Summary

Turkey v Croatia (Kick-off 2.00pm). Mark Pougatch presents coverage of the opening fixture in Group D, which takes place at the Parc des Princes in Paris. Croatia are taking part in their fourth successive European Championship, while Turkey are appearing for the first time since 2008. Ante Cacic's side finished as runners-up to Italy in their qualifying group, while the Turks claimed the one place in the tournament that was available to the best third-placed team. These countries have faced each other six times in the past, with their most famous encounter coming in the Euro 2008 quarter-finals at the Ernst Happel Stadion in Vienna. A tense game finished 0-0 after normal time, but two goals in the final minutes of extra-time forced a penalty shootout, which Turkey won 3-1. With commentary by Sam Matterface and Andy Townsend, and analysis by Glenn Hoddle, Slaven Bilic and Emmanuel Petit.
