Euro 2020: England vs Croatia preview, team news, prediction and tips
June 12


England and Croatia will lock horns in the matchday 1 of Euro 2020 Group D at Wembley on Sunday. The kick-off is at 15:00 CET.


It's been almost three years since Croatia put an end to England's World Cup hopes in the tournament's semi-final in Russia with Mario Mandzukic scoring an extra-time winner on that night in Moscow. Both sides have had completely different fortunes since then as the Three Lions are now considered as the hot favourites to win the European Championship while the Chequered Ones would arguably be satisfied with the knock-out stage qualification given their recent struggles.

Team news

Zlatko Dalic has a fully fit squad at his disposal for the weekend's encounter while Bukayo Saka won't help Gareth Southgate's side on Sunday. Harry Maguire also remain doubtful for the hosts as he only returned to the main-group training a couple of days ago after overcoming an ankle injury.


England will kick off their path to the Wembley final on the back of six victories on the bounce while Croatia have only claimed three wins in their last 10 matches, including a 1-1 draw with Armenia and a 1-0 loss to Belgium earlier this month. The Three Lions have already gained revenge on the Croats for the bitter WC semis loss by beating Dalic's men 2-1 in the Nations League in 2018 and we do expect Southgate's crop to claim all three points this time around. Still, you can never write off the World Cup runners-up regardles of their current form so let's bet on BTTS in this one.
