Ivan Rakitic says he has "enormous respect" for England ahead of their World Cup semi-final rematch in the Nations League.

At first the midfielder was considered a doubt for the match against England but it's been decided by the player, Croatia and FC Barcelona that it'd be best for him to return to Barcelona so he can undergo tests.

England and Croatia played out a goalless draw earlier in their Nations League group but relegation and a place in the tournament's finals are on the line at Wembley on Sunday. Rakitic looked anxious as he left the stadium knowing his injury might be serious.

Croatia's victory over Spain on Thursday night - while England were bidding farewell to Wayne Rooney with a 3-0 win over US - means that just two points separate the three teams with only Sunday's match remaining. I think there's been periods in both of those matches where each team has the upper hand.

So the equation is fairly simple for Zlatko Dalić and the Croatian team, beat England and a semi-final spot is assured.

Rooney: It was probably for the best that I didn't score!

"At the moment, Croatia have that advantage that they beat us in extra-time in the semi-final". It's a great opportunity for these players to go that next step. "With a little bit of luck we got the second goal with a headed clearance that falls right to Mario Mandzukic".

'Tomorrow we will play how we know we can play.
