89' Third and final sub for Nigeria
Nigeria makes their final change of the match, with John Obi Mikel leaving and being replaced by Simeon Nwankwo.
88' Another chance for Moses
Victor Moses corrals a loose ball in the box but he looks to have taken one extra touch, as the ball slips just a bit too far away from his feet, and that extra space allows the Croatian defense to close down and block the shot wide of goal
85' Third and final sub for Croatia
Marko Pjaca enters the match, replacing Mario Mandzukic. That was Croatia's final sub of the match.
82' Subasic skies for the save
Danijel Subasic leaps up high to grab a floating header from Leon Balogun. The header didn't have enough pace to make the Croatian keeper sweat too much but he makes the save.
79' Uzoho makes a great diving punch on Perisic's cross
A great diving punch by Francis Uzoho keeps this match at 2-0. Ivan Perisic sent in a great outswinging cross from the left wing that curls right at the edge of the six-yard box. But the loose ball in the middle of the box is cleared away by the scrambling Nigerian defense before a Croatian player can run it down.
78' Croatia's second sub
Ante Rebic leaves the match and is replaced by Mateo Kovacic in the 78th minute for Croatia's second sub of the match. They have one remaining.

73' Croatia sensing weakness

71' And Modric converts the penatly
And Luka Modric converts the penalty kick. Modric calmly slides the ball into the bottom left corner of the net, past Francis Uzoho, who dove the wrong way. The penalty kick gives Croatia a 2-0 lead here in the 73rd minute.
70' PENALTY!!!!!!
We have a penalty kick coming here in Kaliningard. After a corner kick by Croatia, William Ekong grabs Mario Mandzukic around the shoulders and pulls him down inside the box. Along with the penalty kick coming, Ekong is shown a yellow card.
66' Contact in the box but no foul called
After a great give and go between Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel that allows Moses to get a run into the box but he falls somewhat easily to the turf after some contact from a Croatian defender. However the referee waves off any foul and the ball rolls out for a goal kick.
63' Another header goes wide
Off the corner kick by Ivan Rakitic, Mario Mandzukic gets a head to it but is unable to send it on goal and the header goes wide left of net. Croatia is still looking for their first shot on goal.
62' Nigeria Sub

