England host Croatia at Wembley on Sunday in their last Nations League group game looking to secure qualification for the finals of the UEFA tournament.

The two sides played out a goalless draw behind closed doors in Rijeka last month, which came less than 100 days after Croatia won their 2018 World Cup semi-final showdown.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at five memorable meetings between the two sides.
