Croatia defeat European Champions Spain

Written by  Jun 22, 2016

Croatia has won Group D at the Euro 2016 after defeating the actual European Champions Spain in a thrilling match in Bordeaux last night. Cheered on by thousands of fans in the “Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux” Croatia came from behind to shock Spain to win 2 – 1 and top Group D with seven points. Alvaro Morata scored for the holders after just seven minutes and it looked like being a tough night for the Croatians, however a goal from Nikola Kalinic just before halftime eased their nerves. Man of the match Ivan Perisic sealed the famous win with a counter attacking goal in the 87 minute.

The whole of Croatia was awash with colour and music last night as the country celebrated topping the group and progressing into the final stages.
