Stanković: ‘Belief’ earned Croatia draw ©Sportsfile

Flying goalkeeper Matija Capar equalised just over two minutes from time to earn Croatia a superb draw against UEFA Futsal EURO holders Spain.

Semi-finalists at home in 2012, Croatia deservedly led 2-1 at half-time but a two-goal burst in less than a minute from Lin seemed to have won it for the five-time champions, only for Capar to dramatically level. Croatia will now be through from Group D on Friday if they beat the Czech Republic, who Spain – missing injured Miguelín – play on Sunday.
