Croatia vs. England - Football Match Report

Croatia vs. England - Football Match Report

"It's been tough after the World Cup, not getting much rest, but I think I've dealt with it well", said Kane.

Sancho got the same award at the European Under-17 championships a year ago, as well as being part of the squad that won the Under-17 World Cup, although his participation was limited after being recalled by Dortmund halfway through the tournament to play for the first team.

England manager Gareth Southgate was disappointed with the outcome, saying: "Second half we were by far the better team and if we had taken our chances we would have won the game". "We've got different qualities".

"We want to maintain that excitement because the fans are seeing unique, fabulous football".

Compared to Neymar by his former England under-16 coach Dan Micciche, Sancho has more assists than any player in Europe's top five leagues with nine this season, including one in the Champions League.

"I can assure you we have been studying the videos".

Chilwell was sharp in challenges, sound with his distribution and produced a high quality first-half cross that nearly brought a goal for Raheem Sterling.

Kane headed a Henderson free kick against the bar before Manchester United forward Rashford served up a pair of astonishing misses in the space of two minutes.

Henderson also highlighted 18-year-old Jadon Sancho as another creative option, but the midfielder believes it would be wrong to rule out 30-year-old Lallana based purely on his age, given what he can offer.

It certainly promises to be a fascinating encounter as Spain look to maintain their strong start to the UEFA Nations League against England.

It was a more frustrating night for Chelsea's Ross Barkley, given his first England appearance since May 2016 after his recent renaissance.

Lallana, 30, has not played since 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on August 20.

Henderson and Walker combined to win a corner with a swift counter down the right as the game reached the half-hour, but again Croatia repelled the set piece.

Jordan Henderson is tipping Adam Lallana to make a positive impact for both club and country this season.

Before kickoff, the thud of the ball was audible as players warmed up before the national anthems of both teams were met by just a ripple of applause from the dignitaries. The Football Supporters Federation, who provide support and advice for English fans at home and overseas, were aware of just 20 supporters making the trip to the Adriatic coast.

"We know that the level of difficulty is very high". "With us [Dortmund] he's doing really well".
