England’s Euro 2020 opener is a tough test against 2018 World Cup runners-up Croatia.
Croatia have been receiving insider information about Chelsea trio Reece James, Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell from their Chelsea teammate Mateo Kovacic.
This is according to Croatian defender Domagoj Bradaric, who believes the tips from Kovacic and Dejan Lovren, who spent seven years in the Premier League with Southampton and Liverpool, would help the Croatian squad.
“We are all talking among ourselves,” Bradaric said, as reported by the Sun.
“They are giving us their tips and their insights on what they know and think about the English approach, the English game and their mentality because they have spent time there.
“It’s going to help us, definitely. We are talking with them and they can help a lot and contribute a lot.”
