Barcelona midfielder Busquets frustrated as Croatia defeat Spain

Barcelona midfielder Busquets frustrated as Croatia defeat Spain”

Bayer Leverkusen striker Tin Jedvaj, who scored the victor against Spain in Zagreb on Thursday night, said: 'England will have motivation to beat us because we won in Russian Federation against them and they will try to take some revenge - 100 per cent.

Jedvaj emerged as Croatia's hero with his first two global goals, sending the home crowd into raptures with his second when he swept home a rebound after Spain had twice come from behind.

Spain were left with virtually no time to respond, though, when left-back Jedvaj struck again in stoppage time. In the second half they dropped their level physically and we had a lot of chances, above all in the six yard box.

Croatia midfielder Ivan Rakitic will miss the winner-takes-all Nations League game against England at Wembley on Sunday due to injury, manager Zlatko Dalic said on Friday.

"In the first goal we made a mistake, the second came from set pieces and in the end they were fortunate".

Croatia, the 2018 World Cup runner-up, has struggled since its success in Russian Federation and sits in last place with one point-though it could still top the group if it beats Spain and then England on Sunday.

"We knew we were in a group with two of the best teams in the world but I'm not anxious about my team".

"I would love to qualify for the final four, but our top objective is the European Championships", he said.

"I worry about the possible things that we have to adjust", he continued.

"As a group, we all want to win every game we play and if we win every game we play, that will take us to the Nations League semi-finals and final".

"We will find a solution and we are going to Wembley to enjoy football". "The best of this new-look team is yet to come".
