Southampton's Alex McCarthy withdraws from England squad

Who should make England boss Gareth Southgate's XI vs Croatia

"We felt they disrespected Croatia".

Gareth Southgate will gauge the evolution of his team since the summer tournament at an empty Stadion HNK Rijeka on Friday with Uefa having barred supporters from the fixture after a swastika was marked on their pitch before a Euro 2016 qualifier against Italy.

"I'm sure Croatia feel the same".

Southgate's side were beaten by Croatia in Russian Federation earlier this year when they stood on the cusp of their first World Cup final appearance since 1966. "They'd like to have the encouragement of an incredibly passionate support".

Luka Modric has reiterated his comments that the English media underestimated Croatia ahead of their World Cup semi-final in Russian Federation. "It's a unusual environment for both teams, playing in front of an empty stadium, but it's important for us to achieve a good result".

Southgate said: "It means Croatia don't get the energy the home support can give you in those moments when you're under pressure".

The actor said she was being forced and pressurised to do the steps but after she refused, the producer threatened to defame her. Recently, Dutta received an apology from CINTAA for not taking timely action after she filed a complaint.

Southgate will be without Tottenham left-back Rose and Southampton goalkeeper McCarthy for those games after withdrawing from the squad on Thursday due to the "minor injuries" they arrived with.

Jadon Sancho, James Maddison, Mason Mount and Lewis Dunk are in the senior squad for the first time, but the quartet have seamlessly slotted in.

Another loss tonight would make Croatia overwhelming favourites to finish bottom of their three-team group and suffer relegation from the Nations League's highest level. We've obviously got a different team from the team that played in the semi-final and it's a good challenge for us. It is not experimentation. "It was such a big occasion for us as players and the nation, and so hard to take". But, as a team, we are looking to how we improve and bring younger players into the system.

"It's not experimentation, it's players we believe in".

"It was a little bit of extra motivation for the team, not that we needed any for a World Cup semi-final".

"I am looking at their midfield - Modric, Rakitic, Kovacic, with Rebic and Perisic".
