EURO 2012 LIVE: Ireland vs. Croatia
Question of the Day
2208: Robbie Keane is livid at not being given a penalty there. And with some justification. His legs get taken away by Croatia defender Gordon Schildenfeld just inside the area but the referee turns away the Ireland captain’s appeals. A penalty decision there would have made the final quarter of the game interesting.
Mandzukic grabs his second of the game and it is another unfortunate goal for Ireland to let in. The Croat rises and sends a towering header header goalwards from a cross. The ball hits the post before striking Given on the head and going in. Given knew nothing about it, having thrown himself down to his left to try and save it but Croatia now lead by two goals.
2130: Nikica Jelavic gives Croatia the lead for the second time but it is a terrible goal for Ireland to concede. Modric drives a low shot into a crowd of players and the ball is miscued by an Ireland defender straight to Jelavic, who lifts the ball over Shay Given and into the net. He runs over to Bilic to celebrate.
2116: Modric goes close for Croatia. Srna, Croatia captain, works his way down the right a plays a short pass to Modric who curls the ball at goal first time. It is straight at Given though, who catches comfortably.
2116: Vedran Corluka concedes a free kick in an identical position to where Ireland scored. McGeady sends the ball towards the back post again but this time it just has too much on it and Stephen Ward can’t reach it.
