Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Croatia have taken a massive step to UEFA EURO 2012 with a terrific disciplined performance in Turkey. Rock solid in defence and deadly on the counter Turkey had no answer and will need something very special to turn things around in Zagreb on Tuesday.

    Umut Bulut (in) - Burak Yılmaz (out) (Turkey)
  • 80
    Olić (Croatia) misses the target.
    It is so easy for Croatia. A well worked corner is floated to the back post where Darijo Srna volleys at goal and the striker tries to turn the ball on target, but it is just too quick for him to control.
  • 80
    Rakitić (Croatia) delivers the corner.
  • 79
    Giray Kaçar (Turkey) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Olić (Croatia).

  • 77
    Volkan Demirel (Turkey) makes a save.
  • 77
    Modrić (Croatia) has an effort on goal.
    The midfielder, who has been brilliant today, attempts to curl into the far corner but it just does not have the power to sneak in the far post. Croatia are coasting.
  • 76
    Gökhan Töre (Turkey) delivers the corner.
  • 76
    Sabri Sarıoğlu (Turkey) has a shot blocked.
    Finally an effort in this second period for Turkey, but it was anything but dangerous. The ball is blocked and flies high over the bar from the midfielders shot.
  • 74
    Srna (Croatia) delivers the corner.
  • 73
    Rakitić (Croatia) has a shot blocked.
    Croatia put some beautifully weighted passes together as they break away, and the ball eventually finds Ivan Rakitić but his low shot flies just wide as the grateful Volkan Demirel watches the ball slip past his post.
  • 72
    Mandžukić (Croatia) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Giray Kaçar (Turkey).

    Mehmet Topal (in) - Selçuk İnan (out) (Turkey)
  • 67
    Srna (Croatia) misses the target.
    The FC Shakhtar Donetsk wide man has set up two goals tonight, the second from a set-peice, but his effort this time is high and wide as he aims to get on the scoresheet himself from 30 metres.
  • 67
    Srna (Croatia) takes the free-kick.
  • Yellow Card
    66
    Emre Belözoğlu (Turkey) is booked.

  • 65
    Volkan Demirel (Turkey) makes a save.
  • 65
    Modrić (Croatia) has an effort on goal.
    The midfielder powers a shot in, but it is too central. It was a great run forward and Turkey look to have given up now. Croatia creating chances whenever they venture forward.
  • 64
    Volkan Demirel (Turkey) makes a save.
  • 64
    Šimunić (Croatia) has an effort on goal.
    It is almost the fourth. Turkey's defence has not been up to scratch. Another Darijo Srna free-kick from the right and the Croatia central defender is first to the ball, his flicked shot just too close to Volkan Demirel.
  • 64
    Srna (Croatia) takes the free-kick.
  • Yellow Card
    64
    Hakan Balta (Turkey) is booked.
    Another free-kick for Croatia and Darijo Srna will whip in from a similar position from where the third was scored.

  • 54

  • Goal
    51
    Čorluka (Croatia) scores!
    It is three! That could end the tie. The Tottenham Hotspur FC defender escapes his marker, Burak Yılmaz, and meets Darijo Srna's whipped free-kick five metres out. How can Turkey come back from this?
  • 51
    Srna (Croatia) takes the free-kick.
  • 51
    Egemen Korkmaz (Turkey) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Srna (Croatia).
    It is a free-kick wide on the right in a dangerous position. Can Croatia get that killer third?

  • 48

  • 45
    Volkan Demirel (Turkey) makes a save.
  • 45
    Olić (Croatia) has an effort on goal.
    A great save from Volkan Demirel prevents the third. Turkey are being cut open at the back. Gökhan Gönül is brushed aside by Mario Mandžukić who plays in Ivica Olić in acres on the right. It looks destined to be three but the stopper rushes out to block brilliantly.
  • 43
    Mandžukić (Croatia) is adjudged to be in an offside position.
  • 42
    Vida (Croatia) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Hamit Altıntop (Turkey).

