Today at 9:45 p.m. Kyiv's time in Zagreb, at the Maksimir stadium, began a central game day in the UEFA Nations League – between the Croatian national team and the Spanish national team. In September Spain scored six goals Champion of the World in 2018 and defeated him in Elche – 6: 0. Currently, Spain has six points after three games and leads in the A4 group, and Croatia with one point in two game takes the last place.
Given a smaller number of games, the Croaton has a theory opportunity to win even a group. To do this, you need to beat Spain today, and on November 18 in London – England (four points in three games). Accordingly, Luis Enrique wards also need to win, because it can be abolished: England, if it defeats Croatia on November 18, will be higher in face to face meetings.

But do not forget that Croatia in June 2016 in the European Championship is stronger than Spain – 2: 1. In the important games, Modric (I came to the press conference yesterday with the trainer Dalić) come together.
Supporters of supporters will be traditionally core.
