Croatia hold wasteful England in empty stadium

"While we all endorse the campaign against racism and want to see all that prejudice and bigotry stamped out of the game, the nature of this punishment against the Croatian FA is also punishing the innocent", said Kevin Miles, chief executive of the Football Supporters' Federation in England.

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. To put it simply, England do not create enough chances through their midfield.

The Three Lions were outclassed by Croatia in the semi-final, in large past thanks to the play of midfielders Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic.

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 terrible finishing by Rashford denied them a goal. Gareth Southgate must find a way to coax this goalscoring form out of Sterling in order to help England reach the next level.

The only chance in the first half fell to Dier, who glanced his header against the far post after a Jordan Henderson corner.

"When you set the standards that I've set over the last few years and you fall a little bit below them, people are going to talk", he said.

Seedorf gets first win and Salah injured in Egypt victory
Egypt assistant coach Hany Ramzy has provided an update on the injury of the Pharaohs' star Mohamed Salah . Egypt had used all three of its substitutes and played the last moments of the match with 10 men.

"He did something that none of the rest could do and that's control the tempo of a football match and when we talk about England not controlling a game, that's the thing the likes of Pirlo, Modric, Xabi Alonso and Xavi can do - they're the type of players you need at global level if you want to control games".

A point apiece leaves Spain out in front at the top of Group A4 ahead of Monday's meeting with England in Seville, as they have six points from their first two matches.

"He's great", Kane told Sky Sports.

Jadon Sancho is the second youngest player ever to play for England in a competitive match. "A couple of fans got up on the hill, but once the game started it was in the back of our minds".

Ross Barkley went down in the area as Rebic challenged but the referee waved play on, and Walker then found Rashford but, with just the keeper to beat, the forward scuffed his finish.

Kramaric had another shooting chance but again failed to make clean contact, Stones blocking, and with seconds running out Sancho's cross, after an excellent run down the right, just eluded his colleagues.
