England captain Harry Kane denies form has dipped since World Cup

England captain Harry Kane denies form has dipped since World Cup

The goalless draw in Rijeka secured England and Croatia their first point of the Nations League, though Kane anticipates a far sterner test against Spain.

From the sound of the high fives of England's players echoing around the stadium before kick-off, to the distant voices of visiting supporters somewhere on a hill near the ground asking goalkeeper Jordan Pickford for a wave, this was a surreal evening on the Adriatic coast.

Going into a match with a four-man defence for the first time in a year, which Gareth Southgate hoped would lead to more possession for his side, England offered far more in the early stages of the second period.

Southgate said: "The first half was pretty even but we had a very good chance from a corner, which we probably should have got on the end of".

Kane saw an effort ruled out for offside and seemingly broke the net in the process, leading to a pause in play that saw England fans get a wave from Pickford. "We've just got to make sure we're creating them".

Hornets midfielder Chalobah had to settle for a watching brief from the bench in Rijeka but Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, who left Vicarage Road for Manchester City in 2014, became the second youngest England player to win his first cap in a competitive game behind the legendary Duncan Edwards when he replaced Raheem Sterling in the 78th minute.

What the asking price for LeSean McCoy might be
McCoy was of course drafted by the Eagles in 2009, and spent his first six National Football League seasons there. Ajayi, in his team's loss to Minnesota on Sunday, carried the ball just eight times for 29 yards.

Dejan Lovren was booked for a clumsy tackle on Sterling as the first half petered out, but a much brighter start to the second half nearly brought a goal for either side.

Rashford, boasting goals in back-to-back games for his country, dragged a shot wide and Kane sent a header against the crossbar from his first touch of the ball in the final third.

The England captain has scored seven goals in just nine appearances against the Hammers in his career.

The UEFA Nations League match between Croatia and England will be broadcast on ESPN 2. "We have to keep getting in those situations".

Kramaric sliced wide before Croatia made the night's first change, Perisic making way for Marko Pjaca and the substitute nearly making an instant impact with an effort that curled wide. We know he can have an impact on the game, and he did that when we eventually got the ball to him.

"On another day we would have won 3-0", said Barkley. In the summer we had a system which allowed our players to embed into global football but now they are more experienced.
