Croatia 2-1 Spain
Ivan Perišić hit the target late to decide a competitive group stage collision between Croatia and Spain, as the "Vatreni" came from a goal behind to stun the reigning European champions in Bordeaux.
A well worked goal which saw David Silva send Fabregas through who set Morata up for a close range tap in opened the scoring after just 7 minutes.
On the stroke half-time, a wonderful flick from Kalinic levelled up the scoring.
Spain started well in the second half and were soon given a penalty after David Silva went down in the area, but Ramos would be denied by the keeper.
Then with the minutes ticking down, a counter attack from Croatia ended with Perisic beating de Gea at his near post which means Croatia top their group.

David de Gea just managed to latch on to a loose ball after Rog's shot took a deflection in the early minutes, as the keeper ensured no danger would occur early on. While the reigning champions did take a few minutes to truly kick into gear, it was certainly worth the wait when they eventually did.
Back to his great days of playing architect, David Silva was the playmaker, sculpting a truly sublime and authentic Spanish goal. Angling his run away from the box, David Silva scooped a through ball past the defence to meet the run of Fabregas at the right post, where he fired across goal for an easy tap in to Alvaro Morata.
An attempt by de Gea to play the ball out to his defenders was intercepted by Rakitic, who spotted the keeper off his line and went for the audacious attempt of chipping him. It floated in the air for what seemed like an eternity, before crashing off the crossbar and bouncing on the line as lady luck handed La Furia Roja a major let off.
Further speculative chances which saw Nolito close down and Silva's free kick blocked were a sign of Spain's dwindling influence on the game. Croatia grew and verged on dominance towards the half-time whistle, with Rakitic pulling the strings in midfield.
Perisic headed off target from a cross while a last chance for Spain crumbled due to a poor Morata first touch on to Fabregas' through ball, before the first half ended in a fashion fitting of its nature, an extraordinary one.

A Juanfran attempt was blasted over the bar to start the second half, as Spain looked to dictate possession far more effectively than they did in the first. They were awaiting to pounce on the opportunity, and it could have came when Sergio Ramos met David Silva's well placed corner, but it was marginally wide.
Spain were then essentially gifted a penalty after David Silva went down in the area with Vrsaljko trailing him, applying little to no contact. For all their hard work to resist the Spanish forces late on, Sergio Ramos now had the opportunity to crush Croatian hopes.

An opportunity for Aduriz opened up outside the box but it was blocked and Croatia immediately broke. Kalinic held it up well before dishing it out to Perisic on the left of the box, where he raced with Pique and unleashed a low effort that beat de Gea at the near post surprisingly, putting Croatia on the brink of a huge victory.
David Silva managed to slip through late on but his shot was eventually blocked, and with that Croatia managed to hold on, beating Spain in the European Championships for the first time since 2004. Better yet, they put themselves in a favourable position going into the Round of 16.
