Spain fans – Look away now! What on earth has goalkeeper Unai Simon done!

Currently playing in a tense round of 16 tie against heavy favourites Spain, Croatia, led by Luka Modric, have stolen a crucial lead.

In dramatic circumstances, following a fairly powerful backpass, goalkeeper Simon failed to get the ball under control as it flew past him and into the back of his own net.

Still with the majority of the game to go, Spain will know they need to get back on level terms but make no mistake, this own goal will be a massive confidence blow.
