Jesus Navas put an emphatic exclamation point on Spain's succesful run through the group stage as they advance past Croatia into the Euro 2012 quarters. Reach for the goal Spain accomlished what they needed to, securing a place in the quarter finals in a hard fought, 1-0 win over Croatia. I like Iker! Iker Casillas was there when his team needed him most, making several crucial saves to preserve his teams win and allow Spain to advance. Where theres smoke... Croatian fans were behind their team the whole tournament, but alas, they will head home dissapointed despite and impressive showing from their club. Head games Spain outlasted Croatia in a grueling chess match, and eventually scored the winner in the 88th minute to advance. Giving their all Croatia was just minutes from a draw with Spain and moving on to the quarters, but an 88th minute goal proved the back breaker.
