Rose, McCarthy withdraw from England squad

That heartbreaking loss won't be erased by a victory in Friday's Nations League clash in Rijeka, but it would at least prove to England manager Southgate that his youthful team are continuing to develop.

"It is a shame for the travelling fans and those who have not missed a game for decades", Southgate said.

"I would agree with Luka that we felt a little underestimated by the English media, not the head coach or the players", he said.

"We want to feel better about ourselves", he said. "They'd like to have the encouragement of an incredibly passionate support".

England are aiming to avenge defeat by their hosts in the World Cup semi-final just 93 days ago.

The crowd will be officially registered as zero but there are likely to be about 500 people in the stadium, with about 150 media expected and a maximum of 75 people per team delegation, including the players.

There will also be a maximum of 75 Uefa representatives, as well as Uefa partners holding complimentary VIP tickets. "Whether it's an advantage, though, who knows?"

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 will be without Tottenham left-back Rose and Southampton goalkeeper McCarthy for those games after withdrawing from the squad on Thursday due to the "minor injuries" they arrived with.

Southgate has selected two teenagers - Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho and Chelsea's Mason Mount, now on loan at Derby - in his squad, while Leicester's James Maddison has been called up for the first time.

Modric had earlier said that the perceived disrespect the Croatia players felt was an additional incentive to succeed in the semi-final.

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

"It's not experimentation, it's players we believe in. It's hard to play without fans but it is what it is and we need to adapt to that".

"There's nobody in the squad that's here that we were not thinking of putting into the team. They didn't show enough appreciation and it gave us extra motivation".

"I can tell you the line-up: Livakovic in goal, Lovren and Vida at the back, Jedvaj and Pivaric at full-back".
