Croatia and England share a dramatic recent history. Croatia infamously knocked England out of the Euro 2008 qualifiers with two home and away victories. Before England returned the favour beating Croatia twice in the World Cup 2010 qualifiers. Over these four matches the two teams amassed 18 goals. The games included a Theo Walcott hat-trick and a Robinson howler.
Then just over 90 days ago the two met in the World Cup 2018 semi-final, Croatia knocking England out with an extra-time winner.
Now, the dramatic will become the surreal as the two teams meet each other in a behind-closed-doors match on Friday.
The decision was taken by Uefa who are punishing Croatia after a swastika was found on the pitch of a Euro 2016 qualifier.
Since the World Cup Croatia have drawn 1-1 with France and lost 6-0 to a rejuvenated Spain.
England lost 2-1 to Spain and won 1-0 against Switzerland.
