Croatia are the quintessential underdogs turned overachievers. Now Zlatko Dalic's intrepid troops have emerged from their World Cup final loss three years ago amongst a generational sea change. The question is whether Croatia's old guard can show the new boys how it's done.
Croatia will be hoping to do one better this time round
It's been a topsy turvy few years for Croatia fans. They still believe in their team but their fortunes as of late have been difficult to say the least. Topping their Euro qualifying group gave way to a miserable Nations League campaign.
Beaten, battered but reinvigorated
Now the Croats are looking back on track and just in time for this summer's tournament. It provides a chance to renew rivalry with the English in the hopes of slipping out of the group unscathed into the knockout stage.
- Coach: Zlatko Dalic
- Road to Euro 2021: Winners Group E
- Top goalscorer in qualifying: Bruno Petkovic (4 goals)
- Total Euros appearances: 5
- Best Euros finish: Quarter finals 1996 & 2008
- World ranking: 14
How will Croatia line up?
Dalic remains as coach of Croatia from the World Cup, so does captain Luka Modric and a whole host of other stand out names such as Ante Rebic, Marcelo Brozovic, Sime Vrsaljko and Mateo Kovacic. Mandukic and Rakitic have since retired.
Through injuries to key players amidst retirements, the manager has sought to blood in a new wave of international starlets, watch out for Nikola Vlasic in particular.
Dalic has tampered with formations lately, moving between a 4-3-3 to a 4-2-3-1. He is likely to favour a solid back four, but with a number of exciting attacking options he is at liberty to change front formation at will.
What are Croatia's chances?
Croatia's chances of getting out of the group relatively easily should be quite favourable if they can get a consistent line up outside of injury while tapping into the form that saw them top their Euro qualifying group. It will be suprising but not shocking if it doesn't click. Expect them to finish either first or second and get to the quarter finals at least.

Czech Republic 🇨🇿
Czech Republic have qualified for every European Championships since they gained independence, a run stretching back to Euro '96. Fast forward 25 years and unfortunately they are a side that lack the flair, invention and excitement of that standout vintage.
The Czechs have pretty decent although not outstanding form heading into Euro 2021. They tend to deal in absolutes, only registering one draw across Euro qualifying and more recent matches.
Manager Jaroslav Silhavy and his team can be got to though. Scotland in particular will take solace in the fact that they've already got the better of them as have neighbours Wales.
- Coach: Jaroslav Silhavy
- Road to Euro 2021: 2nd place Group A
- Top goalscorer in qualifying: Patrik Schick (4 goals)
- Total Euros appearances: 6
- Best Euros finish: Runners up 1996
- World ranking: 40
How will Czech Republic line up?
Jaroslav Silhavy knows what he's working with in his national outfit. He favours a 4-2-3-1 formation that provides the chance for stability under pressure and it either generally tends to work or it really doesn't.
Their squad is punctuated by West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek and a spate of players who feature for middling sides across Europe. Stability is the essence of midfield and creativity tends to be at a loose end. If the Czechs take three points it will be sparingly.
What are the Czech Republic's chances?
The Czechs can certainly do a job but home fixtures will favour both England and Scotland. If Croatia decide to turn it on the Czechs will definitely struggle. If they stay tight and take their chances they would do a good job to finish second. They will struggle against bigger and better opposition.

What is there to say about England that everyone doesn't already know? They are perennial underachievers that always have standout talent plying their trade in Europe's toughest league. They've also favourites alongside World Cup winners France.
The Three Lions are looking to add to a slim trophy haul
Gareth Southgate has brought stability and a refreshing common sense largely built on meritocracy to the England camp. He led the Three Lions to their best finish since 1990 three years ago in Russia.
It's coming home whether England win it or not
Since then England have continued to perform well in qualifying but still tend to crumble under pressure. Two unsuccessful Nations League campaigns they were favourites to win and Croatia semi final still seared into the memory.
If Southgate can get his tactics right England could prove to be steamrollers at Euro 2021.
- Coach: Gareth Southgate
- Road to Euro 2021: Winners Group A
- Top goalscorer in qualifying: Harry Kane (12 goals)
- Total Euros appearances: 9
- Best Euros finish: Third place 1968
- World ranking: 4
How will England line up?
It starts and ends with England captain fantastic and MBE Harry Kane. Who lines up behind him is one of the toughest selection questions Southgate has ahead of him. Mason Mount, Jack Grealish, Phil Foden, Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling - wow.
Defensive mainstay and Manchester United captain Harry Maguire will be fighting injury but is named in the squad. England will look to use terrific attacking intent on the flanks with the likes of Luke Shaw, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ben Chilwell all going to the Euros.
Southgate is likely to use a favoured 4-3-3 can maximise attacking options across the pitch although some outlets think he will lad with a 3-5-2 in the opening match against Croatia.
What are England's chances?
England are favourites for a reason. Combine the talent they across all areas, especially going forward and they could be a real threat to anyone this tournament. That's all dependent on if it clicks and they can fight their fear when it comes to the big games. If they can do that they will probably win it but that's a big if.

Scotland have qualified for their first major tournament since the turn of the century which is something to shout about in itself. But the Scots won't be happy being also rans, especially considering they're drawn in a group with bitter rivals England.
Qualifying through the back door via the Nations League, Scotland can be considered one of the weaker teams at the Euros this summer. The draw could've been much worse and they will fancy their chances getting out of this group, especially with a potential third place finish up for grabs.
Hampden Park brings vital home advantage
Recent form has been favourable though not electrifying. Games tend to be tight and if Scotland can stifle opposition it will be to their advantage.
- Coach: Gordon Strachan
- Road to Euro 2021: Playoff through the Nations League
- Top goalscorer in qualifying: John McGinn (7 goals)
- Total Euros appearances: 3
- Best Euros finish: Group stage
- World ranking: 44
How will Scotland line up?
Gordon Strachan has plenty of managerial experience and has making his Scotland side a dour but tough team to beat. There is stand out talent here but scattered inconsistently across the pitch.
The likes of Manchester United's Scott McTominay in central midfield is a powerful prospect while Chelsea's Billy Gilmour and Liverpool's Andrew Robertson provide a welcome flair that is bereft in the forward line. Still John McGinn bagged seven in qualifying.
Expect Strachan to line them up with plenty of bodies in defence and midfield, although he has most recently used three at the back with two forwards supporting key striking options.
What are Scotland's chances?
If Scotland make it through the group into the round of 16 it will be a massive achievement. If they can beat the English they will be dancing in the streets. If they can do both it will be a fantastic summer. Group D has two flare teams (England and Croatia) and two functional teams who lack goals but look to create advantage through tension (Czech Republic and Scotland). Scotland need to beat the Czechs and home advantage could spring it for them.
