France v Croatia Live Commentary & Result, 08/09/2020, UEFA Nations League

Meanwhile Croatia suffered an opening game defeat against Portugal, losing 4-1, to leave them bottom of Group C. They finished bottom of their group in the previous edition of the Nations League, whilst France finished joint top with the Netherlands in their group, but the Dutch qualified for the finals on their head-to-head goal difference.

France secured a 1-0 victory over Sweden in their opening Nations League goal, thanks to a strike from Kylian Mbappe. However, the striker is now unavailable after testing positive for Covid-19 yesterday. This is also the first meeting between the two sides since the 2018 World Cup Final, which France won 4-2, to clinch their second World Cup title.

Hello and welcome to our LIVE match commentary of the Group C Nations League clash between France and Croatia at the Stade de France in Paris.
