Croatia 3 Spain 2

Just a few days after beating the United States in an worldwide friendly, England is back in action on Sunday in a massive Nations League contest against Croatia at Wembley Stadium.

Sports Mole looks at how England could line up for their winner-takes-all UEFA Nations League showdown with Croatia at Wembley.

The former Sevilla player made way for Nikola Vlasic on the 67th minute after seemingly pointing to his hamstring, an injury to which could lead to a lengthy lay off for Ivan Rakitic and pose as a threat to Barcelona.

Croatia: The World Cup finalists are in an interesting situation where they can catapult from worst to first in the group with a win at Wembley - despite entering Sunday with a negative-five goal differential.

Their place in the finals of the new competition now hangs in the balance, however, after losing 3-2 at home to England and defeat in Zagreb.

"It is unprecedented that you come off the back of a major tournament and have so many strong tests in such a short period". Unfortunately, Rakitic could not make it until the final whistle during the 3-2 victory of his nation.

"It was just a moment of complete madness for us".

"I think we've proved ourselves across the year to be two of the best teams in the world this year", the England manager added. They have the potential to go further and I know from the mentality of the players, even though they are young, the mentality is right.

Rakitic is now ruled out of England vs Croatia and will fly back to Barcelona instead. "You felt like you wanted to go to all the continents of the world and hug another Croatian".

With only the England v Croatia match remaining in the group, the standings are as follows.
