    77' GOOOAOOOOOLLLL!!! WHAT A GOAL FROM PERISIC!!! HE SCORES AT HAMPDEN. HE IS SCOTLAND'S HEARTBREAKER. CROATIA SURELY THROUGH NOW. A brilliant delivery from the right corner post. It's flat to the near post. Perisic beats Tierney and gets the faintest of touch to head the ball at an angle to the far post. 3-1

From a Croat corner, the ball is rolled to Modric outside the box. Luka Modric hands Croats the lead with moment of genuine world-class quality. What a finish from the outside of his right boot, curling the box from wide and into the net.

  • Jun 23, 2021 01:48 AM IST


    59' MCGINNNN AND MISSES! OH, BOY! HOW DID HE MISS? They advance down the left and Armstrong puts in a lovely delivery early to far post. Incoming McGinn looks to go with the outside of his left boot instead of trusting his preferred right foot. How costly will this prove?

  • Jun 23, 2021 01:45 AM IST


    56' WHAT A SAVE! Perisic get on the end of a peach of a through lob from none other than Modric, he takes the shot but is denied by Marshall, who had charged off his line.

    Croatia vs Scotland

    50' CLOSE BUT HURT! Gvardiol finds himself one-on-one with Scotland goalkeeper D. Marshall, who comes off his line to make the save, after released by Brozovic. Because of the poor first touch, Gvardiol is second best and in a desperate attempt to get contact, he collides with Marshall. Both okay now.

  • Jun 23, 2021 01:37 AM IST


    49' Excellent pressure from McGinn, forcing an error to win the ball back again. But most of it is in the middle third so far.

  • Jun 23, 2021 01:34 AM IST


    45+1' Croatia set the ball rolling once again. 45 minutes of raw emotion. No HT changes on either ends. Who will it be?

    SO LOUD!

    Hampden has erupted. Coming to the goal, Roberston's cross is mishandled by Adams but the ball is half cleared to McGregor, at the edge of the box. He takes a great first touch before rifling the ball into the back of the net. WOW

  • Jun 23, 2021 01:13 AM IST


    42' GOOOOOAOLLLLLL!!! MCGREGOR SCORES FOR THE FIRST TIME IN INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL AND WHAT A TIME TO SCORE! First goal in this tournament and first in over 23 years. Wow.

  • Jun 23, 2021 12:57 AM IST


    25' OH WHAT A PASSAGE OF PLAY! It had everything. WOW! Scotland respond and almost equalise. Armstrong lobs the ball to the far post from the right and McGinn heads the ball across goal. Neither Dykes or Adams can get there.

    Then, Robertson wins it back as Modric, of all people, lose possession. McGinn from 12 yards out, fails to beat Livakovic through a forest of bodies.

  • Jun 23, 2021 12:49 AM IST

  • Jun 23, 2021 12:44 AM IST

    Croatia vs Scotland

    11' WIDE!! Dykes plays the ball to Adams from the goal kick and the latter shoos from 25 yards out on the right. The ball drags wide. He wants a corner but referee says nothing doing.

  • Jun 23, 2021 12:38 AM IST


    7' OH WHAT A CHANCE! McGinn puts in a gorgeous ball from the left and off his weaker foot. The ball floats over Vida and meets Adams, who fails to score from 4 yards outs. The Croat keeper gets a touch and it's corner for the Scotland but nothing comes off it.

  • Jun 23, 2021 12:35 AM IST

    12,000 BUT SO LOUD

    5' Hard to believe that only 12,000 fans are present in the stadium. They are so loud that the commentators are barely audible.

  • Jun 23, 2021 12:32 AM IST

  • Jun 23, 2021 12:25 AM IST


    The players and referees walk out. National athems follow

  • Jun 23, 2021 12:19 AM IST


    Victory over Croatia will be sufficient for Scotland to progress either as group runners-up or as one of the four best third-placed finishers.

    Were Scotland to win and England and the Czechs draw, Scotland would finish third. They could then face either Netherlands, the winner of Group E (Sweden, Slovakia or Spain) in Glasgow on Tuesday June 29 or the winner of Group B (Belgium).

    If they finish second, they would face the runners-up from Group E - Spain, Sweden, Poland or Slovakia.

  • Jun 23, 2021 12:18 AM IST

    Right then.

    We are just a few minutes away from kickoff. Let's remind you of the group situation now

    Croatia have never beaten Scotland in their five previous meetings (D3 L2). In fact, France (8 games) and Portugal (7) are the only teams the Croats have faced on more occasions without ever securing a victory.

  • Jun 22, 2021 11:52 PM IST

    Euro 2020:
