England turn to next generation to get creative against Croatia

Jordan Henderson

It is fair to say the competitive element has yet to catch on - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp described it as "the most senseless competition in world football" - but England do not want to make qualification for the next Euros tougher by being relegated from their group.

This was as far away from a World Cup semi-final in Moscow as it was possible to get - a packed, vast bowl of a stadium replaced by a barely populated arena with the peace only disturbed by the shouts of players and occasional polite applause. Of course we've still got leaders at Liverpool who implement his message.

Southgate threw on 18-year-old Jadon Sancho for his worldwide debut 12 minutes from time in search of a victor, but the Borussia Dortmund wonder kid couldn't provide a final spark as England had to settle for a point. After coach Julen Lopetegui was sacked on the eve of the tournament after it was revealed he had agreed to take over at Real Madrid, the team - under emergency coach Fernando Hierro - went out on penalties to Russian Federation in the last 16.

Southgate said: "The first half was pretty even but we had a very good chance from a corner, which we probably should have got on the end of". We will change a few players for the upcoming friendly against Jordan. England are fighting to avoid relegation from League A and could do with Kane finding his finishing touch.

Zlatan scored 29 goals in 53 appearances for United, but 28 of those came in his first season before it was curtailed by a serious knee injury suffered in the Europa League.

Dejan Lovren was booked for a clumsy tackle on Sterling as the first half petered out, but a much brighter start to the second half nearly brought a goal for either side. Ross Barkley largely failed to take his chance to impress in the Chelsea midfielder's first global appearance for two-and-a-half years.

"The growth in England at the moment is insane", added Sancho. We're on the right path.

Lallana, 30, has not played since 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on August 20.

"I don't think we should ever be rigid and only have one way of playing".

A night after three of his calls at first base were reversed on video reviews, Angel Hernandez called balls and strikes. He's their ace and will pitch multiple times in this series. "But I got under it", Sanchez said through a translator.

"The only result which interests us is a win", he added. "It's an opportunity to look at some younger players".

"Ben Chilwell was excellent".

The home side got the match under way and tried to get the ball forward immediately, but England got it clear. The Football Supporters Federation, who provide support and advice for English fans at home and overseas, were aware of just 20 supporters making the trip to the Adriatic coast.

"The pitch was tough, we had one off the bar, one off the post and Marcus had a couple I'm sure he'd take on another day". We did really well at Wembley, but there are things to keep improving.
