Spain name an unchanged lineup and Croatia make a host of changes. Not worth watching this game, I think, so I'll be tuning in to Czech Rep. and Turkey.

Croatia's defence are a shambles, and I sense a 5-0 drubbing coming on.

Lovely move. At least Turkey have their first goal in the tournament.

It would have been goal of the tournament if that gorgeous chip from Croatia had gone in.

Both Turkey & Czech Rep. look dodgy in defence. Bit surprising that only one goal has been scored so far.

Beautifully worked goal there. Croatia have pulled their socks up remarkably. They were full of more holes than a Swiss cheese in the first eight minutes of the match.

Any team opposing Spain is a team I support. Go on, Croatia!

And Silva dives at the other end, by throwing himself forward knowing the defender has lost his footing. If there'd been contact, it would have been an accident. But his penalty shot is horrible, a weak shot straight at the keeper. Justice done.

Always had a soft spot for Croatia, the country and their football side. Well done. And you can't say they haven't deserved it. Woeful in the first eight minutes, but they have been the better side.

Spain, England, Italy, France and Germany all on the same side of the draw. Could be joined by Portugal too.

There are few things in this life I enjoy more than seeing Spain lose. Well done, Croatia.

... and whoever wins that game will play against Germany, probably, That's one heck of a loaded part of the tableau.
