  • Gareth Southgate has sent his squad footage of Barcelona's match against Las Palmas in an empty Nou Camp

England take on Croatia in Rijeka on Friday night just 93 days on from last-four heartbreak in Russian Federation as Dalic oversaw a 2-1 extra-time victory.

Southgate's side were beaten by Croatia in Russian Federation earlier this year when they stood on the cusp of their first World Cup final appearance since 1966.

Ahead of their rematch in the Nations League on Friday, the midfielder again reiterated his comments, though he made certain to clarify he was not talking about the England team or their coaches, but rather the media and fans.

"I am sure Croatia feel the same".

"We felt a bit disrespected, not appreciated as much as we deserve", said the 33-year-old.

"When I said that after the game, it wasn't meant to be the players or the head coach but more in regards to the media and some commentary we could read or watch", he said.

Modric's claims were echoed by Croatia head coach Zlatko Dalic, who added: "I would agree with Luka that we felt a little underestimated by the English media, not the head coach or the players".

Three months after facing one another in the World Cup semi-finals, the Three Lions travel to Rijeka before heading onto an arguably even tougher assignment against Spain. That is how we felt. Is that a problem for England? "That's something you need to answer for yourself and analyse".

Federer forced to battle again on way to Shanghai quarters
Fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany also advanced to the quarterfinals by pasting Alex de Minaur of Australia 6-1, 6-4. Open last month and looked in complete control as he won 34 of 40 points on his first-serve to book a place in the last 16.

"There's always a level of respect between the teams".

Spain showed scant respect for the team beaten by France in the World Cup final with a stunning 6-0 demolition of Dalic's side, three days after beating England at Wembley.

The youngster impressed for Gareth Southgate's side last month, scoring in games against Spain and Switzerland.

Pickford was one of many players to star for England in the World Cup before they suffered semi-final heartbreak at the hands of Croatia.

Croatia were punished after a swastika was marked on their pitch before a Euro 2016 home qualifier against Italy.

Southgate said: "We do it every day of our lives - playing football in front of a handful of people watching - so it's not totally unique, but in a match situation it's different. It's hard to play without fans but it is what it is and we need to adapt to that".

"But it's important for us, we want to play as well as possible to achieve a good result".
