CRO vs ENG Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The top spot in the Group 4 will be on the line when England and Croatia face each other in a crunch last group match at Wembley Stadium, in London, tomorrow on Sunday evening (IST).
After Croatia’s stunning win over leaders Spain, the group is wide open and all the three teams are in with a chance to top it and thus can book a seat in the finals to be held in June next year.
For Gareth Southgate and his men, a win in the Nations League will be a chance to forget about the disappointment of the World Cup. To some degree, it was a failure as the Three Lions couldn’t get past the semi-finals. With no disrespect to Croatia, the 1966 World Champions should have been the team playing against France for the ultimate glory considering all things like population, the domestic league and the set-up in a particular country. But it’s a past now and nothing can’t be done about it.
The best way to smoothen the pain is winning and wins, and that’s what England have been doing in the recent games. After losing the first Nations League game against Spain at home, Harry Kane and company drew 0-0 in Rijeka against Croatia. But the result which is perhaps the biggest under Southgate was the 2-3 win against La Roja which has given them a chance to top the group.
Croatia, on the other hand, reignited their own hopes of topping the group with a magnificent 3-2 win over Luis Enrique’s men. Twelve months ago, they had to comfort themselves with a 0-0 draw against Greece to book their place in the World Cup. Now fast forward that period, and Croatia are not only runners-up in Russia, but they are in with a chance to win the Nations League group ahead of both England and Spain.
Zlatko Dalić and his men have achieved so much in the past year that even if they lose this game at Wembley and gets relegated to League B.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
This will be the third match between these two nations this year with Croatia winning the big one at the world cup before holding the Three Lions off to a goalless draw last month. However, England seem to be improving with each passing game and that’s why we think they can at least draw this game.
