UEFA Nations League A Group 4

  • England 2 - 1 Croatia

  • England qualified for the Nations League Finals in June 2019 by coming from behind to beat Croatia. Not only was the 2-1 win a modicum of revenge for the World Cup 2018 semi-final defeat it also consigned Croatia to relegation to League B. Such were the margins in the three team group that Spain started the afternoon in pole position but by the 57th minute, Andrej Kramarić had put Croatia potentially into the finals until Lingard and Kane turned the game on it's head and sent England through.
    England will also be spared a five team qualifying group for Euro 2020 - the extra two ties are played at the same time as next June's finals - and also are guaranteed a play-off place for Euro 2020 should they fail to qualify. A fine end to 2018 for England and Gareth Southgate.

Rooney tears but youngsters steal the limelight.

  • England 3 - 0 USA

  • Wayne Rooney left the field in tears after his emotional 120th and final cap but it was the new blood on show that provided the spark needed to beat a very ordinary US side. One of England's finest players might have played his last match but goals from Lingard, Alexander-Arnold and debutant Wilson deftly displayed the new guard are willing and very able to take up the reigns.

England up to fifth in October World Rankings

  • From the absurd to the ridiculous

  • England will climb one spot to fifth in the new FIFA World Rankings when they are published later this month. After an eerie experience in Rijeka, England went to Seville with low expectations and yet managed to pull off a thrilling win which can only be described as one of the best away displays in the modern era of English international football.
    The difference between the two games couldn't have been starker. In Croatia there was a lot missing - besides the crowd - with Marcus Rashford's shooting boots the most obvious. In Seville, it was Spain's turn to go missing with the Three Lions rampant in the first half. Normal service was resumed for the second with all ten of the Spanish outfield players encamped outside of England's penalty area, but the English dug in for a famous and overdue win in Spain. Not since the days of Gary Lineker, some 31 years ago, had England scored in Spain, let alone won.
    England have one more match in UEFA's Nation League A Group 4 - against Croatia next month. Prior to that, whilst England will be playing the United States, Croatia take on Spain. A Spanish win will seal the group and they will proceed to the finals next Summer. Any other result and England will pip them to it if they beat Croatia at Wembley three days later.
    Barring a calamitous repeat of the 'Wally with the brolly' next month, have England done enough to avoid relegation from League A and be seeded for the Euro 2020 qualifying draw in December? We shall see...

UEFA Nations League A Group 4

  • Spain 2 - 3 England

  • An awesome display of counter-attacking football see England 3-0 up at half time with goals from Rashford either side of a Sterling brace. England hold on despite a Spanish fightback with Sergio Ramos scoring with the last kick of the game.
    A marvellous win to rank with other modern competitive away victories such as 4-1 in Croatia and 5-1 in Germny.
