  • CROATIA SUBS

    Here’s who will be on Croatia’s bench for today’s opener with England.

    Manager Zlatko Dalic has put together a strong team in his starting line-up.

    Of course, the likes of Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic are not part of the squad as they have retired from international duty, just like Danijel Subasic and Ivan Strinic.

    Subs: Brekalo, Kalinic, Vlasic, Budimir, Pasalic, Skoric, Badelj, Petkovic, Juranovic, Sluga, Bradaric, Ivanusec.

  • CROATIA XI

    Croatia manager Zlatko Dalic, who led them to the 2018 World Cup Final, also appears set to play in a 4-3-3 formation.

    Domink Livakovic starts in goal with Sime Vrsaljko at right-back and Josko Gvardiol on the other side, while Domagoj Vida and Duje Caleta-Car team up at centre-back.

    Luka Modric, Marcelo Brozovic and Mateo Kovacic link up in midfield.

    Ante Rebic, Andrej Kramaric and Ivan Persisic lead the line

  • ENGLAND XI

    Here’s England’s starting line-up for their Euro 2020 opener against Croatia at Wembley Stadium.

    Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate seems to have opted for a 4-3-3 formation with Jordan Pickford between the sticks and Kyle Walker at right-back as well as Kieran Trippier on the other side, while John Stones and Tyrone Mings team up at centre-back.

    Kalvin Phillips, Mason Mount and Declan Rice team up in midfield.

    And Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling as well as Harry Kane lead the line.

    As expected, Harry Maguire didn’t make the squad due to his ankle injury

  • AIN'T NO MOUNT-AIN HIGH

    Chelsea star Mason Mount enjoyed a stunning season with the Blues that saw him winning the Champions League trophy.

    Now Mount is getting ready for his first ever game in a major international tournament.

    The midfielder is very excited but understands it's going to be hard against Croatia.

    Here's what he said:

  • LEAKED XI

    It appears that England’s starting XI ahead of today’s Euro 2020 opener against Croatia has been leaked.

    That is according To The Athletic, who claim there will be no Manchester United or Arsenal players in Gareth Southgate’s starting line-up.

    More specifically, Southgate appears to have opted for a 4-3-3 formation in what is most certainly NOT the Three Lions’ official team to play against the 2018 World Cup finalists.

    Here it is: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Mings, Trippier; Rice, Phillips, Mount; Foden, Sterling, Kane

  • FULL CANCELO STATEMENT

    Here's the full statement from FPF after Joao Cancelo tested positive for coronavirus and was ruled out of Euro 2020

    The announcement read: "Under-21 international Diogo Dalot will join the National Team's delegation in Budapest to prepare for his debut at Euro 2020. The AC Milan player will replace Joao Cancelo, who tested positive for Covid-19 following a rapid antigen test carried out this Saturday by the FPF Health and Performance Unit.

    "The Hungarian health authorities were immediately informed and the player – who is doing well – was placed in isolation. The result of the test carried out by USP was confirmed by an RT-PCR test carried out on Joao Cancelo also on Saturday and whose result was known on Sunday morning.

    "In accordance with the Covid-19 protocol defined by UEFA before the Euro 2020 matches, all players and members of the entourage underwent RT-PCR tests on Saturday. The results, with the exception of Joao Cancelo, were negative.

    "The Hungarian health authorities became aware of compliance with the protection procedures, fully respected according to the UEFA protocol, in a group that also has a high rate of vaccine coverage and authorised the National Team to comply with the stipulated plan for the European Championship without any changes"

  • MAGUIRE LATEST

    It looks like Manchester United ace Harry Maguire won’t be starting for England against Croatia.

    Maguire trained with the rest of the Three Lions team but doesn’t seem set to make a return from an ankle injury just yet.

    Gareth Southgate even claimed that the possibility of the centre-back getting involved would be a “long shot”.

    England face Croatia at Wembley Stadium at 2pm

  • CANCELO OUT

    Manchester City star Joao Cancelo has been ruled out of Euro 2020 after testing positive for coronavirus.

    Cancelo has been replaced by Manchester United loanee Diogo Dalot ahead of Tuesday's opener with Hungary.

    The Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) said: "Under-21 international Diogo Dalot will join the National Team's delegation in Budapest to prepare for his debut at Euro 2020.

    "The AC Milan player will replace Joao Cancelo, who tested positive for Covid-19 following a rapid antigen test carried out this Saturday by the FPF Health and Performance Unit"

  • TAYLOR PRAISE

    Referee Anthony Taylor has also received praise for his quick reaction after Christian Eriksen's collapse.

    It took Taylor just a mere few seconds until he stopped the game and called the medics in.

    And of course the medical team did a brilliant job treating and resuscitating Eriksen.

    The Inter Milan star's condition continues to be stable

  • SIMON SAYS

    Denmark captain Simon Kjaer has received immense praise for his reaction after his team-mate Christian Eriksen collapsed on the pitch.

    Kjaer showed incredible leadership and composure as he secured Eriksen's neck, cleared his airwaves and administered CPR before medics arrived on the scene.

    The AC Milan centre-back was then seen consoling the former Tottenham star's wife Sabrina along with Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

    But of course, no one can count out the amazing work the medical team put together which saved the Inter Milan star's life

  • ERIKSEN LATEST

    The Danish Football Association have released a statement with all the latest regarding Christian Eriksen's health.

    The DBU have announced that Eriksen's condition remains "stable" and will continue to be hospitalised for further examination.
