Euro Countdown: Croatia Draw Opening Warm-Up

Last updated : 01 June 2021 By Three Lions

England's opening Euro 2020 opponents Croatia were held 1-1 by Armenia on Tuesday, just under two weeks before they meet Gareth Southgate's side at Wembley.

Ivan Perisic scored on his 100th international appearance while captain Luka Modric played the first-half of the game in Velika Gorica.

The Uefa report on the match concluded that coach Zlatko Dalic may have been slightly disappointed by the performance of some of his fringe players but more certain of his starting XI for yet another important meeting with England.

Croatia complete their preparations on Sunday when they meet strongly-fancied Belgium in a friendly.

Tuesday also saw finalists Poland and Russia play out a 1-1 draw in their warm-up match.
