England manager Gareth Southgate waved away ideas Croatia will be afraid of playing his team at Wembley in their opening game at Euro 2020 after they came out in the same group at Saturday’s draw in Bucharest. England Vs Croatia Tickets can be grabbed from our global event ticket sales market.
The teams will face off on June 14 in Group D in what is likely to be an essential game in determining who tops the section which will also include the Czech Republic and a play-off winner.
Southgate was told Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic feared the view of going to Wembley right at the beginning of the Euro 2020 tournament with London one of 12 European cities chosen to host matches. I think he’s been psychologically economical with the truth there was Southgate’s response.
However, the most important recent meeting of the nations came in the 2018 World Cup semi-final in Moscow when Croatia won 2-1 in extra time. Euro 2020 Fans from all over the world can buy Group D Euro 2020 Tickets online.
I think in the last game in their midfield they left (Chelsea’s Mateo) Kovacic on the bench which tells you a little bit about the quality of the players that they have and it’s quite an interesting contrast really.
They have vastly experienced player’s right throughout the team who have played big matches. We are at the other end of the scale very beginning a lot of energy but unmoving learning and improving.
Southgate was also asked if the match offered a real chance to exact revenge for that hurting World Cup exit as England missed out on a first major Euro 2020 tournament final since 1966. England Vs Czech Republic Tickets can be grabbed from our global event ticket sales market.
I think you can never make up for losing in a World Cup semi-final, unfortunately. We felt that after the Nations League. It was great to win that game but it didn’t in any way redress it if I was the Croatians I know which game I’d rather have won so I consider that will be long gone but it is a really striking fixture for everybody.
England’s second game will be on June 19 against a team to arise from the play-offs next March. They will then have a final home group game against another familiar challenger in the Czechs whom they trounced 5-0 at Wembley in qualifying but lost to 2-1 in Prague.
Euro 2020 tournament after missing a penalty
They are two teams who we have had really good results against and also poor results so it is not a group we can be satisfied with Southgate added. The Czechs will be returning to Wembley the scene of their loss by Germany in the Euro 96 final. England Vs Play-Off Winner Tickets can be grabbed from our global event ticket sales market.
Southgate will also be forever linked to that Euro 2020 tournament after missing a penalty in the semi-final shoot-out loss to the Germans. England is now getting ready to host games at a major Euro 2020 tournament for the first time since then with Wembley also having a last-16 game as well as together semi-finals and the July 12 final.
The tournament was a brilliant experience in ’96, that’s the thing that is in my mind. For the players to practice that for our fans to experience that and for the three group matches to start with is going to be extra special Southgate said.
Win in that game would take them to a Rome quarter-final possibly against Spain. Concluding second in their group may actually be the preferable path. In the end, you want to try and win every game you play and at least have control of your destiny Southgate maintained.
