Group leaders Czech Republic failed to build on their win against Scotland on Monday as they could only manage a draw in their second group game against Croatia.
Former Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren was on the wrong end of a controversial penalty after he challenged Patrik Schick. The Scotland slayer drew blood from the challenge with the Croatian and Carlos del Cerro went to the VAR monitor before concluding that the 31-year-old had used an elbow against the striker.
Schick, with blood smeared across his face, stepped up and sent Dominik Livakovic the wrong way to make it three already at Euro 2020.
Shortly after the break, a piece of brilliance from Ivan Perisic brought the game level. The 32-year-old became the first Croatian to score at four major tournaments as the Inter Milan winger jinked inside and rifled his effort into the top right corner.
There was no room for Dominic Calvert-Lewin or Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson in Gareth Southgate's squad as Jordan Pickford starts in goal.

What do England need after tonight's result to qualify for the next round?
Unfortunately England were also unable to make it two wins from two against Scotland on Friday evening.
Gareth Southgate's side were held by a spiriting Scottish display as Harry Kane was substituted late on having failed to create many chances for his side to take the lead.
A win for the Three Lions would have secured qualification but now Group D is wide open for anyone to progress onto the next round or indeed win the group.
Should they finish Group winners, they will face the runners-up from Group F, which features Portugal, Hungary, Germany and France, also known as the 'Group of Death'.

There is still a possibility amongst England 's opponents for a third-best placed team progression, however, they would need to be amongst the top four and if history repeats itself pick up at least three points.
Czech Republic now have four points and the Croatians picked up their first point of the tournament with one game left.
England v Scotland ending in a draw means they are now level on points with the Czechs but second on goal difference, who they face in their last group game next week. A win for either secures qualification and the group.
Scotland would need to win, and hope England lose with a three goal swing to overtake them in the table, but Steve Clarke's side overall need to win, if possible to nil, to help their chances of progressing as one of the four third-best placed teams.
