England begin their Euro 2020 journey with a tough encounter on Sunday, as they renew hostilities with Croatia at the Wembley Stadium, three years after the Chequered Ones dashed their 2018 World Cup dreams. Gareth Southgate has one of the strongest sides in the Championship and he would be hoping to get off to a flying start in Euro 2020. The Three Lions are already being tipped to go all the way in the tournament, after they managed back-to-back clean sheets against Austria and Romania in their recent outings.
Croatia have been a painful thorn in the side of England and Zlatko Dalic’s men can cause a major upset for the host team in their own backyard. The Chequered Ones drew 1-1 against Armenia on June 1, before going down 0-1 against Belgium in their most recent international friendly on June 6. Coming to the head-to-head record, Croatia have come up as winners in four of their last five such matches. However, England defeated Croatia 2-1 at Wembley in November 2018 to qualify for the semi-finals of the 2019 UEFA Nations League. The Euro 2020 England vs Croatia match will kick off at 06:30 PM IST.
