EURO2008: Germany Suffers Loss vs Croatia, 2-1

Croatia claimed a deserved victory over pre-tournament favourites Germany to claim a place in the Euro 2008 quarter-finals. Darijo Srna scored the first goal in the 24th minute when he beat Marcell Jansen to Danijel Pranjic's cross and hit home. Croatia were gifted a second goal on the 63rd minute when Ivan Rakitic's cross came off Lukas Podolski and bounced off the post for Ivica Olic to tap in. Podolski sent in a goal with a late drive but Bastian Schweinsteiger's red card ended German hopes in injury time. Videos of the goals below.

1-0 Darijo Srna 24"
