Italy 1-1 Croatia
Mario Mandzukic's second half strike gave Croatia a deserved point in a 1-1 draw against Italy in Euro 2012 Group C.
The Italians looked set to pick up a vital three points after holding Spain to a draw in their opening encounter when Andrea Pirlo scored six minutes before half time.
However, Croatia responded well after the break and Mandzukic's third goal of the tournament ensured Slaven Bilic's men a share of the spoils.
Croatia now have four points from two games, while Italy will need to defeat the Republic of Ireland in their final match to have any chance of progressing to the quarter-finals.
Mario Balotelli had the first chance in the third minute when he collected Emanuele Giaccherini's pass in from the left but turned sharply and fired just wide of the goal.
The Manchester City forward did test Stipe Pletikosa on 16 minutes when he hit a shot from the edge of the area which the Croatia keeper could only push away before his defence cleared the danger.
Croatia did get forwards at times and went close in the 20th minute when Darijo Srna put in a low cross from the right which Nikica Jelavic was inches away from diverting into the net at the near post before Gianluigi Buffon got down well to make the save.
Pletikosa was the hero for Croatia on 37 minutes when he got down well to deny Claudio Marchisio's close-range strike, before getting back up to save his second shot from the rebound.
However Italy took the lead two minutes later after Balotelli was fouled just outside the Croatia area by Ivan Rakitic and Pirlo stepped up to curl a wonderful right-footed free kick over the wall and inside the bottom corner of the net.
Croatia improved in the second half and looked more threatening going forward so it was no surprise when they finally equalised on 72 minutes.
Ivan Strinic whipped a cross into the area from the left and it dropped at the feet of Mandzukic at the back post and he fired past Buffon via the inside of the upright.
Italy only really tested Pletikosa once in the second period with substitute Riccardo Montolivo's effort being parried by the Croatian shot-stopper on 76 minutes.
But Croatia finished the game strongly and looked the more likely to pinch a winner out of the two sides.
