Minute Commentary
90' CROATIA COMEBACK SEALS TOP SPOT
Croatia recorded a famous comeback against Spain to progress to the second round as winners of Group D. Alvaro Morata had Spain in the lead early on when he rounded off a slick move from David Silva and Cesc Fabregas. However, Croatia were still very much in the game and nearly equalised when a chipped effort from Ivan Rakitic, following a mistake from David De Gea, came back off the crossbar. Ante Cacic's side were then level just before half time when Nikola Kalinic flicked home an Ivan Perisic cross. Spain had a huge chance to re-take the lead in the second half when Sime Vrsaljko was adjudged to have fouled David Silva inside the box and were awarded a penalty. Sergio Ramos took the spot-kick but saw his effort saved when Danijel Subasic appeared to be well off his line. Perisic stole all three points for Croatia with three minutes left on the clock as they broke forward on the counter attack and buried the ball past David De Gea. The result means Cacic's men finish top while Vicente del Bosque's side finish second and will face Italy next Monday.
90' FULL TIME
David Silva gets a chance on the stroke of full time as his low strike gets cleared off the line before the referee blows the full time whistle.
90' INJURY TIME
We're into the first of three added minutes here. Can Spain get an equaliser?
87' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Croatia take the lead! Ante Cacic's side break on the counter attack and Nikola Kalinic lays a ball off to Ivan Perisic who fires a shot past David De Gea at his near post to make it 2-1 and take his side to the top of the group.
84' SUB FOR SPAIN
Thiago comes on to replace Cesc Fabregas for Spain. We're into the final 6 minutes here.
81' DEAD BALL
Cesc Fabregas whips in a nice curling cross towards Aduriz but its too much for the Spain substitute and Croatia have a goal kick.
78' POOR DECISION
Spain must feel aggrieved about that penalty miss. Keeper Danijel Subasic was literally on the edge of his six-yard box when he saved it. What exactly was the extra official watching?
75' WELL OVER
Ivan Rakitic tries his luck with a long-range free-kick but his right-footed effort flies up and over the bar.
72' SAVE!
Sergio Ramos takes the resulting spot-kick but sees his blasted effort saved by Danijel Subasic. The keeper looked to be well off his line there but the score remains 1-1.
70' PENALTY
Sime Vrsaljko brings down David Silva inside the box and it's a penalty to Spain.
68' GLANCING HEADER
Sergio Ramos comes within inches of putting Spain back into the lead but his glancing effort from David Silva's corner goes just wide.
66' WIDE OF THE POST
Spain are really spraying it about here now as they push forward for a second goal. Jordi Alba tries a shot with his right foot but it flies wide.
63' SPAIN ON THE BALL
Spain are looking to slow the game down and keep the ball now. As things stand they will win Group D with Croatia in second.
60' DEEP CROSS
Ivan Perisic does well to race down the left and beat his man but his eventual cross is too heavy and Spain can build again from the back.
57' JUST WIDE
Spain fail to clear a Croatia corner and it results in an overhead kick from Marko Pjaca which he sends just wide.
54' WIDE OF THE POST
Alvaro Morata gets a chance at the near post after a low cross from Jordi Alba but he sends his first time shot wide of the post.
52' GREAT TACKLE
Jordi Alba looks to hit the by-line and get a cross in but former Spurs man Vedran Corluka produces a fine slide tackle to win the ball back.
49' UP AND OVER
Andres Juanfran blasts in an early second half shot for Spain but his effort flies well wide of the mark.
46' SECOND HALF
The second half is underway.
45' ALL SQUARE
It's level at half time between Croatia and Spain after an end to end first half in Bordeaux. Ante Cacic's side started well but it was the reigning Champions who took the lead when neat build up from David Silva and Cesc Fabregas allowed Alvaro Morata to grab his third goal of the tournament from close range. Croatia were still well in it though and nearly leveled the score when Ivan Rakitic hit the bar after David De Gea was caught in possession. Spain had a great chance on the stroke of half time when Cesc Fabregas found Alvaro Morata in space but the Juve striker failed to control the ball. It was then Nikola Kalinic who grabbed the next goal from an Ivan Perisic cross to make it 1-1 at the break.
45' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Croatia are level! Ivan Perisic gets down the left wing and finds Nikola Kalinic with a cross which the former Blackburn man flicks home to make it 1-1 on the stroke of half time.
45' POOR TOUCH
The Croatia defence opens up and Cesc Fabregas finds Alvaro Morata in acres of space but his touch lets him down and Ivan Vargic can mop up the danger.
42' SPAIN CORNER
David Silva has looked very useful tonight and another run into the box results in a corner for Spain which Sergio Ramos glances wide.
39' DEEP CROSS
Darijo Srna gets a good looking deep cross in towards Ivan Perisic but his leaping header fails to find the target and Spain have a goal kick.
36' LUCKY MORATA
Alvaro Morata is lucky to get away with a ticking off from the referee after he appears to pull and kick out at Tin Jedvaj of Croatia. The striker will need to reign it in to avoid a booking now.
33' FREE-KICK
Croatia are still pushing forward here and they have a free-kick in a useful area after Nolito brings down Marko Rog on the right wing.
30' BOOKING
Marko Rog goes into the book after bringing down Cesc Fabregas in the middle of the park.
28' CORNER
Nolito finds space for another shot at goal after neat play from Spain and his deflected shot goes wide for a corner.
27' FREE-KICK
David Silva gets the chance to hit a free-kick from 25 yards but his curling left-footed effort flies straight into the wall and Croatia are able to clear.
24' LOW STRIKE
David Silva bears down on goal and hits a low shot which Ivan Vargic parries away. Alvaro Morata goes down in the process but looks okay to continue.
21' END TO END
Both sides have had chances here and Croatia are still well in this game. However, you feel that Spain have the quality to finish more chances than their opponents.
18' OFF THE BAR
David De Gea nearly gifts Croatia an equaliser as he gets caught in possession before Ivan Rakitic hits the crossbar with a chipped effort from 20 yards. That was inches from going over the line.
15' SHOT ON GOAL
Sergio Ramos makes a rare mistake and mis-places a pass which Nikola Kalinic pounces on and forces David De Gea into a smart save; turning the ball around the post for a corner.
12' THROUGH BALL
Cesc Fabregas slips a neat ball through to Nolito but it's slightly too heavy and Ivan Vargic can clear the danger.
10' JUST WIDE
Spain are then very nearly 2-0 ahead as David Silva produces a fine cross which Nolito sends just wide with a first-time effort.
7' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Spain are ahead! David Silva plays a sublime through ball to Cesc Fabregas who cuts it back to Alvaro Morata and the striker buries it home to make it 1-0.
6' WELL WIDE
Darijo Srna finds himself with a chance at the back post after Spain fail to clear their lines but the Croatia skipper blasts the ball well wide.
4' CROATIA PUSH FORWARD
Croatia are having a decent early spell and the ball nearly runs through to Marko Pjaca but David De Gea is there to collect it.
1' KICK OFF
The match kicks off.
0' ALL TO PLAY FOR
Ante Cacic will be keen to get a positive result tonight after his side threw away a 2-0 lead against Czech Republic in their last outing. Their fans also let them down as the match had to be stopped after flares were thrown onto the pitch by the Croatia fans.
0' CROATIA THROUGH
Northern Ireland's earlier 1-0 defeat to Germany means Croatia have definitely qualified for the next phase even if they lose here tonight against Spain but they will be looking to topple Vicente del Bosque's men.
0' SPAIN VS CROATIA
The top two teams in Group D face in each other in Bordeaux and a draw for Spain would be enough to see go through as group winners with Croatia in second place.
