The Nations League reaches its conclusion on Sunday with Spain and Croatia contesting the third final in the competition's history in Rotterdam. 

The football does not stop there though, with two more rounds of Euro 2024 qualifiers to come on Monday and Tuesday before a brief summer hiatus. 

We have looked at Sunday and Monday's matches to pick out five potential goalscorers from the forthcoming fixtures.

Andrej Kramaric is becoming increasingly important for Croatia

Working out where the goals are going to come from when watching Croatia can be troublesome, with coach Zlatko Dalic having a preference to chop and change his frontline amid a shortage of a world class attacking talent. 

However, Andrej Kramaric has started finding the back of the net more consistently for the Croats, netting five in his last 11 games, including a goal in the Nations League semi-final win against the Netherlands. 

Kramaric grabbed 12 goals for Hoffenheim this season and finished the Bundesliga campaign with a flourish, scoring seven times in his final nine games. 

He has been far busier in the penalty area for both club and country recently and poses a threat to a more adventurous Spain team that was exposed in their semi-final against Italy.

The Netherlands will be eager to give the home fans something to cheer about after missing out on the Nations League final when facing Italy in the third place play-off.

The Dutch have a good selection of attacking options and were aggressive in the semi-final defeat to Croatia, registering 14 attempts on goal, three of which came from Cody Gakpo.

The Liverpool man did not manage to score but he netted twice in the Nations League group stages, bagged three for the Oranje at the World Cup and scoring seven times for Liverpool following his mid-season move to Anfield.

Gareth Southgate is expected to freshen up his England side for the Euro 2024 qualifier against North Macedonia and one of those waiting in the wings for a start is Marcus Rashford. 

The 25-year-old may not be in the type of blistering form he was following the World Cup but looked sharp when coming off the bench in England's 4-0 win over Malta.

He scored three times at the World Cup for the Three Lions and faces a North Macedonian defence hindered by suspensions and fresh from shipping three against Ukraine on Friday.

Wales were embarrassed by Armenia on Friday and face another tough night when travelling to Turkey, who have found some form in front of goal. 

The Turks have scored at least twice in eight of their last 10 internationals and can expose a Wales defence so overwhelmed by Armenia and which was on the wrong end of a 6-4 scoreline the last time the sides met in Turkey.

Galatasaray's Kerem Akturkoglu looks an interesting candidate to score on Monday, having bagged 14 times in domestic competition this season. 

He netted in the win over Armenia earlier in Euro 2024 qualifying, his fourth international goal, and having averaged nearly two shots per game this season, is a lively goalscoring contender.

Switzerland will hope Granit Xhaka can make the most of his more advanced role

Switzerland have scored at least twice in 11 of their last 13 home Euro qualifiers and are worth a look for their clash with Romania. 

Granit Xhaka's price stands out amongst the potential Swiss goalscorers, having joined up with his national team fresh from his best-ever goalscoing season for Arsenal, netting nine times for the Gunners.

Xhaka plays a more advanced role for Switzerland and is averaging nearly two shots per game through three Euro 2024 qualifiers. He bagged in the win over Belarus and may chalk up goal number 14 for his national side on Monday.
