England vs Croatia Prediction & Tips
Football’s coming home “is the recurring motif of a song that was created to celebrate the 1996 European Championships played in England and has become the catchphrase of English fans who have since sung it at every major international event hoping to bring back a missing trophy to their country. from the distant 1966 World Cup. This time football will return home, at least for three games, because Gareth Southgate’s England will play at Wembley the matches of the Euro 2020 group stage and at the debut will face Croatia of Zlatko Dalic , a team that in 2018 reached the final of the World Cup in Russia but which is a distant relative of that selection, at least by reading the names of the squad that compose it. The national team of the “Three Lions” prepared for the European Championship with two rather disappointing friendlies in the performance but comforting in the result: 1-0 to Austria and 1-0 to Romania. Croatia, on the other hand, after an anonymous 1-1 against Armenia lost 1-0 on the field of Belgium. For the English it could be the revenge of the last World Cup, when Croatia had the better of the semifinals.

In their last 6 victories England have scored a total of 15 goals, conceding only 1.
Croatia have just 2 wins in their last 9 games, with 5 defeats and 2 draws to complete the tally.
The two Croatian victories in the last 9 games have come at home against modest Cyprus and (1-0) and Malta (3-0).
The Mandzukic and Rakitic generation is no longer in the ranks of Croatia and this is already a first discriminating factor. The national team in chess after the World Cup has never impressed and then the England of the leading club teams in Europe will play at home. The 1 inevitably seems like a game to try.
