England and Croatia eye top spot League A, Group 4 when the two sides meet at Wembley. It’s a winner-takes-all fixture that will take the triumpher through to the inaugural Nations League finals while the losing side will face relegation from the top tier.

The two sides will face-off for the second time after World Cup 2018 where Croatia got the better off England. They will be confident after Thursday’s friendly win over the USA and come out to avenge WC loss.

Croatia, on the other hand, come into the fixture riding high on Thursday’s win over Spain, although they must keep going since this is the all-important decider.
