Croatia manager Zlatko Dalic has chosen his XI to take on Scotland this evening as the likes of Luka Modric and Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic are selected.

Dalic’s side meet Scotland in the final Group D match at Euro 2020. It’s a winner takes-all clash as a win for either side would take them into the knockout rounds, Dalic selecting Croatian legend Modric and Chelsea man Kovacic while Rangers’ Borna Barisic misses out.

Dalic said of the game at the home of Scottish football: “We are at a real disadvantage without our fans because with them we’re way stronger, way better, and I’d say this is not really fair. Nonetheless we are a really motivated team but we see the Scottish team as very good as well.

“We won’t repeat the first half against the Czech Republic when we wasted so much energy. We have to change approach, be more patient, build our attack, because we have the quality.”

 

Here is Croatia’s full XI v Scotland.
