Southgate rallies England ahead of Nations League decider

Sunday, 18 Nov, 2018

Croatia had taken one point from their previous two Nations League games after appearing to suffer a hangover from reaching the this year's World Cup final.

Sports Mole looks at how England could line up for their winner-takes-all UEFA Nations League showdown with Croatia at Wembley. Rakitic looked anxious as he left the stadium knowing his injury might be serious.

The full-time whistle in the semi-final was followed by scenes of delirium as Croatia celebrated reaching their first World Cup final and Rakitic defended his team-mates actions in the immediate aftermath of the victory.

Croatia's victory over Spain on Thursday night - while England were bidding farewell to Wayne Rooney with a 3-0 win over U.S. - means that just two points separate the three teams with only Sunday's match remaining. We learned a lot in both matches.

So the equation is fairly simple for Zlatko Dalić and the Croatian team, beat England and a semi-final spot is assured. "I'm happy with how we played even though there are things to improve".

"My respect for them is enormous and it is not a coincidence that they have since been capable of going on and beaten Spain in Spain", the Barcelona midfielder told the Daily Mail.

"I think we've proved ourselves across the year to be two of the best teams in the world this year", the England manager added.

"We already knew the situation with a change in generation and we are trying to create a team", Luis Enrique said.

Once back in Catalonia, he'll undergo tests to determine the extent of the injury.
