The blockbuster game of the UEFA Nations League will takes place at the Wembley stadium in London where England take on Croatia which is a do or die game for both teams. Both sides are capable of getting relegated or qualifying for the semi-finals next year depending on how things pan out in the 90 minutes. With so much uncertainty surrounding the teams, it sets up for a mouth-watering contest one in which the fans will be on edge throughout.
Early team news coming from the English camp is that Deli Ali will not start the game for the Three Lions as Gareth Southgate may opt for two defensive midfielders in Eric Dier and Jordan Henderson. Ross Barkley who has been sublime for Chelsea in the league will provide the attacking prowess in the centre. Ali, who played an hour in the last game against the USA is only returning from a long injury lay-off and the Croatia game could have been way too demanding for the Tottenham man. Marcus Rashford and Rahim Sterling will return along with skipper Harry Kane in a complete revamp of the front three. Jordan Sancho who was a live wire against the USA could be brought on from the bench depending on the situation.
Zlatko Dalic would have been pleased with the way his team tormented Spain in Zagreb but there is little time to celebrate with another acid test. They have been dealt a huge blow with star midfielder Ivan Rakitic declared unfit for the game. His absence will surely be felt especially when they face a strong midfield of England. Tin Jedvaj was the hero for Croatia against Spain and he will be in the spotlight again with Croatia needing goals. Dejan Lovren who has been in the news for the past two days about his comments on Sergio Ramos now faces the challenging task of stopping Harry Kane. He was successful with Liverpool when playing against Tottenham Hotspurs and his confidence will be up.
There are several permutations and combination surrounding the game with Spain hoping the game ends in a draw as it takes them to the semis. England can quickly get over the heartbreaking loss in the semifinals of the 2018 World Cup with a win although an unpredictable Croatia makes it a very tough task. It is games like these that will add to the glory of the UEFA Nations League- a relatively new competition.
