FULL TIME. That's it, Spain win to progress as Group C winners while Croatia are out after Italy beat Ireland. Who do you think was the man of the match tonight? Send your views to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post them up.
Mandzukic is also booked for a late challenge.
Spain win a free-kick just inside the Croatia half on the right. Iniesta takes and Jelavic hands the ball and is booked.
Negredo is on for Xavi for Spain.
GOAL - NAVAS!!!! Fabregas beats the offside trap with a great pass over the defence to Iniesta who squares the ball to Navas who has a tap-in. Croatia are definitely going out now and Spain look like topping the group.
Eduardo is on for Vukojevic. It's Bilic's last throw of the dice.
Fabregas is on for Silva.
Jelavic is on for Vida, Perisic is on for Pranjic.
Jesus Navas is on for Torres. Silva is now playing as the main striker.
Strinic is booked for a challenge on Silva in the last move in which the ref played advantage.
It's goalless here at half time. Sorry technical difficulties have stopped commentary until this point. It's been a first half of few chances, let's hope there are goals in the second period.
Alfie's view - 'I think Spain will definitely keep the ball down and play their passing game which Croatia will try to stop and use high balls and there good headers of the ball. I think we'll see a lot of crosses coming in from people like Modric hoping for a Croatian head and avoiding Pique the 6'2' defender.' Cheers Alfie, enjoy the game!
My view - both teams here need a 2-2 draw to go through....my prediction is......2-2.... which pays a handsome 9/1 with Sky Bet! what are your views / predictions for tonight's game? Send them to email@example.com and i will post up the best throughout the evening.
FIRST VIEW - Timal says: 'Draw is enough for Spain I think. Because +4 Goal different. But I don't think they do it. Because they need this good momentum going with them as past game. Hope Spain & Italy qualify & Torres will come to score sheet again.' Cheers Timal, enjoy the game!
Sky Bet's Steve has been in touch to say: 'Spain are being heavily backed to secure their place in the last eight with victory over Croatia. La Roja are now 4/9 to secure the win and top Group C, while Croatia are drifting and are now out to 9/1 to spring a huge surprise with the draw 11/4. After his performance against the Republic of Ireland last week, we have seen plenty of money for Fernando Torres to net first and a 2-0 Torres/Spain scorecast.' Cheers for the info Steve.
