The 2018 World Cup finalists were able to restore parity in the second half after falling behind in the first one and, ultimately, snatch a point.

Euro 2020 Group D matchday 2 fixture Croatia vs Czech Republic ended in a 1-1 stalemate.

Neither of the two contestants at Hampden Park was particularly deserving of a win and both should be satisfied with the result.

Dejan Lovren, rather controversially, got penalized for catching Patrik Schick with an elbow in an aerial challenge deep into the first half. Schick cooly converted the resultant spot-kick to take his tally up to three goals in two games in the tournament.

Seven minutes into the second half, the Czechs found the equalizer. Perisic, after cutting inside from the left, sent a right-footed effort past goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik to keep his side’s Euro 2020 last-16 hopes alive.

Czech Republic now lead Group D with four points. England, having played a game fewer, sit at second place with three points while Croatia find themselves are third with a single point.
