Croatia face Spain at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen in the Round of 16 this evening (Monday) for a place in the UEFA Euro 2020 quarter-finals.
Croatia had to take the scenic route to make it to the UEFA Euro 2020 Round of 16, having raked in just one point after their first two games.
However, a 3-1 win over Scotland coupled with England’s 1-0 success against Czech Republic meant the Vatreni clinched second spot in Group D behind the Three Lions.
Spain, like Croatia, were up against it after their opening two fixtures in the group stage.
With each of those games ending in a stalemate, La Roja needed all three points to guarantee their place in the Round of 16.
And Luis Enrique’s charges did exactly that, with a 5-0 rout of Slovakia confirming their spot at Group E runners-up.
