England vs Croatia FIFA World Cup 2018

One of the most recent matchups between the two football nations was in the 2018 FIFA World Cup when they both met in the semifinals of the tournament. England took an early lead via a Kieran Trippier free-kick, however Ivan Perisic sent the game to extra time before Mario Mandzukic netted the winner and advanced his country to the FIFA World Cup Final.

There have been meetings in the UEFA Nations League since that night in Russia, where England have managed to win and draw, whilst there have been meetings in qualifying games, as well as the UEFA European Championships.

The last time the two sides met in this competition was in the 2004 Euros, with the Three Lions winning 4-2. The Croats opened the scoring via Niko Kovac before Paul Scholes and a double from Wayne Rooney turned it completely around. Igor Tudor pulled one back but Frank Lampard then finished the job in their Group B encounter.

Croatia knocked England out of playing in the 2008 UEFA European Championships with Scott Carson having a howler, whereas their defeat in the game prior to that saw Paul Robinson make a huge mistake as the ball bobbled over his foot following a Gary Neville back pass.
