KOVACIC MISSES A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY!
The Chelsea man did the hard work to drive into the box with the ball glued to his feet, but as the goal opened up for him, he shanked his effort wide.

WHAT A GOAL THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN FOR MODRIC!
He twizzles on the edge of the box to lose his marker and get a shot off, but it's saved well by Schmeichel.

DANGEROUS FREE KICK FOR CROATIA
The movement from Modric is spellbinding as he shifts his body too quickly for Kjaer who brings the Real Madrid man down on the edge of the box.

WIND IN THE CROATIAN SAILS
The hosts have their tails up after that opener and they try to fly forward again but a deep cross is cleared.

'A FINISH THAT OOZES QUALITY' - CROATIA LEAD!
It's brilliant from the left-back. Sosa lurks on the edge of the 18-yard box as the ball pings about in front of Schmeichel's goal before it trickles perfectly into the path of the 24-year-old who guides the ball into the bottom left corner.
