    Spain surprisingly sloppy. Croatia really should have taken advantage.

    Croatia not committing enough men on the counter attack. Must have faith that Ireland will equalise.

    Teams pretty much always get one big chance against them.

    What pisses me off so much is the bull**** comparisons with Barcelona. They actually try and score when they're controlling the game - they score plenty against all teams and even when they don't they'll create plenty of chances.

    Spain try and win the possession stat, walk the ball in the net second and a distant third is trying to win the game.

    And yes surprised Croatia aren't committing more men, a 1-1 draw would put them through too.

    Ah Spain didnt look much cop today. I'm not much of a Croatia fan but I was rooting for them today.

    Winning the group tomorrow would see us face Italy, second gives us Spain. Not sure which is prefer ATM tbh.

    Oh and just for the record Croatia and another incredible chance from a corner when the defender wrestled the guy away from the ball as he was set to head the ball into an empty net from 3-4 yards out.

    Apologies it was a 'judo throw' and was more like 2 yards out.

    Found it amusing that Spain actually did walk the ball into the net. I'm a bigger defender of them than most but they were not good for large parts of the game, still tipping them to win it though.

    Anyway Luca Modric is just so bloody good.

    not sure. If Spain played like they did last night I would be confident we could take advantage.

    Italy are just an enigma to me at this point. Haven't looked amazing but at the same time haven't really looked like losing at any point.

    I think Italy are better than Spain, at least in this tournament. I think the way Hodgson sets up the team it might be more tactically suited against Spain than Italy.

    You get the impression Spain have a next level to step up to that Italy don't.
