Republic of Ireland v Croatia
Football - International. Republic of Ireland v Croatia (Kick-off 7.45pm). Adrian Chiles presents coverage from the Municipal Stadium Poznan in Poland, where the Group C teams play their opening match of the tournament. The Irish are appearing at a major tournament for the first time since the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea, and only their second-ever European Championship, having made their debut in 1988. Jack Charlton was in charge on that occasion, and though he could not lead his team beyond the group stage, he did inspire them to a memorable 1-0 victory over England, with a solitary goal from Ray Houghton proving to be enough. They begin this campaign with a tricky encounter against Croatia, who are participating in their fourth European Championship, a fact that is all the more remarkable considering they have only been eligible for the past five. Head coach Slaven Bilic has already announced his departure from the national team following this competition, and will hope to sign off on a positive note. The sides have met on six occasions, and Croatia have only won once, although five of those meetings have been in Dublin. Plus, highlights of the earlier fixture between Spain and Italy. With commentary by Peter Drury and Jim Beglin, and analysis by Roy Keane, Gareth Southgate and Jamie Carragher.
