EURO 2012 LIVE: Italy vs. Croatia
Question of the Day
1935: Nine minutes left to play, can either side score a winner? You’d have to say the momentum is now with Croatia having pulled level and improved drastically in the second half. Riccardo Montolivo is booked after catching the back of Mandzukic’s head when challenging him for a header.
1932: Croatia equalizes in the 72nd minute and it’s Mario Mandzukic with his third goal of the tournament. His first touch isn’t the greatest as he controls a cross from the left but his second makes up for it, lashing the ball in off the near post. Russia’s Alan Dzagoev and Germany’s Mario Gomez are the other players with three goals so far.
1922: With 70 minutes played, the Italians still lead 1-0. If the score stays the same, they would go top of the group _ at least for a few hours. Thiago Motta and Mario Balotelli have been replaced by Riccardo Montolivo and Antonio Di Natale for Italy while Ivan Perisic is taken off for Daniel Pranjic for Croatia.
1918: Italy midfielder Thiago Motta has picked up a yellow card for a tussle with Nikica Jelavic at a Croatia corner. At the other end, Balotelli, who has been quiet in the second half, powers a long-range shot over the crossbar.
1912: A smoke bomb is holding up play here and it has come from the Croatia fans, landing just next to the pitch. The Croatian FA could face a fine because of the conduct of their supporters.
1905: Modric has had two chances already after the break. His first effort dribbled through to Buffon; his second was struck much firmer but flies over the bar. It looks like the Tottenham midfielder will be playing further forward this half.
1901: The teams are back out and the second half is under way. No substitutions yet.