  • 40
    Dujmović (Croatia) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Selçuk İnan (Turkey).
  • 39
    Arda Turan (Turkey) delivers the corner.
    Giray Kaçar is unable to direct his header on goal from the corner but Croatia's muscular defence is performing very well at the moment.
  • 36
    Volkan Demirel (Turkey) makes a save.
  • 36
    Olić (Croatia) has an effort on goal.
    Another effort as the Turkey defence struggles to cope. They have been called on only briefly so far and have been breached with regularity. This time Ivica Olić collects a cross in the box but his shot on the turn lacks power.
  • 36
    Selçuk İnan (Turkey) is penalised for a foul on Mandžukić (Croatia).
  • 35
    Emre Belözoğlu (Turkey) takes the free-kick.

  • Goal
    32
    Mandžukić (Croatia) scores!
    Croatia have doubled their lead! It is Mario Mandžukić this time. Darijo Srna breaks down the right and after Luka Modrić's shot is blocked Srna stands another cross up to the far post and the forward outjumps the defender at the back post.
  • 32
    Modrić (Croatia) has a shot blocked.
  • 30
    Volkan Demirel (Turkey) makes a save.
    Croatia counter at speed. Mario Mandžukić sprints free down the middle and slips Ivica Olić in on the right. The forward's run takes him to too tight an angle and the Turkish stopper collects comfortably.
  • 30
    Olić (Croatia) has an effort on goal.
  • 30
    Arda Turan (Turkey) is penalised for a foul on Vida (Croatia).
  • 29

  • 25
    Burak Yılmaz (Turkey) is flagged for offside.
  • 25
    Selçuk İnan (Turkey) misses the target.
    The first effort from Turkey was a powerful one but lacked the direction. The ball fell to the Galatasaray AŞ man 30 metres out and his right foot blast went wide of the right post. They'll be hoping for better.
  • 24
    Hakan Balta (Turkey) is penalised for a foul on Srna (Croatia).
  • 21
    Olić (Croatia) is penalised for a foul on Selçuk İnan (Turkey).

  • 15
    Vida (Croatia) is penalised for a foul on Arda Turan (Turkey).
  • 13
    Rakitić (Croatia) misses the target.
    Another good effort from the visitors. The Sevilla FC man goes on a cross-field and finds himself in front of goal 20 metres out but his left-foot shot is dragged low and wide of the right side upright.
  • 10
    Sabri Sarıoğlu (Turkey) is penalised for a foul on Šimunić (Croatia).
    Josip Šimunić is caught in the face as the Turkey forwards rush in on a loose ball. There is plenty of energy from the home front men as they battle to get their side back level. No chances have come their way yet.
  • 6
    Selçuk İnan (Turkey) takes the free-kick.
  • 5
    Dujmović (Croatia) is penalised for a foul on Emre Belözoğlu (Turkey).
  • 4
    Mandžukić (Croatia) misses the target.
    Another chance as Ivica Olić gets highest in the box and Mario Mandžukić shoots the knock down wide. It is a brilliant start for Croatia. A dream start. Turkey are in shock and the home crowd don't know how to react.
  • 4
    Srna (Croatia) takes the free-kick.
  • 3
    Selçuk İnan (Turkey) is penalised for a foul on Srna (Croatia).
  • Goal
    2
    Olić (Croatia) scores!
    What a start for Croatia! A free-kick is taken quickly on the left Vedran Ćorluka gets to the dead-ball line and fires the ball across the goal. Goalkeeper Volkan Demirel can not cut out the cross and the FC Bayern München man taps in from close.
  • 2
    Giray Kaçar (Turkey) is penalised for a foul on Modrić (Croatia).
  • Start Time
    The match is under way.
    We are off! Croatia get us under way and immediately attempt to attack down the left. The crowd are jumping. What an atmosphere.
