29' - Croatia have been far more adventurous after the own goal that gave them the lead. Spain are understandably deflated and their passing too has been wayward since this happened...

20' - OWN GOAL! What a freak goal as Croatia gets an unlikely lead against Spain!

Unai Simon can't believe his luck! He barely had to do anything up until now but a simple pass back to him costs him. He now has to pick the ball out of his net.

We have a really mouth-watering clash on our hands.

Jun 28, 2021 21:09 (IST)

Another record for Pedri!

Jun 28, 2021 20:54 (IST)

Spain manager Luis Enrique made two changes to his starting lineup for their Euro 2020 last 16 clash with Croatia from the side that hammered Slovakia 5-0 in their final Group E match.

Ferran Torres, who netted against the Slovakians, replaces Gerard Moreno up front and will play alongside Alvaro Morata and Pablo Sarabia, while Jose Gaya comes into the left back slot instead of 32-year old stalwart Jordi Alba.

Captain Sergio Busquets will continue to pull the strings in a three-man midfield including Koke and Pedri.

Ante Rebic starts on the left flank for Croatia, replacing Ivan Perisic, who is in self-isolation after contracting COVID-19 following their 3-1 win over Scotland in the final Group D match.

Duje Caleta-Car replaces the suspended Dejan Lovren in the centre of defence and attacking midfielder Nikola Vlasic gets the nod again as coach Zlatko Dalic deploys an adventurous formation to face the Spaniards.

Spain Starting XI - Unai Simon; Cesar Azpilicueta, Eric Garcia, Aymeric Laporte, Jose Gaya; Pedri, Sergio Busquets, Koke; Ferran Torres, Alvaro Morata, Pablo Sarabia

Spain fell behind in the first half to a Pedri own goal from near the halfway line after an incredible error from keeper Unai Simon but they looked on their way to a comfortable victory with goals from Pablo Sarabia, Cesar Azpilicueta and Ferran Torres.

Yet Croatia staged an unthinkable comeback with goals from Mislav Orsic in the 85th minute and a Mario Pasalic header in added time to force the extra period.

Spain showed tremendous character though and prevailed thanks to Morata’s superb strike in the 100th minute and a goal from Mikel Oyarzabal in the 103rd.

Spain celebrated a first knockout win in a major tournament since winning Euro 2012 to set up a quarter-final against France or Switzerland in St Petersburg on Friday.

Croatia head home with their heads held high but are still waiting to win a knockout game at a Euros.

Morata has been the centre of attention of Spain’s campaign amid inconsistent performances and criticism from his own supporters, which took an ugly turn during last week’s 5-0 win over Slovakia.

His wife and children were threatened by supporters in Seville and he complained of facing death threats before the game, prompting coach Luis Enrique to urge police action.

Morata has been accused of having a fragile disposition but showed real leadership when Spain’s confidence was on the floor, controlling a Dani Olmo cross with one foot before blasting into the roof of the net.

His team mate Simon also compensated for his first-half howler, making a superb save to thwart Andrej Kramaric early in extra-time.

Substitute Oyarzabal struck moments later to increase Spain’s lead and this time Croatia had no response.
