Croatia pipped Spain to first place in Group D at Euro 2016 after Ivan Perisic struck a late winner in a 2-1 victory on Tuesday.

Croatia goalkeeper Danijel Subasic saved a second-half penalty from Sergio Ramos after Nikola Kalinic had cancelled out Alvaro Morata's early opener on the stroke of half-time.

Turkey must wait to see if they qualify for the tournament's knockout stages after beating the Czech Republic 2-0 in Lens.

Burak Yilmaz volleyed Turkey into a 10th-minute lead in Lens with Ozan Tufan lashing home a second on 65 minutes to give Turkey their first points of the tournament.

Turkey's victory ensured that Northern Ireland, who lost 1-0 to Germany earlier, go through to the knockout phase as one of the four best third-place teams.
