Following the loss to England, Zlatko Dalić's men have faced Czech Republic in Group D campaign - five years after their encounter at EURO 2016.

In the first half, it was Czech Republic who created better opportunities, while Croatia pulled off a move for Perišić from a corner kick. On 37 minutes, Schick converted a penalty to secure his team the lead.
