England's fate in the UEFA Nations League is in their own hands.

The Three Lions host Croatia at Wembley tomorrow afternoon, with a win ensuring them of promotion.

If they lose to Zlatko Dalic's side, they will be relegated - it really is all on the line.

Both sides go into the game on the back of victories on Thursday. England beat the USA 3-0 in a friendly, while Croatia defeated Spain 3-2 in a thrilling encounter.

However, Croatia's victory was slightly marred by Dejan Lovren's unnecessary social media activity after the game.

The Liverpool centre-back bragged about elbowing Sergio Ramos and then fired a warning at England claiming they 'are afraid' of Croatia.

England captain Harry Kane - who didn't play against the USA - was asked about Lovren's activity in his latest press conference.

When asked about Lovren’s warning to England, Kane said: "I don’t think it’s a threat, I just think they are going to want to win the match as much as we are.

"Like I touched on earlier, I think it’s important we don’t get caught up in anything surrounding the game and just focus on our job and what we need to do.

"We know we’re more than capable of winning the game if we get everything right, so it’s down to us to go and do that."

Kane was then asked for his opinion on Lovren and Ramos' rivalry, something which has been brewing ever since the Champions League final.

The Tottenham striker said: "That’s not for me to compare them two. Obviously I think Ramos, his record speaks for himself, the amount of trophies he’s won, the amount of big games he’s played.

"Of course Lovren is another fantastic defender and I look forward to going up against him tomorrow. It’s a matter of opinion, obviously he has his opinion – some players are more outspoken than others, but from my point of view it’s not to judge them but focus on myself and my team."

Fair play, Harry.

Kane has got the better of Lovren on a few occasions during Spurs vs Liverpool games and England fans will be hoping he can reproduce those performances tomorrow.
