Ireland 1-3 Croatia – Highlights

Republic of Ireland face an uphill battle to reach the Euro 2012 quarter-finals after being outclassed 3-1 by Croatia in their Group C opener at the Stadion Miejski in Poznan.

Goals from Mario Mandzukic (3), Nikica Jelavic (43) and an unfortunate Shay Given own goal (48) completed a comfortable win for Slaven Bilic’s side, who were easy on the eye for much of the night as they dominated possession.

They could probably have won by more against an Irish side who lacked the necessary technique to live with their opponents.
