Team News: England Under-21s unchanged in Croatia

Gareth Southgate keeps faith with the same England Under-21s starting lineup in Vinkovci that beat their Croatian counterparts last week.

England Under-21s manager Gareth Southgate has named an unchanged starting lineup for this evening's encounter in Croatia.

The 11 players that take to the pitch in Vinkovci all featured from the beginning during the 2-1 victory in the first leg between the two nations at Molineux on Friday night.

It means that Harry Kane and Saido Berahino will continue their partnership up front, with Nathan Redmond offering support from a wide role.

Meanwhile, the home side have included Barcelona's 18-year-old Alen Halilovic within their midfield.

Croatia U21: Livakovic; Milic, Datkovic, Mitrovic, Bradaric; Pasalic, Milos, Halilovic, Pjaca; Rebic, Livaja

England U21: Butland; Dier, Gibson, Moore, Shaw; Hughes, Forster-Caskey, Carroll, Redmond; Kane, Berahino
