StoriesHow England's greatest weakness is badly exposed by Croatia and Spain

It got no better for Rashford two minutes later, when the Manchester United frontman failed to slot past the goalkeeper after being played through on goal by Raheem Sterling.

Neither side were in full flow in a boring atmosphere in Croatia, but England had the better of the chances with Harry Kane hitting the bar and having a goal ruled out for offside.

"The atmosphere is not easy for anybody, it is sad for football but hopefully this is our last time", said Croatia manager Zlatko Dalic. "I don't know who it is good for".

The Three Lions wasted golden chances during a 0-0 draw with Croatia on Friday, with Gareth Southgate showcasing a new look for the team.

Gareth Southgate's side, who will now prepare to face Spain on Monday, would have been looking to exact some form of retribution against the country that knocked them out of the World Cup in the semi-finals in the summer.

The Nations League match had to be played behind closed doors, however, it proved to be a rather boring affair as both sides earned a point from the game.

Croatia should have opened the scoring 37 minutes in through the first half's only real opportunity, only for Andrej Kramaric to hit the ball into the ground when picked out by Perisic's left-sided cross, allowing Jordan Pickford to make the save.




Mario Mandzukic scored the winning goal to end England's World Cup dream in Moscow, but without the Juventus striker, who has since retired from worldwide football, Croatia lacked a focal point up front.

"We could easily hear the ones on the hill", said Dier.

And six minutes after the break Kane rose highest to a Henderson free-kick only to see his looping header come back off the crossbar.

None of the trio are expected to start against Spain, but Southgate may want to get some game time out of them during the worldwide break.

"We used the ball well against a very good team, so very pleased with it".

There was also a glimpse of the future as 18-year-old substitute Sancho became the first player born this millennium to play for the senior side, while 21-year-old Ben Chilwell impressed.
