GOAL! Czech Republic 0-1 Croatia (Perisic, 38 min)
To the surprise of absolutely no one, least of all the Czech Republic, Ivan Perisic gives Croatia the lead with a splendid goal. Milan Badelj won the ball in the Czech half and it ran to Perisic, who had ample space to attack. He isolated a defender, romped into the area, shifted the ball on to his left foot and drilled an expert finish low to Cech’s left.
GOAL! Czech Republic 0-2 Croatia (Rakitic, 59 min)
That should be that. Roman Hubnik drops his team-mates in it by losing the ball to Brozovic near his own area. Brozovic is alert enough to prod it through to Rakitic, who keeps his cool and dinks a lovely finish over the advancing Cech. Croatia are heading for the last 16.
GOAL! Czech Republic 1-2 Croatia (Skoda, 76 min)
Tomas Rosicky curves a wonderful ball into the area with the outside of his right foot and Milan Skoda plants a firm header inside the left post with what may well be his first touch.
GOAL! Czech Republic 2-2 Croatia (Necid pen, 90 min+3)
This is incredible! A long free-kick is pumped into the Croatia area and Vida is penalised for a clear handball!
This is nerveless from Tomas Necid, who blasts his penalty high past Subasic to drag the Czechs level! Absurd.
Full-time: Czech Republic 2-2 Croatia
This bizarre game is over
A point means that Croatia go top of Group D but this could be a costly slip if they end up finishing second. That they’ve not won this game is absurd. They were vastly superior to the Czechs for long periods, led by two goals and looked like they were going to win by a handsome margin. They weren’t the same side when Luka Modric went off, though, and the Czechs fought back thanks to two substitutes, meaning that they’re still alive. They’ll probably go through if they beat Turkey in their final game.
