Jordan Pickford is in confident mood as England prepare to face Croatia in their UEFA Nations League decider at Wembley on Sunday.
Gareth Southgate's side go into the game knowing that victory will see them top Group A4 and progress to the finals stage of the competition.
However defeat, or a score draw, would see them finish bottom of a tight group and be relegated to the second-tier of the Nations League, while a goalless draw would leave them second behind Spain and retain their League A status.

"It will be a great game for us, a sell out at Wembley and the game's got something on it," Pickford told Sky Sports.
"Hopefully the atmosphere will be good and we'll be tactically ready to win the game.
