Chelsea duo Ross Barkley and Mateo Kovacic featured in goalless draw

by -

Chelsea midfielders Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley, who was called back into Gareth Southgate’s England team after positive performances in the Blues’ start to the Premier League season, both played the whole game between Croatia and England last night.

The Three Lions were held to a goalless draw against the last World Cup finalists, which means next game (against Spain in Seville, on Monday) will be crucial to avoid the relegation to League B.

Barkley is literally reborn under Maurizio Sarri‘s management so far, while Mateo Kovacic was signed from Real Madrid on a season-long loan until the end of current season.

Both Chelsea loanees Mario Pasalic (Atalanta) and Mason Mount (Derby County) were unused subs in the game.
