Chalobah unused substitute as Sancho makes England debut in Croatia draw

Gareth Southgate had an eye on the future as he road-tested a new defensive formation in Friday's goalless Nations League draw with Croatia.

Kane won the Golden Boot at the World Cup after scoring twice against Tunisia, three times against Panama and once in the match with Colombia - but he failed to net against Sweden, Croatia or Belgium.

The result left both sides with one point from two games behind runaway leaders Spain, who have six points and host England in Seville on Monday.

Southgate guided England to the World Cup semi-finals in the summer with three centre-backs, but made a shift to a more conventional 4-3-3 in Rijeka.

England have played out a 0-0 draw with Croatia at the Stadion HNK Rijeka to pick up their first UEFA Nations League point. "The most important thing for the team is we create chances, look risky, and the players who didn't score tonight will score".

"The fact is that Modric is the best player in the world officially now and we just lacked that composure, the guile and that know-how that I think a couple of that Croatia team have in [Mario] Mandzukic, [Ivan] Rakitic, [Luka] Modric and [Ivan] Perisic - they've played in Champions League finals and been around the block in the highest quality games and that's what England are just lacking at the moment", Neville told Sky Sports.

It was a move that worked wonders as last night he became the first player born this millennium to play for England.

As for England, numerous stars from their deep run into the World Cup are still in the squad on this worldwide break, like Leicester's Harry Maguire, Manchester United's Jesse Lingard and Tottenham's Harry Kane.

Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford both came close for England on what was a dodgy playing surface while Croatia had a few decent chances of their own.

Croatia were completing a UEFA sanction to play two matches behind closed doors after a swastika symbol was carved into the pitch during a Euro 2016 qualifier against Italy over three years ago.

"We could easily hear the ones on the hill", said Dier. The 20-year-old's form with the national side reflects that at Manchester United, veering from one extreme to the other, but Southgate retains faith in a player who has already gained 28 caps.

Henderson swung in a free-kick from the right and Kane got away a header that beat goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic, only to come back off the crossbar.

"And I had no hesitation in throwing Jadon Sancho on late on". They'll finish them. We've got to make sure we're creating them.
