  1. FULL TIME. Croatia 2 Wales 0.

  2. 90+3

    Church's ball from the byline nearly catches Pletikosa off guard but the keeper recovers well. Straight up the other end, Mandzukic sets forward and drives a good shot at goal which is collected by Price.

  3. 90+2

    Ledley gives Bale everything to do with a ball down the left. You have to feel for Bale, he's been head and shoulders the best Wales player by some way tonight.

  4. 90+1

    Bale steps up and fires at the near post with Pletikosa showing good handling to gather the ball splendidly.

  5. 90

    Four minutes of added time to be played.

  6. 90

    Simunic makes the tackle on Allen, but it's a poor one and it gives Wales a free-kick roughly 20 yards from goal.

  7. 88

    Bale makes a run that is simply world class. He runs upwards of 50 yards before firing at goal, with Pletikosa parrying into Church's path who can only fire over on the half volley.

  8. 86

    Davies looks to keep the ball alive at the byline, but the momentum of Bale's ball is against him and he can do nothing but watch the ball run out for a goal kick.

  9. 85

    The impressive Perisic is the man replaced with the blonde locks of Vida taking his place.

  10. 85

    Kranjcar battles with Blake and wins his team a throw-in as the hosts prepare to make another substiution.

  11. 84

    After a succession of dummies, Srna is the man in the box to fire a shot away but it's wide of Price's left hand post.

  12. 82

    Croatia could have scored a marvellous goal. Interplay between Modric and Perisic results in the former blasting across the goal, the midfielder incredibly unlucky not to find the net.

  13. 80

    Church takes a tumble under Strinic, and then takes the ball to the head from Gunter's clearance. A rough five seconds to say the least for the striker.

  14. 79

    Davies bombs forward but a loose pass from Ledley ends a promising run down the left. Fair play to Wales, they're battling incredibly hard at the moment.

  15. 78

    Vokes ends up penalising Mandzukic from the corner, and with that Kranjcar arrives for Eduardo.

  16. 77

    Bale dispossesses Ratikic, with an attack eventually forming for Wales. Vokes can't find his feet to shoot but does well to win his side a corner.

  17. 76

    A wonderful cross from Perisic again - as Mandzukic arrives at the back post to meet it but ends up heading straight at Price.

  18. 74

    Incredible scenes! Modric nutmegs Gunter before taking aim, with WIlliams blocking. A goalmouth scramble ensures, with Price making two desperate saves before Wales eventually clear!

  19. 73

    King is withdrawn for Wales with Vokes the man replacing him.

  20. 72

    Bales and Allen carve away forward, but a heavy touch from Churhc forces Allen wide, before his delivery is eventually cleared by Schildenfeld.
