Italy became the second country to book their ticket to the next round of UEFA EURO 2016 after snatching a 1-0 victory over Sweden on Friday 17 June. Spain followed them a few hours later by roundly beating Turkey 3-0. In the interim, Croatia came agonisingly close to qualifying for the last 16 themselves, only to let a two-goal lead slip in the last quarter of an hour of an entertaining 2-2 draw with Czech Republic.
