A blockbuster clash between England and Croatia is the highlight of day three at Euro 2020.

The pair renew hostilities in London, three years after their World Cup semi-final in Russia where the Croats came out on top.

Attention then turns to Group C, with the Netherlands making their return to the tournament stage against Ukraine.

They follow the pool opener between Austria and North Macedonia, who come into the tournament having pulled off a stunning win away to giants Germany earlier this year.

Group D: England vs Croatia

A barnstorming Group D clash sees England and Croatia play out a repeat of their 2018 World Cup semi-final when they lock horns at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Revenge is on the minds of coach Gareth Southgate and his side, who come into the tournament as one of the favourites to go all the way.

Seven wins from eight and a whopping 37 goals saw the Three Lions breeze through Group A in qualifying, while Croatia negotiated their way to the top of Group E above Wales and Slovakia.

Harry Kane will lead the England line with the likes of Mason Mount, Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling competing for starting places in support.

The opener will likely come too soon for Harry Maguire in defence, while Jordan Henderson remains short of match fitness.

Bruno Petkovic and Andrej Kramaric are battling it out to start up front for the de facto visitors in London.

Probable England Starting XI: Jordan Pickford, Kieran Trippier, John Stones, Tyrone Mings, Luke Shaw, Declan Rice, Kalvin Phillips, Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount, Jack Grealish, Harry Kane.

Probable Croatia Starting XI: Dominik Livakovic, Sime Vrsaljko, Domagoj Vida, Duje Caleta-Car, Borna Barisic, Mateo Kovacic, Marcelo Brozovic, Ante Rebic, Luka Modric, Ivan Perisic, Bruno Petkovic.

Group C: Austria vs North Macedonia

Austria and North Macedonia meet in Bucharest on Sunday, as Group C kicks off at Euro 2020.

There are few secrets between the pair, who came through qualifying Group G behind Poland.

Second spot was enough to see Das Team through to the tournament proper, while their opponents came through the play-offs.

Marko Arnautovic may be kept in reserve on his return to the international set up with the Austrians, while Julian Baumgartlinger and Konrad Laimer are both short of full match fitness coming into the opener.

North Macedonia have lost Ilija Nestorovski from their strike force through injury, increasing the onus on captain, highest appearance maker and top goal scorer, Goran Pandev.

Probable Austria Starting XI: Daniel Bachmann, Stefan Lainer, Aleksandar Dragovic, Martin Hinteregger, Andreas Ulmer, Cristoph Baumgartner, Stefan Ilsanker, Florian Grillitsch, David Alaba, Sasa Kalajdzic, Marcel Sabitzer.

Probable North Macedonia Starting XI: Stole Dimitrievski, Kire Ristevski, Visar Musliu, Darko Velkovski, Stefan Ristovski, Enis Bardhi, Arijan Ademi, Eljif Elmas, Ezgjan Alioski, Goran Pandev, Aleksandar Trajkovski.

Group C: Netherlands vs Ukraine

The Netherlands return to the major tournament stage for the first time since the 2014 Fifa World Cup, kicking off their Euro 2020 campaign against Ukraine in Amsterdam on Sunday.

It’s been a miserable time for the men in orange since that third-placed finish in Brazil, but they’re back in the European Championships for the first time since 2012.

A second-placed qualifying finish behind Germany did the trick for Frank de Boer’s side, who were beaten just once en route to the summer showpiece.

Ukraine topped qualifying Group B in fine style, going unbeaten and pushing reigning European champions Portugal into second place.

The world class presence of Virgil van Dijk is missing for the Dutch thanks to his long-term injury, while Donny van de Beek was also a late withdrawal .

Red hot Memphis Depay leads the attack, while new Paris Saint Germain signing Georginio Wijnaldum takes his place in the midfield engine room.

Coach Andriy Shevchenko has a few things to ponder with his first selection of the competition, with Manchester City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko a candidate at either wing back or more centrally.

Probable Netherlands Starting XI: Maarten Stekelenburg, Jurrien Timber, Stefan de Vrij, Daley Blind, Denzel Dumfries, Marten de Roon, Georginio Wijnaldum, Frenkie de Jong, Owen Wijndal, Wout Weghorst, Memphis Depay.

Probable Ukraine Starting XI: Georgi Bushchan, Illia Zabarnyi, Mykola Matvienko, Vitalii Mykolenko, Oleksandr Karavaev, Taras Stepanenko, Serhiy Sydorchuk, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Mykola Shaparenko, Roman Yaremchuk, Ruslan Malinovskiy.
