Having set up Dalic's men for their crucial victory over Spain, Al Hain-Cole thinks the former Leicester striker will prove dangerous at Wembley

Having officially said farewell to record goalscorer Wayne Rooney, England will be hoping for their new heroes to come to the fore in Sunday’s crucial Nations League clash against Croatia.

Victory for either side would see them progress to the knockout stages ahead of Spain, although the reverse encounter in Rijeka resulted in a goalless stalemate.

Trailing Rooney by 34 goals and 86 caps, Harry Kane is available at 3/1 (4.00) with William Hill to underline his credentials as natural successor by breaking the deadlock at Wembley.

The Tottenham Hotspur star has actually gone seven matches for the Three Lions without a goal, but is still priced at a relatively narrow 5/6 (1.83) to return to form at the crucial moment in this one.

Having marked his international debut with a goal in Thursday’s friendly against the USA, Callum Wilson is on offer at 7/5 (2.40) to do the same in much more significant circumstances on his competitive debut.

On target in three of his last four starts for Gareth Southgate’s team, Marcus Rashford can be backed at 7/4 (2.75) to maintain that fine form with another goal here.

After getting the ball rolling in Thursday’s thrilling 3-2 victory over Spain, Andrej Kramaric is the Vatreni’s 8/1 (9.00) favourite to open the scoring in London.

With five goals to his name in the last six fixtures for club and country, the 27-year-old is certainly worth considering at generous 5/2 (3.50) anytime odds.

Ante Rebic has also started the Bundesliga campaign strongly with four goals in five starts for Eintracht Frankfurt so far, but looks a less appealing bet at those same 13/5 (3.60) odds considering he has struck only twice in 25 internationals.

Having scored the extra-time winner when these sides met at the World Cup semi-finals this summer, Ivan Perisic is on offer at 29/10 (3.90) to come back to haunt England once again with a 23rd international goal.
