Alan Shearer’s England v Croatia preview: Three Lions to start with win at Wembley
Our Matchday Squad journalist will be covering England throughout Euro 2020
Finally, a year later than planned, but here we go, England v Croatia at Wembley, and what a start it would be for England to get off to a winning start in front of their fans.
There is plenty of expectation surrounding this England side because of all the talented youngsters Gareth Southgate has at his disposal, the likes of Jack Grealish, Mason Mount, Phil Foden, added to the experience of Harry Kane, Jordan Henderson, it will be interesting to see what starting eleven he goes with on Sunday.
There are one or two injury concerns for Gareth, Harry Maguire in particular, and if we have plenty of options in the forwards positions, defensively there are some question marks, but I think they can get off to a winning start, against the World Cup runners-up from 2018. That’s because Croatia have lost several big names from that team, and although they still have Luka Modric at the heart of their team, I expect England to take three points.
