Sancho's England debut impresses Kane and Dier

He has since failed to score in England matches against Spain, Switzerland and Croatia, though he has scored six times for Tottenham, including five times in the Premier League. The most important thing for the team is we create chances, look unsafe, and I have faith the players who didn't score will score.

England, by far the noisier team, adjusted to these eerie surroundings better than the home side - denied their noisy, passionate support because of Uefa's disciplinary measures.

England had another chance to put in a threatening delivery soon afterwards when Harry Kane was fouled, but Chilwell's pass was too long for John Stones.

Just 93 days after the Three Lions lost to Zlatko Dalic's men in the World Cup semi-finals, the countries met in surroundings that could scarcely have been more different to July's huge encounter at the packed Luzhniki.

Chants of "God Save the Queen" from England supporters who had gathered outside the ground seemed to lift Gareth Southgate's side after the break but the woodwork and some awful finishing by Rashford denied them a goal.

And that was about it. Gareth Southgate, though, still managed to find positives from the game and felt his side should have won.

And six minutes after the break Kane rose highest to a Henderson free-kick only to see his looping header come back off the crossbar.

Spalletti will have most of his players back this week and be set to prepare the team for the upcoming games against Milan and Barcelona in the Champions League. We just have to make sure we finish the chances.

Jordan Pickford was another loud presence, with the England goalkeeper continually urging his teammates on from the other end of the pitch, but by contrast, the Croatia players were much quieter; perhaps they knew what each other was doing in the first place, without having to shout all the time.

Mateo Kovacic became the second player booked for a bad challenge on Marcus Rashford, but England failed to ask any questions with their dead ball delivery.

Rashford got clear again moments later but saw his side-footed strike saved by Dominik Livakovic as England stepped up the tempo and Tin Jedvaj was booked for a late lunge on Dier. "I don't think my game has dipped".

Southgate's decision to call up the likes of Jadon Sancho, Mason Mount and James Maddison, despite their age and lack of experience, garnered criticism from some.

"I could hear the noise", said England boss Gareth Southgate.
