Modric tips Tottenham star Kane to get even better
Others had more luck, despite the English Football Association urging fans not to travel.
England's prowess from set-pieces played a huge role in their World Cup success and again proved a potent weapon.
However, even back in England, the soullessness of seeing the national team play in front of empty stands should be a reminder of the importance of not sacrificing supporters who attend games for increased cash revenue from television deals.
Nathaniel Chalobah was an unused substitute as a former Watford youngster continued his meteoric rise in England's 0-0 draw in their behind closed doors Nations League clash in Croatia tonight.
Chants of "God Save the Queen" from England supporters who had gathered outside the ground seemed to lift Gareth Southgate's side after the break but the woodwork and some terrible finishing by Rashford denied them a goal. One chant - "F-- off UEFA, we'll do what we want!" - gave a clear indication of their persistence and refusal to miss a game, whether they are in the ground or not.
Gareth Southgate's men face their own Spanish test on Monday without the suspended Jordan Henderson and John Stones, but there are certainly promising moments to build on.
As a one-off 90-minute experience it was fascinating as the sparse gallery listened to the constant cajoling of Pickford, heard Jordan Henderson ask Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic was he the referee in less than complimentary terms, and discover Southgate's squad have a distinctly unimaginative line in nicknames.
"We're not quite there yet in that aspect, in the way they keep the ball".
"I don't think England are producing players that know how to control a game".
The Three Lions squandered a big chance to win the match through a couple of Marcus Rashford openings early in the second half, while Harry Kane and Eric Dier hit the frame of the goal either side of half time. In the summer we had a system which allowed our players to embed into global football but now they are more experienced.
