England was looking at UEFA Nations League relegation by the time Gareth Southgate substituted Fabian Delph to bring on Jesse Lingard in the 73rd minute. It was a great move because five minutes later, he tapped in the equalizer.
The Manchester United attacker cleared a Croatian shot on the line few minutes later to keep his side level. In the 85th minute, Harry Kane scored the winner. Lingard impact was immense in this game. Three Lions will play for the trophy next year in Portugal. Maybe this time ‘It is indeed coming home’.

Croatia pulled off a miracle last week to beat Spain 3-2 in front of the home fans. This looked totally unlikely when Sergio Ramos scored a penalty to level the score in the 78th minute for the second time. However, Bayer Leverkusen full-back Tin Jedvaj had other ideas.
The 22-year-old had scored to put his side ahead in the 69th minute but the fans thought he was just lucky. In the 93rd minute, he scored the winner to make sure they will never forget him.
1. Haris Seferovic- Hat-trick
Belgium was 2-0 up in 17 minutes against Switzerland in Lucerne on Sunday night. However, what happened after that was totally unexpected. The Red Devils conceded a penalty and a few minutes later Shaqiri assisted Haris Seferovic who made no mistake to make it 2-2.
The home side needed at least a 2-0 win to book a place in 2019 Nations League semi-finals. They continued pushing hard and before half-time, Seferovic got his second to make it 3-2. Roberto Martinez was expecting a response in the second half but the home team was not giving his team a breathing space. It was 4-2 in the 62nd minute and then 5-2 in the 84th minute.
Eden Hazard was looking tired but the number one FIFA ranked team missed their top scorer Romelu Lukaku. Switzerland will join England and Portugal in next year semi-finals set to be held in Lisbon for a chance to win a trophy.
