What do Croatia need to win the UEFA Nations League?

A draw at Wembley on Sunday would clinch Spain a ticket to the last four of the Nations League finals.

Meanwhile, England manager Gareth Southgate said his side had improved since losing to Croatia in the World Cup semifinals.

A tame first half was followed by a frantic second as Croatia were twice pegged back by a rampant Spain side, Dani Ceballos levelling after Andrej Kramaric's opener, before a Sergio Ramos penalty cancelled out Jedvaj's first global goal.

"I think we've learned with every experience that we've had", he said. Unfortunately, Rakitic could not make it until the final whistle during the 3-2 victory of his nation. At Barca there are plays that are rehearsed and trained and I could see that England also had those plays very well-worked.

"The most important thing for us was not to let them play out [from defence] comfortably", he added.

After playing in 70 matches during the 2017/18 season including those on worldwide duty and in the FIFA World Cup 2018, Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic was expected to have some rest, but it has looked like the 30-year-old and the word "rest" have become anonymous.

Chelsea defender's bold claim: "We Will Overtake Manchester City"
Eden Hazard's free-kick into the area found Morata who scored his sixth goal in his last six outings for the Blues. 'The most important thing is we need to be prepared so that what happened to Liverpool doesn't happen to us'.

"A lot of people said we wouldn't be able to take another extra-time but we played our best extra-time of the tournament".

'I'm more anxious about our team because we played against Spain two days ago.

Both in attack and defense, the team was playing well again. We have a completely new team, a completely new mindset.

What time does England vs Croatia kick-off?

"We already knew the situation with a change in generation and we are trying to create a team", Luis Enrique said. We've got huge respect for them, their players, their coach, their mentality.
