Luis de la Fuente's Spain thrashed Zlatko Dalić's Croatia by 3-0 in the third game of the  UEFA Euro 2024 at the Olympiastadion Berlin in Germany on 15th June, Saturday. 

Spain, who were coming from huge victories in the friendlies, continued their form in the group stage as well. Morata was the first one to score for them while Fabian Ruiz and Carvajal extended their lead in the first half itself. In the second half, though Croatia were awarded a penalty, the goal from Petkovic was denied due to an encroachment. 

In this Spain vs Croatia game, Spain's Lamine Yamal became the youngest ever to play and assist in the European Championships. Along with him, Morata also created history by becoming the third-highest goalscorer in Euro history.
