  • That's it - Wales 1 Croatia 2 - A strong second half comeback from Croatia who had to work very, very hard for that but got there in the end.

  • Collins gives away a free kick on the edge of the Croatia box - just a minute left of stoppage time.

    91
  • The keeper spills it but Bellamy can't bring the ball down to get a strike in on goal.

    91
  • Late free kick for Wales - this will be bombed forward.

    90
  • GOAL EDUARDO!! Olic with the cross, Eduardo controls and then volleys low through Myhill's legs from the penalty spot.

    87
  • Croatia attacking again down the right, Wales looking tired.

    86
  • Croatia continues to pile on the pressure but Bale gets Wales a breather by winning a throw on halfway.

    84
  • Wales make a change as Jonny Williams comes off for Simon Church.

    83
  • Nervy times for Wales as Croatia miss another good chance - this time Olic fires over from eight yards out after a Rakitic lay-off.

    82
  • Olic has the chance to put a dangerous cross in from the left, but pulls it back to nobody.

    69
