Defending champions Spain on Monday beat Croatia 1-0, ending Balkan
dreams of a Euro 2012 knock-out berth, as Italy ran out 2-0 winners
against the Republic of Ireland to qualify in second spot in Group C.
Vicente Del Bosque and Slaven Bilic's sides were goalless in Gdansk at
halftime in a lacklustre affair from which Spain only needed a draw to
top the group and go through.
But with Italy leading in the other game, top spot for La Roja looked
uncertain until substitute Jesus Navas linked up with Barcelona's Andres
Iniesta and the Sevilla man crashed the ball into an empty net as the
Croatian defence looked on.
