The most important thing for the team is we create chances, look risky, and I have faith the players who didn't score will score. They had one from a cut-back. We just have to make sure we finish the chances.

"Now I see him in training, it's like he has never been away", the Reds midfielder said. "And tonight we played well".

The Tottenham striker struck the bar against Croatia on Friday and had another effort ruled out for offside, leaving the Golden Boot victor without a goal in six games for his country to equal his worst run of scoreless games at that level.

In a midfield which was sorely lacking any kind of creativity, which is to be expected when you start Eric Dier and Jordan Henderson, Barkley was constantly looking for the forward pass or movement.

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.

According to Tribal Football, Jamie said to Sky Sports: "The way England play, Rashford plays narrow - he's nearly like a striker". It's sad the second and fourth team from the World Cup are playing behind closed doors.

England avoided defeat this time, but any comparisons between the two occasions are utterly futile.

Kane hit the woodwork and also had the ball in the net on Friday night - only to be called offside.

The UEFA Nations League match between Croatia and England will be broadcast on ESPN 2.

England picked up their first Nations League point, and much will now depend on their Wembley meeting with Croatia. "We should have been more ruthless". "So, it's a good challenge for us and an important challenge".

"We're not quite there yet in that aspect, in the way they keep the ball". We have just got to get over the line against these top sides to take that next step.

"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".

"With the young players we have coming through and their positions, having wingers would suit us as well". It did, though, have an impact on the game as a whole, with the home side especially feeling the effects of the muted atmosphere. "He should be really pleased".

"From a choice between Henderson or Dier, after the World Cup everyone knows who by far is the best one", he told Sky Sports' The Debate. The first half was even. Indeed, the only real noise came from those fans high on the hillside, who were rewarded by an acknowledgement from Pickford when they chanted "Jordan, give us a wave!" in the closing stages.

"It was a tough game in Croatia".
