England vs Croatia Live | UEFA Nations League | Date: Sunday, 18 November 2018 | Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET | Venue: Wembley Stadium (London)
England will face Croatia in the group’s final game on Sunday afternoon to end the year in style. The two sides have met quite frequently lately, as another match in the UEFA Champions League followed in the semifinals of the World Cup.
While Croatia improved this summer in Russia thanks to the goal of Mario Mandzukic, it was England who left the best impression after the first edition of the League of Nations. The Three Lions surprised Spain 2 or 3 on the road during their previous match in the competition.
Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane inspired a three-goal lead in England during the break against Benito Villamarin. Furia Roja scored just two consolation goals in the second half. Can Gareth Southgate’s men get such a win in their final game of the year against Croatia?

England vs Croatia Live: Prediction
Gareth Southgate will not have a significant absence for this match against Croatia. It will be very interesting to see if he will use the rising star of Borussia Dortmund, Jadon Sancho. Callum Wilson also received his first call from the national team with Jamie Vardy of Leicester City.
Croatia will also be in their strongest formation, but they are still trying to find their game without Danijel Subasic, Mario Mandzukic and Vedran Corluka, all of whom have retired after the World Cup.
The team led by Zlatko Dalic failed to win in three consecutive games after winning second place in Russia. The negative test stopped a month ago when the Croatian team defeated Jordan 2-1 in a friendly match.
England will certainly participate with more enthusiasm and we will support them to claim the loot at 1.83 here.
