Euro 2020- England beat Croatia 1-0: Raheem Sterling breaks deadlock to hand England first-ever win in Euro opening game

England vs Croatia Highlights: England started incredibly well, and could’ve scored several early on, especially when Foden hit the post. Croatia slowly came back into the game, passed the ball around rather well, but they lacked a potent threat up front. Jordan Pickford really didn’t have a lot to do in the England goal.

Sterling’s goal was well deserved, as he was one of the brightest players for England on the day. England, naturally, couldn’t keep up their early tempo, and in the second half they sat back and allowed Croatia at have the ball, but they kept Modric, Brozovic and co. at arms length.

There will be bigger tests for England, but off to a good start.
