England v Croatia – UEFA Euro 2020 Group D
June 13, 2021 @ 2:00 pm BST
England and Croatia play their opening group match of the delayed UEFA Euro 2020, with this match originally due to be played a year ago on the 12th June 2020. These two sides have met regularly in recent years, with Croatia reaching their first FIFA World Cup final in 2018 after coming out 2-1 winners at the semi-final at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow (see below).
The two teams were drawn together in the 2018-19 UEFA Nations League, drawing 0-0 behind closed doors in Croatia in October 2018 before England won 2-1 a month later at Wembley Stadium thanks to late goals from Jesse Lingard and Harry Kane which sent them to the Finals.
