England v Croatia betting preview
England look to bring a positive end to a memorable year and get revenge over CroatiaEngland are fresh off a a straightforward 3-0 victory over USA on Thursday night, a friendly that marked Wayne Rooney's final appearence. The Three Lions shocked Spain 2-3 on the road in their previous action in the competition and now only goal difference separates the sides after Croatia also recorded a shock victory over Spain. As it stands, Spain top the group on six points. However, losing their last two has opened this one up. Behind the Spanish sit England and Croatia, on four points each. That means either team could win the group with a victory in this one. ENgland and Croatia two teams played out a dull 0-0 last month behind closed doors in Rijeka, a result that wasn’t enough to banish the World Cup heartbreak thanks to Mario Mandzukic’s late stoppage-time winner.
Harry Kane, who has now failed to score for England in seven games, will spearhead the attack, flanked by Raheem Sterling and Jesse Lingard. As back up option, Gareth Southgate can count on Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho. Dele Alli will also be hopeful of retaining his starting spot ahead of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, while Eric Dier and Jordan Henderson look sure starters in midfield despite Ross Barkley is pushing for a start. It could be all change in defence with Kyle Walker, Joe Gomez, John Stones and Luke Shaw set for recalls.
Croatia arrive at Wembley having won just three of their last 11 away gamesCroatia will draw confidence from their 3-2 win over Spain last time out and still have the chance to top the group with a win here, as well as being relegated. A 0-0 draw would hand Spain top spot and relegate Croatia while A score draw would hand Spain top spot but relegate England. The Blazers have been poor on the road after the World Cup, having drawn 1-1 with a weakened Portugal side before to be hammered 6-0 by Spain.
Ivan Rakitic will miss the game after picking up an injury against Spain, meaning that Mateo Kovacic and Marcelo Brozovic will join Luka Modric in the middle of the park. Ante Rebic and Andrej Kramaric should get the nod in attacking positions, while back-up left-back Tin Jedvaj will retain his starting berth after scoring a brace against the Spaniards. Veteran players such as Danijel Subasic, Mario Mandzukic and Vedran Corluka have all retired after the World Cup.
