Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 5pm BST. BBC One and BBC One HD will provide live coverage of the match in the UK.

Overview

Czech Republic have to pick themselves up from what was a heartbreaking loss to Spain in their last game. Gerard Pique's goal in the dying minutes of the contest robbed them of a crucial point and the Czech team have to start all over again in a bid to seal their position in the next round.

Tomas Rosicky provided a few moments of brilliance, having started his first game after missing almost the entirety of the league season with an injury for Arsenal, but was substituted soon after conceding the goal. The 35-year-old will be desperate to get some points on the board and is likely to get his second chance against Croatia.

Luka Modric's brilliant strike was the difference between the two sides when they met Turkey in their first group game. The Real Madrid man showed why Croatia are being considered the dark horses in the tournament and a win here will confirm their participation in the next round. The game against Spain on Match Day three will decide who tops the group.
