England vs Croatia: Euro 2020 – LIVE!

The World Cup semi-final defeat in Moscow three years ago will still be a sore memory for much of the England squad, but Gareth Southgate will be telling his players to look ahead, not back.

The England manager has a few selection issues to resolve, and is expected to pull a surprise by naming Kieran Trippier as his left-back in a back four, while Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho will have to wait to make an impact off the bench.

Croatia are not the force they were on their path to the World Cup final, but the Three Lions will still be wary of any first-match slip-ups as they look to take control of Group D from the off.

Will we see any legends today? Might be a bit early in the tournament for that.

It starts here

It’s day three at Euro 2020 but day one for England as they take on Croatia in Group D.

As ever, the Three Lions are tipped among the favourites and will be looking to go deep in a tournament in which eight games are hosting at Wembley, including today’s.

Kick-off is at 2pm BST, and we have both Dan Kilpatrick and James Robson at Wembley.
