Italy take on Croatia on Thursday 14th June, 2012, with kickoff at 17:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC1.
Although Spain didnâ€™t start in a very attacking formation the Italians ended up playing their hearts out for the draw they got against the World and European champions, and will have been very pleased with the result. Croatia have already made it clear that Ireland are the group whipping boys, so Italy will know this game will be a tricky encounter for them.
With that in mind you can expect to see a slightly more attacking outlook from the Italians, but also an optimistic and enthusiastic display from Croatia. This can only bode well for a good game of football.
