Euro 2016: First-half Croatian volley sinks Turkey


A poor first-half clearance proved costly for Turkey in the national side’s Euro 2016 Group D opener in Paris on Sunday.

Croatia broke the deadlock in Parc des Princes on the 41st minute as Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric seized on a high penalty-box clearance from Selcuk Inan and fired in a long-range volley to beat Turkish goalkeeper Volkan Babacan.

Croatia remained dangerous throughout the match, with right back and team captain Darijo Srna´s free kick in 52nd minute and winger Ivan Perisic´s header in 72nd minute both hitting the Turkish crossbar.

Turkey´s best chance was missed by midfielder Ozan Tufan in the 29th minute when his effort was stopped by Croatian ‘keeper Danijel Subasic on the line.

Having lost against 1-0 against Croatia, Turkey looks ahead to Spain in the upcoming Group D match on June 17 in Nice.

Title contenders Spain will play their first Euro 2016 match against the Czech Republic on Monday in Toulouse.

The other Group D match will kick-off at 3 p.m. local time in France (1300 GMT).
