Spain take on Croatia in a crunch UEFA Nations League clash tonight that could have ramifications for England.

A tame first half was followed by a frantic second as Croatia were twice pegged back by a rampant Spain side, Dani Ceballos levelling after Andrej Kramaric's opener, before a Sergio Ramos penalty cancelled out Jedvaj's first worldwide goal.

Croatia's win came two months after it was crushed 6-0 by Spain, its worst ever loss, in Seville.

Tin Jedvaj headed Croatia ahead from Luka Modric's brilliant cross but Sergio Ramos equalise from the penalty spot after Sime Vrsjalko was penalised harshly for handball. England and Croatia have four points before they meet at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

Spain appeared to be getting close to another goal when Croatia went forward in stoppage time in one final push that culminated in Jedvaj's last-gasp goal.

Spain still lead Group 4 in League A but, after Tin Jedvaj's double , they will be relying on a draw in the game between England and Croatia on Sunday to qualify. "I gave my best and this means a lot for us", the 22-year-old Jedvaj, a defender who plays for German club Bayer Leverkusen, said after scoring his first worldwide goals.

But Jedvaj's late victor now means victory at Wembley over England, who they beat 2-1 in the World Cup semifinals, would put them in the final phase. "We're not out of this hard group yet".

"I would love to qualify for the final four, but our top objective is the European Championships", he said.

The visitors had the upper hand early in the second half but fell behind after a calamitous error by Sergi Roberto, who gave the ball away to Ivan Perisic and the winger released Kramaric to beat David De Gea with a crisp finish from eight metres.
