England will get its European Championship (Euro 2020) campaign underway when it takes on Croatia at the Wembley Stadium in London. The match will kick-off at 6:30pm IST.

The Three Lions will be looking for their first opening game win at the European Championship. The nation has not won a single opening game in nine attempts, and will face a Croatian side that had dumped it out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

England has an injury concern in the form of Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire, who suffered an ankle injury last month. But England manager Gareth Southgate said Maguire could feature in the Euro 2020 clash with 2018 World Cup finalist Croatia.
