England v Croatia Prediction - Form (All Competitions)
England have been impressive in their last matches with wins in all of them. Croatia, on the other hand, have been inconsistent, and are coming off a loss from Belgium in a friendly match. Let’s take an in-depth look into both teams.
England v Croatia Prediction - Preview
England has a side that looks to be their strongest shot for a major international trophy. Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford lead the forward attack; Jack Grealish and Mason Mount are notables in midfield; Harry Maguire and John Stones on the defending end, and Dean Henderson, Sam Johnstone and Jordan Pickford as keepers. The Three Lions last conquest was a friendly against Romania, which they won 1-0 thanks to Rashford’s penalty at the 68th minute. Manager Gareth Southgate faces a huge challenge as they try to get revenge from the team that eliminated them in the World Cup semis.
- England’s best finish in the Euros was third overall (in 1968 and 1996).
- They are currently ranked 4th overall in the FIFA men’s football rankings.
Croatia has gone through a drastic change from the squad that played in the 2018 World Cup Final against eventual champions France. Mario Mandžukić, Ivan Rakitić and Danijel Subašić, who were key figures in the squad have since retired, but Luka Modric is still very much active and deadly as ever. The Vatreni, who are managed by Zlatko Dalic, have struggled to find winning form, and have lost their latest outing to Belgium, 0-1 (a friendly match), no thanks to Romelu Lukaku’s goal. It may take a miracle again for Croatia to repeat their World Cup feat against England.
- Croatia’s highest achievement at the Euros was the quarter-finals (1996, 2008).
- Luka Modric, who led the Vatreni to the 2018 World Cup final, also won the Ballon d’Or that year.

England v Croatia Prediction - Final Thoughts
England are the favourites in a group that includes Croatia, Czech Republic and Scotland. Barring another stroke of genius from the Croatia side, this match is England’s for the taking. The presence of the likes of Modric, Mateo Kovačić and Šime Vrsaljko won’t be enough to overcome a squad brimming with talent. Let’s take a look at the prediction.
