CRO vs ENG Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
In a rematch of the 2018 FIFA World Cup semi-final, Croatia take on England at Stadion HNK Rijeka where some eerie settings are awaiting both the teams.
This UEFA Nations League match will be played behind the closed doors due to a sanction imposed by UEFA on Croatia for their failure in stopping the fans marking the Swastika sign on their Football ground before a game in 2015. Interestingly, this is England’s 988th senior international football match since 1872 and is the first time that the 1966 World Champions are going to play behind closed doors, often labelled as Ghost Games by football players.
For the home team, this will feel like a big robbery and a total unjust as this will be the first time that Croatia are playing at home and instead of getting a rousing welcome from home fans for their heroics in Russia, some policemen and the ground-staff will only be there waiting for the match to be completed in total peace.
Meanwhile, both these teams lost their first game of this group against Spain, Croatia were thumped 6-0 in Elche while England managed to keep things at a respectable score to 1-2 at Wembley.
After scoring in in each of their last 20 home games, the home team may feel slightly confident heading into this match than the Three-Lions who have kept just three clean sheets in their last 12 games.
