A 1/8 final match between the national teams of Spain and Croatia took place at the European Championship. 

It was an extra-ordinary, eight-goal match that ended with a 5-3 victory for Spain. A bizarre goal gave Croats the lead, then Spain fought back to lead 3-1. Two late goals from the Croats forced extra-time. However, from there on, it was Spain who scored twice in three minutes to secure victory.

In the Euro quarterfinals, Spain will play with the winner of the Switzerland - France pair.

Thorgan Hazard scored the winning goal in the 42nd minute. Hazard’s swerving shot from outside the area left Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patrício wrong-footed and late to swat the ball away.

Belgium will next face Italy in the quarterfinals on Friday in Munich.
