Sum up your tournament so far

AH: Things have been going extraordinarily well for Croatia. Despite all the doubt back home and the continuous threat of anti-federation fans who interrupted the game against the Czech Republic (and might try something similar again), the team is playing its best football in years -- and arguably the best of any team at the tournament so...

Croatia's Luka Modric, Mario Mandzukic could be ready vs. Portugal

ESPN FC's Taylor Twellman feels Ivan Perisic may be the man to lead Croatia to the Euro 2016 final.

LENS, France -- Croatia's key players Luka Modric and Mario Mandzukic trained well on Friday and could be ready for at least part of the round-of-16 game against Portugal.

ESPN FC's Taylor Twellman feels Ivan Perisic may be the man to lead Croatia to the Euro 2016 final.

Gareth Bale could not resist getting his dig in. "It's a moral victory for us," he said on Thursday regarding Wales' progress from Group B as winners. "It gives you bragging rights to finish top. It's always nice to get one over on the English."

His delight was understandable, but the wider picture is more intriguing. With England pushed into the lower half of the Euro 2016 draw alongside Spain, France, Italy and Germany, an obvious conclusion is that the inevitable casualties will dilute the...
