Croatia v Spain

Summary

Croatia v Spain (Kick-off 8.00pm). Coverage of the final Group D fixture for both sides, which takes place at the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux, where Spain are aiming to add to their two victories over Turkey and Czech Republic. These countries have only met on five previous occasions, and Spain hold the advantage having won three of those matches, with one draw and one Croatia victory. Their most recent - and to date only competitive - encounter took place during Euro 2012, when a tense group affair in Gdansk, Poland, was settled by Spanish substitute Jesus Navas' strike two minutes from time. Presented by Mark Pougatch, with commentary by Clive Tyldesley and Glenn Hoddle, and analysis from Slaven Bilic, Ian Wright and Lothar Matthaus.

Review

Before the start of the tournament, Spain and Croatia were, on paper, the strongest sides in Group D. Spain’s classic team of 2008-12 drew heavily on the nation’s top two club sides, and the 2016 vintage still does – but it can’t call on Barcelona’s dynamic Ivan Rakitic or Real Madrid’s wily Luka Modric, because they’re both in tonight’s opposition. Czech Republic v Turkey is on ITV4 at the same time.
