Euro 2016: Czech Republic 2-2 Croatia

Goals from Milan Skoda and Tomas Necid helped the Czech Republic secure a dramatic draw against Croatia – but the match was overshadowed by crowd trouble. Play was stopped in the 86th minute as a number of flares were thrown on to the pitch and fighting broke out in the Croatia end of the ground.

Croatia had opened the scoring on 37 minutes. Ivan Rakitic added a second on 58 minutes. He sprung the offside trap and produced a sublime chip over Petr Cech to double his side’s lead.

The Czech Republic were just showing signs of getting back into the game but more sloppy play by Mario Brozovic set the ball rolling for Rakitic to score. But the Czechs grabbed one back on 75 minutes after substitute Milan Skoda rose high above the defence to meet Tomas Rosicky’s cross.

And they bagged a dramatic equaliser in the dying minutes after Tomas Necid converted a late penalty.
