Sancho's England debut impresses Kane and Dier

Saul Niguez

Croatia were completing a UEFA sanction after a swastika symbol was carved into the pitch during a Euro 2016 qualifier against Italy over three years ago. The most important thing for the team is we create chances, look unsafe, and I have faith the players who didn't score will score.

Southgate said: "The first half was pretty even but we had a very good chance from a corner, which we probably should have got on the end of". "They were the only ones here".

Southgate said: 'He buried that chance but was just offside, but Harry will get us goals.

"I just think that's part of him gaining strength in the game and understanding at Dortmund of how they're playing and then with us just easing him into the way we play and the environment".

Croatia's next game is a friendly against Jordan.

For England, their next game comes in the Nations League as they play their away game against Spain on Monday night.

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has proven himself to be better than England team-mate Eric Dier, according to Stuart Pearce.

The Three Lions were outclassed by Croatia in the semi-final, in large past thanks to the play of midfielders Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic.

Rashford tried his luck from distance and Perisic stung the palms of Pickford when play resumed, before England struck the woodwork again.

England avoided defeat this time, but any comparisons between the two occasions are utterly futile.




That took his tally to 154 goals in the last four seasons - figures which have left him no room to hide as the spotlight ruthlessly turns on his current England drought.

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.

England enters having lost its only UEFA Nations League bout, falling to Spain 2-1.

With no fervent crowd to contend against, England did not have to endure the hostility that can unnerve even the most experienced of performers. "We should have been more ruthless". We showed good endeavour and creative play.

"Against the top nations it is fine margins and they are the ones we have got to start turning in our favour".

"I just stay focused on my job and what I need to do".

"I set a standard for myself and I want to reach that standard every game I play".

On the performances of Sancho and Chilwell: "We know Jadon can have an impact in the game. He should be really pleased".

"It was odd, the first experience of it for all of us", Dier told Sky Sports. The first half was even.

"When you walk out and the national anthem is on and you're singing it to no-one - hopefully it's something we don't have to experience too many times in our career".
