translated from Spanish: England and Croatia sealed their passage to the knockout stages of the Euro

England, who were playing on Tuesday the honour and pride of being first in the group, achieved the goal by beating the Czech Republic in another weak game of the ‘Three Lions’ saved by a goal from Raheem Sterling (0-1). The English, warned by the boos in the previous encounters and by a game that has not just taken off, took the pressure off with a fast and dull triumph, but that serves to pass first in the group, escape speculation and ensure their presence at Wembley in the knockout stages. Gareth Southgate’s side had no doubt as to whether first or second place was better. They came out to win. As against Scotland, they hit the post at the first change, this time not because of a header from John Stones, but because of a run to the back of Sterling’s defence that capped city’s with a high shot that crashed into the woodwork and went into the goal. In the other group match, Croatia accounted for Scotland 3-1 and scored in the next phase of the continental competition, as well as four points and goal difference to Czech Republic, but remain with the advantage of more goals converted. The match began with the Croatians’ lead with Vlasic’s goal in the 17th minute and ended tied at 1 in the first half thanks to McGregor’s goal in the 42. Almost 20 minutes into the second leg, Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric stepped up and Ivan Perisic increased to 77 with the goal that meant direct qualification. With four units, while Czech Republic aspires to be one of the best third to be installed in the second round of the tournament.
