England's rematch with Croatia was the polar opposite of that eventful World Cup semi-final in Moscow.
Kieran Trippier's free-kick, Harry Kane's agonising miss and Mario Mandzukic's late winner created a thrilling footballing spectacle.
However, the meeting behind closed doors at the Stadion HNK Rijeka was as dull as the atmosphere.
Marcus Rashford missed two golden second-half chances, but that was about as good as it got as the game ended 0-0.
There were few moments to shout about across the 90 minutes, but football fans did spot something pretty funny from Liverpool's Jordan Henderson.
After the referee blew for a free-kick on Henderson, the England midfielder made his feelings known to Croatia manager Zlatko Dalic - who was the one appealing for it.
A number of journalists heard Henderson shouting "are you the f**king ref" in the direction of the Croatia boss.
Fair play, Jordan.
The Liverpool skipper's performance was not one of his finest in an England shirt as he lined up next to Eric Dier.
As a duo, they have been heavily criticised by fans in the past for being too defensive and lacking the quality to control the game.
Even against a team with the quality of Croatia, it seems unnecessary to have both in the side, particularly with players like Harry Winks sitting on the bench.
Gareth Southgate's next task will be to try and get a result out in Spain on Wednesday night in what will be their toughest Nations League game yet.
La Roja thrashed Croatia 6-0 in the last international break and beat Wales 4-1 in a friendly on Thursday night.
Henderson will miss the game through suspension, so it is likely Winks will be the one to get the nod in midfield next to Dier and Ross Barkley.
