Spain had ‘unfair’ loss to Croatia in UEFA Nations League – Luis Enrique

Croatia gained a dramatic late winner to beat Spain in the Nations League – a result which keeps alive England’s hopes of winning the tournament.

It means all three countries can finish top of Group A4, with England taking on Croatia in the last match on Sunday.

Two goals from Tin Jedvaj, including one in the 93rd minute, gave the World Cup finalists the victory in Zagreb.

Andrej Kramaric scored the hosts’ opener, with Spain’s goals coming from Dani Ceballos and Sergio Ramos.

Whoever wins at Wembley will finish top of the group and advance to June’s finals, to have a chance of becoming Nations League champions and also to earn a place at Euro 2020.

However, if Sunday’s game ends in a draw, then Spain will finish top.

A goalless draw on Sunday would mean England finish second, with Croatia relegated. A score draw, however, would take Croatia above England on the head-to-head record – by virtue of having scored more away goals in the matches between the sides – and drop the Three Lions into the second tier.
