Euro 2020 England vs Croatia WAGs from ‘Shakira lookalike’ to Insta model

England are looking to capture their first European Championship this summer, 61 years after the competition first staged its inaugural tournament.

And Gareth Southgate's men open their campaign against Croatia – who knocked England out of the 2018 World Cup – on Sunday afternoon at Wembley.

While England will be hoping to score on the pitch – they have certainly scored off it, and players from both sides will have some familiar faces in the stands on Sunday afternoon.

And Daily Star Sport is taking a look at some of the WAGs who could be present for the opening clash.

Paige Milian

Raheem Sterling and Milian met as teenagers, when the soon-to-be footballer was at QPR, and, in 2018, Sterling proposed to Milian.

The pair – who have a child together – were meant to tie the knot in 2020, however, they postponed the wedding due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

She currently heads up her own property business – Milian Property Group – which Sterling is also affiliated with.

Fern Hawkins

Fern Hawkins, Harry Maguire's fiancee, became the breakout star of the 2018 World Cup after a photo of her and her boyfriend went viral.

Like Maguire, Hawkins is from Sheffield and the pair met in 2011, and they have been inseparable ever since.

The stunning brunette has a Bachelor's degree in science and physiotherapy, and she graduated with a First Class Honours in 2017.

Megan Davison

In 2018, Davison was in the stands as Pickford made himself a national hero between the sticks – when he denied former AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca.

Davison was then just Pickford's girlfriend, but Pickford has since tied the knot with his childhood sweetheart.

The pair met at their secondary school, St Robert of Newminster RC, in Washington, Tyne and Wear.

Ivan Perisic met his future wife, Josipa, when they were still in school, and the pair dated for ten years before they married in 2012.

Perisic, like her husband, was born into a significantly different world in Split – which was still part of Yugoslavia prior to its collapse in 1994.

Perisic was on the scoresheet last time the two sides met, three years ago in Russia, and Josipa will be hoping her husband will be able to find the net again.

Izabel Kovacic

Izabel Kovacic is no stranger to London – where the clash will take place – and she has called the city home since her husband, Mateo Kovacic, moved to Chelsea in 2018.

She has been dubbed as the Croatian Shakira thanks to her long curly blonde hair, which bears a striking resemblance to the pop-star.

Kovacic also holds an economics degree, and she heads up several successful businesses.

Vanja Bosnic

Vanja Bosnic has been a constant rock for Luka Modric, she was there for his World Cup disappointment in Russia, and then when he picked up the Ballon d'Or.

The pair met in 2007, while Bosnic was working at Mamic sports agency, where Modric was a client at Dinamo Zagreb.

Bosnic keeps a low profile, and she largely avoids social media.
