Croatia makes it to Euro 2012

BY foxsports • November 15, 2011

Croatia claimed a place at the 2012 European Championship after a goalless draw against Turkey in the second leg of their playoffs on Tuesday.

Croatia had a comfortable 3-0 lead from the first leg last Friday and Turkey never looked like overcoming it.

Turkey attacked from the very start, trying to set the pace. Colin Kazim Richards almost scored in the fifth minute after Umut Bulut had hit the post.

The attempt was a shock to the Croats, who appeared vulnerable for a while in the first half, but later picked up the pace and created a number of chances of their own.
