Croatia have won their second match at Euro 2008, against tournament favorites Germany. Bilic’ men achieved an impressive 2-1 result.

Dario Srna opened the score from close range in the 24th minute, and the Germans lacked the inspiration to do something back in the remainder of the first half.

And just after the hour mark, Lehmann deflected a cross onto the post and the ball ended up in front of Ivica Olic who easily doubled Croatia’s lead.

Lukas Podolski struck home in the 79th minute to bring back some hope but the Croatians remained calm and avoided further chances.

Substitute Bastian Schweinsteiger became the first player to be red-carded at this tournament after pushing Leko in stoppage time.
