Croatia ends 16-year wait

sports Updated: Jun 04, 2011 23:21 IST

Croatia ended a 16-year wait for a win by beating Georgia 2-1 in an enthralling Euro 2012 qualifier on Friday. The victory lifted Croatia to the top of Group F with 13 points from six matches, ahead of Greece who have 11 from five and Israel who are on 10 points from six games.

Croatia had drawn six and lost three matches at Poljud since first playing there as an independent nation in 1995 and the jinx seemed set to continue when they fell behind against the run of play.
