Spain are through to the knock-out stage, but only as second in their group after a 0-0 draw against Croatia in the last group game. Having won their first two matches, the East Europeans rested several of their key players. However despite having most of the play Santi Denia side couldn’t find the route to goal, Villalaba and Olmo going close before the break, and Aleña and Villalba coming up against keeper Nevistic either side of half time. Cucurella had to clear off the line from Majic in the dying minutes, but with Austria and Bulgaria drawing in the other group, even a defeat would have taken Spain through. Second place has its price though, as their opponents in the next round will almost certainly be the all-powerful Germany.
