Betting Tip Prediction: England 2 – Croatia 1

England kick off their Euros campaign with a chance to exact revenge on Croatia for their 2018 World Cup semi-final defeat.

The Three Lions head into the tournament with high expectations for a youthful squad that is packed with huge talents.

Croatia head into the European Championships having made it all the way to the Final back in the 2018 World Cup.

However, Zlatko Dalić’s side have dropped to 14th in FIFA World Rankings following a number of poor results over the last two years.

They are currently on a run of seven defeats in their last ten matches, having also just lost to Belgium and drawn with Armenia.

Kane has proven himself to be one of the best strikers in the world having just enjoyed one of the best seasons of his career with Spurs.

He’s scored 12 goals in his last 14 competitive appearances for England and he will be eager to get off to a strong start in the race for the Golden Boot on Sunday.

England vs Croatia betting tips: Match preview

England arrive at the Euros ranked 4th in the world.

Southgate has selected a youthful squad with an average age of just 25.

The Three Lions squad is brimming with young talents such as Mason Mount, Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham.

However, there is also a mix of experience in the squad, with players like Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker.

In preparation for the tournament, England produced two wins from two defeating both Austria and Romania.

Southgate’s side have won 11 of their last 14 matches.

Croatia’s recent struggles

Croatia’s form since the 2018 World Cup has been somewhat of a concern.

Their poor form has seen them drop into 14th heading into the tournament.

Zlatko Dalić’s side have suffered seven defeats in their last ten matches.

Over recent weeks they were held to a very underwhelming draw against Armenia.

They were then beaten by Belgium last Sunday.

England team news vs Croatia

England are set to be without Harry Maguire for the first two group games.

The defender has been sidelined with an ankle injury.

Tyrone Mings is the player who is expected to replace him against Croatia.

Southgate has left England supporters guessing as to which formation he will select.

Reports have suggested he could use a 3-4-3, although in the build-up to the tournament he has been using a 4-3-3.

Croatia team news vs England

Former Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is set to miss out on the game.

Lovren is a doubt for Sunday’s clash due to a muscle injury.

Duje Ćaleta-Car and Domagoj Vida are therefore expected to be the defensive partnership.

Dalić is also expected to pack the midfield with experience by select Luka Modric, Marcelo Brozovic and Mateo Kovacic.
