After a 2-1 loss to England on Friday, the Croatia U-21’s face the Three Lions again in Vinkovci Tuesday night. The Croatians will need a victory in the second match of their Euro 2015 playoff or their run will be over. With an away goal in England already to their name, all Croatia would need is a 1-0 win to get them into the 8-team tournament next summer.
Marko Livaja opened up the scoring in the 13th minute in the opening match, but a 58th minute Harry Kane equalizer and an 85th minute Saido Berahino penalty would get the job done for the English. If Croatia can get past England and make it out of group stage at Euro 2015, they would qualify Croatia for the summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil for the first time ever.
Alen Halilović and Mateo Kovačić will not be available for this match.
