England 2-1 Croatia

England staged a superb late comeback to beat Croatia at Wembley to reach the finals of the inaugural Uefa Nations League.

Croatia, England’s World Cup semi-final conquerors in Moscow in July, looked set to win once more and relegate Gareth Southgate’s side from the elite group when Andrej Kramaric’s twisting finish put them ahead via a deflection off Eric Dier after 57 minutes.

England needed two goals to top the group and reach the semi-final and final stages in Portugal next June, and at least inflict a small measure of revenge on Croatia for that World Cup disappointment.

And they responded brilliantly to get the win their performance deserved and secure qualification for the next stage of the tournament.

Substitute Jesse Lingard scored from almost on the line with 12 minutes left before, with five minutes remaining, captain Harry Kane slid in Ben Chilwell’s free-kick to send England through and relegate Croatia.
