Euro 2024: Italy Stun Croatia With Late Goal To Reach Last-16 

Mattia Zaccagni was the hero for Italy, as he scored a late-minute goal to seal a last-16 berth and also end Croatia’s dream of qualifying for the knockout stages of Euro 2024.

Recall that the first half had both teams not really showing any form of attacking intent. 

However, in the second half, Luka Modric broke the deadlock as he capitalized on a rebound ball to give Croatia the vital lead.

The goal came just a few minutes after he failed to convert his penalty.

But in the dying moments, Mattia Zaccagni curled in a 98th minute beauty to ensure the reigning European champions will play Switzerland in knock-out round

What a way for Luka Modric to potentially end his Croatia career on his 178th appearance having become the oldest scorer at a Euros at 38 years and 289 days.
