A win for Croatia gets them through to the last 32. A draw puts them in a strong position. The Czechs need a win after a late defeat to Spain.

All match discussion in here please.

Croatia too good for Czech Republic. Their midfield is a bit good.

Croatia played well but hanging on a bit and now their fans are throwing flares onto the pitch which UEFA will take a dim view of it.

They have thrown it away now altogether!

Well, this one has turned a bit. Flares like you've never seen, Croatian fans fighting among themselves, Croatian players begging their fans to stop. Only three minutes to go but don't know if they'll actually be able to play them....

Edit: looks like we are kicking off again. Crazy stuff.

Clattenberg with a huge middle finger to the Croatia fans. What a penalty though.

Wow, unbelievable transformation from Czech Republic. Took them 160 minutes of football, but they're finally woken up. Should be trouble for Croatia, looks like there's still some fighting in their end.

Just been reminded that Croatia fans are protesting against their own FA. We should probably expect more of this, was there anything in their last game?

That was sheer insanity and the Croats only have themselves to blame. Most eventful game of the tourney though.

What are the protests about?

Anyone see the banner they unfurled in that corner?

Madness from the Croatian fans, they nearly hit one of their own players. Could've cost their team the top spot in their group, it all seemed to effect the Croatia players more than anything.

Croatia should have taken that. Not buying all that flare shit. They never should have drawn this game whatever the circumstances. Stupid handball at this time of the game.

Croatia/Spain is gonna be a cracker though.

Yeah God forbid. Because it doesn't make them animals.
I'm sorry, what does fighting with your own fans make you? What does chucking flares that could potentially hit your own players or lobbing flash bangs that could have injured stewards or others make them? Makes them animals in my book. Why, what would you call them?
