Croatia headed into their game against Austria knowing a win would secure them a spot in next summer's finals, regardless of other scores. Luka Modric firing them ahead after just six minutes was the perfect start.
That perfect start came crashing down three minutes later, with Christoph Baumgartner responding by heading in a cross from Marcel Sabitzer for 1-1. The equaliser took the sting out of the visitors, who now sat second in the group and out of the finals as things stood, with Denmark ahead against France.
However, they perked up later on and Marko Livaja headed in with little over to 20 minutes to play, putting them back in the driving seat once again. A quickfire third from Dejan Lovren just three minutes after the second took the wind of out Austria, securing the win and the place in the finals for Croatia.
