Croatia defeated Turkey one goal to nil in a keenly contested EURO 2016 match.
Luka Modric scored a sensational long-range volley as Croatia deservedly opened their Euro 2016 campaign with victory over Turkey in Paris.
Modric struck towards the end of the first half and his team created numerous chances to extend their lead as they dominated after the interval but Turkey keeper Volkan Babacan made several good saves as Croatia won the first match of a tough group that includes Spain and the Czech Republic.
Meanwhile the Union of European Football Associations has threatened to disqualify England and Russia from Euro 2016 if there is any further violence by fans.
It has begun disciplinary proceedings against Russia – but not England – after what it described as totally unacceptable” scenes at Saturday’s England-Russia game.
Footage appeared to show Russia fans rush at England supporters after the Euro 2016 one all draw in Marseille.
UEFA said charges against Russia are for crowd disturbances, racist behaviour, and setting off fireworks.
