The Nations League match had to be played behind closed doors, however, it proved to be a rather boring affair as both sides earned a point from the game.

'We have got to keep learning it but I thought the team executed it really well.' Southgate also backed captain Harry Kane, who has now gone six games without an global goal.

Tottenham Hotspur's Eric Dier, who has received his fair share of critics, with a number of the supporters claiming that he was a fraud.

"We could easily hear the ones on the hill", said Dier.

Because they had a real lesson in the summer about playing a World Cup semi-final.

Without any fans present as Croatia served the second game of a crowd ban for racist offences by their fans in Euro 2016 qualifying, the instructions from both benches echoed around the eerily empty ground in a tepid first half at the Rijeka stadium. "They were the only ones here".

"He made his decision and we have to respect that and look for other solutions".

Jadon Sancho is the second youngest player ever to play for England in a competitive match.

The game's first shot on target did not arrive until the 37th minute, when Andrej Kramaric failed to truly test Jordan Pickford from the centre of the box.

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

Ross Barkley had strong claims for a penalty waived away on his first worldwide appearance for two-and-a-half years before Rashford was twice presented with golden chances to score for the third straight game for his country. People like Harry Maguire, going into the World Cup, I felt we needed a bit more protection for the defence and the opportunity to get two forwards in the game.

Southgate threw on 18-year-old Jadon Sancho for his global debut 12 minutes from time in search of a victor.
