Harry Kane says he is not concerned about his England goal drought

John Stones and Gareth Southgate on the pitch

However, both did start for England in their Uefa Nations League game against Croatia on Friday evening, as Gareth Southgate opted for a new formation, moving away from the 3-5-2 he used in Russian Federation and deploying a 4-3-3.

And that was about it. Gareth Southgate, though, still managed to find positives from the game and felt his side should have won.

England had another chance to put in a threatening delivery soon afterwards when Harry Kane was fouled, but Chilwell's pass was too long for John Stones.

Southgate would have been excused for feeling envious when he saw Croatia's midfield, containing the likes of Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic.

The only chance in the first half fell to Dier, who glanced his header against the far post after a Jordan Henderson corner. I've always said Paul Scholes is the best player I've ever played with and most players who've played with him say the same - in fact, a lot of the players who've played against him say the same.

Spalletti will have most of his players back this week and be set to prepare the team for the upcoming games against Milan and Barcelona in the Champions League.

In front of the empty stands, Marcus Rashford missed two glorious chances to exact England a small measure of revenge for missing out on the World Cup final to Croatia 93 days ago in Moscow.

"This feels like a game we should have won but I was really pleased with the way we played".

"From a choice between Henderson or Dier, after the World Cup everyone knows who by far is the best one", he told Sky Sports' The Debate.

Ross Barkley went down in the area as Rebic challenged but the referee waved play on, and Walker then found Rashford but, with just the keeper to beat, the forward scuffed his finish. "A couple of fans got up on the hill, but once the game started it was in the back of our minds".

Harry Kane has defended his recent form and insisted his all-round game has not dipped in the aftermath of a busy summer at the World Cup and early return to pre-season training, with the England captain declaring himself fit and eager to lead the side out against Spain. We could easily hear them on the hill.

Rashford got clear again moments later but saw his side-footed strike saved by Dominik Livakovic as England stepped up the tempo and Tin Jedvaj was booked for a late lunge on Dier. With England having good chances to beat the side that knocked them out in Russia, Southgate was happy with how his players handled their opponents and the freaky circumstances of an empty ground.
