Croatia, bolstered by full international Alen Halilović, went into the match trailing 1-2 on aggregate from the first leg in the UK, and quickly went a goal down at home in the return leg. A Marko Livaja equalizer gave Croatia hope, but England snatched a winner late in the match to win on aggregate 4-2 and advance to next year’s finals in the Czech Republic.
