17' Kane, the sixth player to captain England at both the Euros and a World Cup, gets on the end of Trippier's chipped free-kick to nod towards goal. The England striker was just offside in the buildup though.
16' Sterling finds Mount's run. Mount holds the ball up near England's left corner-flag and flings a cross into the box that Croatia head away. England get a free-kick as Phillips is tripped by Kovacic shortly after muscling Brozovic over.
15' England are playing what looks more like a 4-3-3 than a 4-2-3-1 with Phillips venturing high up the pitch and Rice dropping deep to help his centre-backs out. The line-up looks surprisingly well-balanced so far.
13' Croatia get their first real spell on the ball. England haven't allowed the visitors to breathe yet. Stones wins his aerial duel with Rebic and England are back on the attack.
11' Foden checks onto his left foot again and this time lays off to Mount. England end up losing the ball but show brilliant pressure to earn a throw-in. The hosts look highly motivated.
10' Phillips floats a pass out wide to Walker who's unable to get the ball under proper control. The partisan home crowd groan in disappointment.
9' Caleta-Car sticks a foot out to intercept Sterling's run to the left of the box. England get the first corner of the game. It's floated in and Phillips' volley from outside the box is tipped aside by Croatia's goalkeeper Livakovic.
7' Croatia break upfield and Rebic shoots from distance, forcing Pickford to make a routine save. This game has started with a welcome openness.
6' Foden hits the post! What a start to Euro 2020 that nearly was for the England midfielder! The Manchester City man, sporting a new blonde hairstyle, receives a pass from Sterling to cut inside onto his favoured left foot and strikes the bottom of the left-hand post. The ball ricochets out and Croatia hurriedly clear.
5' Croatia pop the ball around in front of England's box. Modric tries to weave his way through and the referee gives a free-kick for accidentally blocking the ball. Croatia achieve little with it.
3' England start the game on the front foot, giving away a free-kick as Sterling loses possession and checks the run of Perisic.
1' The Italian referee Daniele Orsato blows his whistle and we're underway here at a very warm Wembley!
The 22,500 fans at Wembley welcome the players out onto the pitch who stand for their respective national anthems. England will play in all-white, Croatia in all-black. England's players take the knee to protest racism. The reception, like last time, is mixed.
This game will be a test of England's promise. England have never won their opening game at a European Championship tournament, while Croatia are unbeaten in their five Euro openers. In fact, Croatia have lost just two of their last 11 games at the Euros, excluding penalty shoot-outs. England have never lost at Wembley in a major tournament though. Will home advantage help the Three Lions get off to a winning start?
Southgate selects a cautious England team for this first group game with Mings, Phillips, Rice, Mount and Foden making their tournament debuts. Grealish, England's brightest player in the pre-tournament friendlies, starts on the bench. Zlatko Dalic's Croatia look an experienced side. Their line-up, like England's, features six players which started in the 2018 World Cup semi-final. Left-back Gvardiol becomes the first teenager to feature in a tournament match for Croatia.
SUBS: Milan Badelj, Bruno Petkovic, Josip Juranovic, Mario Pasalic, Mile Skoric, Luka Ivanusec, Nikola Vlasic, Ante Budimir, Lovre Kalinic, Domagoj Bradaric, Simon Sluga, Josip Brekalo.
CROATIA (4-3-3): Dominik Livakovic; Sime Vrsaljko, Domagoj Vida, Duje Caleta-Car, Josko Gvardiol; Luka Modric (c). Marcelo Brozovic, Mateo Kovacic; Andrej Kramaric, Ante Rebic, Ivan Perisic.
SUBS: Jordan Henderson, Reece James, Bukayo Saka, Jack Grealish, Dean Henderson, Jude Bellingham, Conor Coady, Ben White, Sam Johnstone, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw.
ENGLAND (4-2-3-1): Jordan Pickford; Kyle Walker, John Stones, Tyrone Mings, Kieran Trippier; Kalvin Phillips, Declan Rice; Phil Foden, Mason Mount, Raheem Sterling; Harry Kane (c).
Croatia were victorious in that World Cup semi-final match, of course, and many of their latest golden generation remain as they take part in their fifth European Championship in a row. The Central Europeans have lost to the eventual winner in three of their last four major tournaments. It'll take a team of similar calibre to dispatch them again.
Three years on from meeting in the 2018 FIFA World Cup semi-finals, England and Croatia meet again. England play hosts on their 10th European Championship appearance, with no side playing more games in this tournament without making the final. Gareth Southgate and his young Three Lions will be dreaming that this will finally be England's year.
