Spain have taken the lead over Croatia, with Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta finding the back of the net.

Croatia took the lead after a horror error from Spain goalkeeper Unai Simon allowed a Pedri backpass to nestle in the back of his own net.

The two sides headed into the half-time break level, with Pablo Sarabia having scored the equaliser not long before the break.

With Spain having dominated the contest throughout, you figured it was only a matter of time before La Roja scored again – but few would have expected it to come from Cesar Azpilicueta.

The Chelsea skipper, who had his hands on the Champions League trophy just shy of a month ago, has now netted his first goal for his country, rounding off a pretty successful 30 days.

Who knows why Azpilicueta found himself in the centre-forward position, but Spain will be thankful that he was there. A superb header!
