What do Croatia need to win the UEFA Nations League?

The winners of each of the four groups in League A advance to the final four of the competition.

"I am sure we have it in us to beat England", Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic said.

The full-time whistle in the semi-final was followed by scenes of delirium as Croatia celebrated reaching their first World Cup final and Rakitic defended his team-mates actions in the immediate aftermath of the victory.

"The most important thing for us was not to let them play out [from defence] comfortably", he added. We learned a lot in both matches.

"We've wanted to keep improving and I think the players have shown that mentality as well".

"We want healthy players and Ivan in this moment is not 100 percent ready".

Relegation from the top tier awaits the defeated side, while a draw would see Spain top Group A4 despite losing 3-2 in their last two matches.

That was the same scoreline that Slaven Bilic's men triumphed by 11 years ago at Wembley, where Steve McClaren was labelled the "Wally with the Brolly" as the Three Lions missed Euro 2008.

Both in attack and defense, the team was playing well again. "They will be pushing for more".

"We knew we were in a group with two of the best teams in the world but I'm not anxious about my team". "The best of this new-look team is yet to come".

"We already knew the situation with a change in generation and we are trying to create a team", Luis Enrique said. "To be around them and see how they have developed and see how Gareth is coaching them is great".
