Modric stunner launches Croatia

Luka Modric gave dominant Croatia a 1-0 victory over Turkey with a stunning volley, but they also hit the bar twice in Paris.

Croatia therefore currently lead Group D, as Spain and the Czech Republic play tomorrow.

These sides famously clashed in the Euro 2008 quarter-final, which saw Turkey go through on penalties after a 1-1 draw, and Croatia took revenge by winning the Euro 2012 play-off 3-0 on aggregate. There were five Serie A players in the Croatian XI, while new Inter full-back Caner Erkin featured for Fatih Terim’s men.

Lazio want Turkey boss Terim

Lazio could look to Turkey boss Fatih Terim as their Coach for next season, according to Il Tempo newspaper.

The Rome-based publication suggests Terim could be prepared to have a third stab at Serie A football after spells at Fiorentina and Milan.

The 62-year-old tactician was at Fiorentina from July 2000 to February 2001, fired after a row with then-patron Vittorio Cecchi-Gori.

He then had an even shorter experience at Milan from July to November 2001, eventually sacked to make way for Carlo Ancelotti.

Hamsik fires Slovakia to Euros

Napoli’s Marek Hamsik got a double, as Slovakia confirmed their place at Euro 2016.

The Slovakians only needed to match Ukraine’s result to be sure of sealing a spot in the tournament, and secured a nervy 4-2 win.

Hamsik opened the scoring following a pass from Vladimir Weiss, who later provided assists for Adam Nemec and Robert Mak.

The Repre seemed to be cruising to France, but were made to sweat by second-half goals from Mario Mutsch and Lars Gerson. However, captain Hamsik put the result beyond doubt with a fourth in injury time.
