Finished in style: England has the opportunity to finish the "brilliant" this year with the semifinal certification of the League of Nations. It will take on Croatia at full ferment, Sunday at Wembley.
What could be better than to qualify for the Final Four Nations by beating a team that missed them overtime in the finals of the World Cup in Russia?
Match to exit or multiply
The equation is simple: the winner of the shock will go to the next round, the loser will develop in the league in the next edition. A draw will be eligible for Spain, and relegate England (in case of goals) or Croatia (if 0-0).

The coach, who lavished his "three lions" on his audience, did manage to put together a young and dynamic player, allowing England to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1990.
"I think everyone wants to move to another stage and qualify for the semi-finals (by the League of Nations) by going out from a tough team, so it's a very good game that everyone is waiting for with impatience"South said, confident after the victory is relatively easy, although the team even resumed more (Sancho, Winks, Chilwell, etc.), against the United States Thursday (3-0).
"We know almost everything there is to know about Croatia, especially their will, and Wembley will have great players who will love this challenge" He warned the man in the vest.
Without a rocket
Great players yes, but Zlatko Dalitz will in any case do without Ivan Rakitic, back in Barcelona because of muscle injury. "There is no reason to mourn an absentee, we will find another solution and go to Wembley to enjoy our football" Launched the coach. The absence will not be too close to the good atmosphere in Croatia, after the terrible victory at the end of the strain on Spain on Thursday (3-2).
"They have a great youth team and it will be a great match, but we will not let go. We have great respect for them, but also for ourselves ", Warned Dalik after the success against "Roja" who crushed the "Vatreni" on the first leg (6-0).
The double author against Spain, Jedvaj Tin do not match in good mood and confidence : "We have to do the same thing against England … We know we can control English, we're better than them."
But be careful. The "Three Lions" will arrive fresh: global tyrants Cain, Trifair, Sterling, Rachford, Henderson, Walker stones played little or no against the United States.
