All eyes are on England to make a splash in Group D at Euro 2020, but opening opponents Croatia have history on their side after knocking the Three Lions out of the 2018 World Cup semi-finals. Gareth Southgate’s side have since gone unbeaten in two UEFA Nations League meetings with the Croats (1W, 1D), but reproducing that kind of record at a European Championship is a different task altogether.

What TV Channel is England-Croatia on?

The competition may be new, but it’s a similar story of unbalanced expectations for England, who enter Euro 2020 as one of the leading favorites despite having not won a major title since the 1966 World Cup. And the Group D grind begins against probably their most difficult examination of the first round, staring down the same side that brought about their exit from the running in Russia three years ago:

That 2-1 victory also saw Croatia advance to a World Cup final for the first time in their history, going on to finish as runners-up against a far more fancied French team:

It wouldn’t be jumping the gun to suggest whomever wins this game will be locked in to finish top of the group, though recent form hints this isn’t the same Croatia that beat England in 2018. Zlatko Dalic & Co. have won only four of their last 13 games, and three of those victories took place on home soil. The Three Lions will be the ones benefiting from home comforts, however, as they prepare to play each of their three home games at Wembley, which will also host the semis and the final.

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire doesn’t look likely to feature in the opener as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury, though England’s depth of options still makes them the envy of many teams in contention. The fact Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish isn’t considered a certain starter speaks of their riches in midfield, but then that pressure to play ‘the right team’ is part of the burden on Southgate:

More than a decade has passed since England last secured back-to-back wins over the Vatreni, and starting off with a win here is but the tip of their Euro iceberg. Whichever team wins Group D has the unenviable honor of facing the runners-up from Group F, which is something of a toss-up between world champions France, Portugal and Germany. Croatia captain Luka Modric will add to his national team record of 138 caps this summer, with Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic (101) being the other centurion at Dalic’s disposal.
