Croatia defeats Spain at home in the UEFA Nations League to set up a dramatic matchup against England in London on Sunday.
The win, in front of a packed Maksimir stadium in downtown Zagreb, means Croatia still has a chance to advance to finals of the inaugural Nations League.
Croatia led the game three times but Spain fought back twice; while the third and winning goal left no time on the clock for the visitors to equalize.
The hero of the night was 22-year-old Tin Jevaj, a defender who plays his club football at Bayern Leverkusen. Jedvaj put in two goals for Croatia, with the first coming in the 69th minute and the winning goal coming in extra time. Andrej Kramarić put in the game’s first goal shortly after halftime at the 52-minute mark.
Dani Ceballos and Sergio Ramos were the goal scorers for Spain.
After three games in Group 4 of the A-League, Croatia and England both have four points, while Spain is in the lead with six. A win for Croatia against England on Sunday would secure a spot in the Final Four and continued play in the elite A-League next year.
