England vs Croatia Preview: Will England Avenge for World Cup Disappointment?

England will host Croatia at Wembley stadium in their first Euro 2020 group D match on Sunday afternoon.

The two teams will be meeting for the first time since 2018 England defeated Croatia 2-1 in the Nations League. This came after the Croats had tossed England out of the World Cup in the same year. Mario Mandzukic scored the winning goal in extra time in the semis as Croatia progressed with a 2-1 win.