61' Croatian Sub
Marcelo Brozovic enters the match, replacing Andrej Kramaric. This was Croatia's first sub of the match.
59' First shot on goal goes to Nigeria
Odion Ighalo records the match's first shot on goal thanks to his header off a cross by teammate Brian Idowu from the left wing. Danijel Subasic picks up the bouncing header just off his line with ease.
55' Croatia nearly strikes again but is ruled offsides
A brilliant attack by Croatia after taking the ball away from Nigeria nearly gives Croatia a second goal. Ivan Perisic sent in a great cross from the left wing but Ante Rebic is ruled offsides. It was really close though, however Rebic's shot went over the crossbar.
54' Nigeria controlling tempo thus far
Nigeria has come out of the locker room and has been on the attack since the whistle. Croatia has been up to the task of keeping Nigeria out of the net for the moment but they have not been able to keep possession for very long, seemingly more content to send long balls forward.
51' Croatia foul gives Nigeria a set piece chance
Mario Mandzukic catches Oghenekaro Etebo from behind in the attacking half, giving Nigeria a set piece chance from over 30 yards out. The kick rattles around the box before a foul is called on Nigeria, allowing Croatia to clear the danger.
49' Victor Moses taking control of the match
Victor Moses takes on Ivan Strinic one-on-one down the left wing, and puts a low shot between Strinic's legs but the shot goes wide left of goal. Neither team has recorded a shot on goal, though there have been several chances for both sides.
47' Nigeria gains half's first corner
Victor Moses takes a corner kick from the right side, a great outswinging ball, and a charging Leon Balogun nearly ties this match up but his header goes high and over the bar after being deflected by a defender.
46' And we are back for the second half
The second half is underway in Kaliningrad. Neither side made any changes to the lineup at halftime, so they both have all three subs available to them.
45' And that's the first half
The referee has blown the whistle, and the first half has come to a close with Croatia leading 1-0 thanks to a own goal by Oghenekaro Etebo in the 32nd minute.
45' Two minutes of stoppage time
Two minutes of stoppage time has been added to the first half.
45' Iwobi's shot blocked by Lovren
Alex Iwobi finds the loose ball at the top of the box following the Victor Moses' free kick, and lets a bullet loose but Dejan Lovren is there and blocks the low drive clear of danger.
45' Croatian foul sets up Nigerian free kick just outside the box
Ante Rebic fouls Victor Moses just outside the Croatian box to give Nigeria a great chance to even things up right at the end of the half.
42' Another shot goes wide for Croatia
Sime Vrsaljko launches his shot well wide of goal after getting set up brilliantly by a long ball attack from his midfield. The long ball from the center circle was headed down by Mario Mandzukic and then passed across to the charging Sime Vrsaljko but the defender's shot was well wide of target. Croatia has been having some success with these long ball attacks from the mid-field.
39' Header goes inches high!!!!
An excellent cross by Ivan Rakitic curls right to the penatly spot and the ball is headed toward the net by Andrej Kramaric but it is just high enough to go over the crossbar.
37' Croatia counter attacks
A nice break out by Croatia sets up the counter attack but the cross by Croatia is much too long and goes out for the throw-in. Nigeria needs to be careful as they have started pressuring higher up the pitch trying to break down the Croatian defense.
32' GOAL!!!!!!!
CROATIA LEADS 1-0!!!!! On a brilliant corner kick by Luka Modric, the ball is headed toward the back post by Mario Mandzukic and then it is defelcted by a accidental back heel by Oghenekaro Etebo and the ball trickles into the back of the net for the goal.
30' Yellow Card
Ivan Rakitic fouls Victor Moses in the midfield, late and from behind, and is shown the match's first card. Moses, the Chelsea midfielder, is slow to get back to his feet but gathers himself and the match continues.
29' Both Croatia and Nigeria continuing to feel each other out
After a few minutes of early up and down play, this match has slowed down for both sides as Croatia and Nigeria try to find holes in the other team's defense shape. Croatia has had the better opportunities thus far but none of them have been truly special.
27' Cross by Perisic results in foul by teammate Rebic
Ivan Perisic sends a nice outswining cross from outside the box but as Ante Rebic tries to bring the ball down in the box, he fouls Oghenekaro Etebo and Nigeria is able to clear the ball out of danger.
22' Nigeria gets their first corner kick
A nice run by Nigeria sets up their first corner kick. On the resulting corner kick, Nigeria gets a couple of chances to send a shot on goal but in the end Oghenekaro Etebo sends a shot wide right of goal.
19' Foul in attacking half sets up free kick chance for Croatia
Leon Balogun fouls Andrej Kramaric about 30 yards out from goal setting up Croatia for a free kick opportunity. Croatia captain Luka Modric takes the free kick, lofting a cross toward the back post but Nigerian keeper Francis Uzoho gets there first and catches the cross.
17' Another Croatian corner kick
Another attack by Croatia down the left wing results in a Croatian corner kick. The kick is swung in from the left but right to the feet of a Nigerian defender and the ball is cleared away from danger but out for a Croatian throw-in.
16' Croatia taking aim on the young Nigerian keeper
Croatia comes right back after Ivan Perisic just misses high with another long range shot by Andrej Kramaric but his shot goes low and wide left of the net. The Nigerian keeper Francis Uzoho is only 19 years old, and thus far has done well.
14' Croatian counter attack
A brilliant passing sequence sets up Ivan Perisic with a great chance on goal at the top of the box. But Perisic just misses high over the crossbar. Croatia's midfield really set up that opportunity brilliantly down the left wing, something to watch moving forward in this match.
12' Nigeria's speed is for real
Nigeria's speed is for real. John Obi Mikel wrestles the ball away from Luka Modric down the near wing and sends in a brilliant cross but the Croatian keeper Danijel Subasic comes off his line and catches the cross.
9' Corner Kick opportunity falls short
Croatia's first corner kick doesn't bring about any shot or chance on goal, as the cross is headed clear of the box by Nigeria and then Victor Moses is fouled trying to counter attack in the defensive half of the pitch.
8' Long ball brings up match's first corner
A long ball by Croatia is headed away from danger by Nigeria but it goes out for the match's first corner kick.
6' Croatia controlling possession early
Through the first six minutes of the match, the veteran Croatian side has controlled most of the possession thus far. However the speed of the Nigerian side has been up to the task to disrupt any Croatian attack early on.
3' Croatia's first chance
Croatia takes a quick free kick down the far wing and as they try to cross the ball into the box, the Nigerian defense collapses back and clears the ball away from danger.
1' Game on!!
And the match is underway. Nigeria has first touch and is moving right to left in their forest green unifroms while Croatia is wearing their customary red and white checkerboard kits.
