Southgate expects youthful England to cope with Croatia's empty stadium

12 October, 2018, 08:16 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

Modric and Kane are in line to lead their countries in a behind-closed-doors Nations League clash in Rijeka on Friday.

The current season will no doubt be a learning curve for Sessegnon who can be employed at either left back or left wing, and while he's yet to set the top-flight alight this term, a first ever call-up to England's senior team would do his confidence the world of good.

The newly-crowned FIFA Best Men's player accused the media of failing to give Croatia the recognition they deserved in the build-up to July's 2-1 extra-time victory in Moscow. "That's how I felt". "They'd like to have the encouragement of an incredibly passionate support". "It's a odd environment for both teams, playing in front of an empty stadium, but it's important for us to achieve a good result".

There will be a maximum of 200 people holding top-category tickets from the visiting association as well as police officers, security staff and people carrying out functions relating to the stadium infrastructure. "We've always got to be flexible", he said.

Danny Rose, Danny Welbeck and Alex McCarthy travel to Rijeka having sustained minor injuries with their clubs last weekend.

Another loss tonight would make Croatia overwhelming favourites to finish bottom of their three-team group and suffer relegation from the Nations League's highest level. "Several players who can't play tomorrow, so we need to come up with the best possible solutions". It is not experimentation.

"When I said that after the game, it wasn't meant to be the players or the head coach but more in regards to the media and some commentary we could read or watch", he said.

"It's not experimentation, it's players we believe in".

"There's nobody in the squad that's here that we we're not thinking of putting into the team".

"It was a little bit of extra motivation for the team, not that we needed any for a World Cup semi-final".

Croatia's starting XI: Livakovic, Jedvaj, Lovren, Vida, Pivaric, Rakitic, Kovacic, Kramaric, Modric, Perisic, Rebic.
