Elsewhere, England broke their opening Euro match jinx after beating Croatia 1-0 by courtesy of Raheem Sterling's goal in London's Wembley Stadium.

The hosts caught a bright start as Phil Foden rattled the woodwork and Kalvin Phillips unleashed a dangerous volley in the opening stages. England's pace fell off as the match progressed whereas Croatia gained a foothold into the contest without doing damage.

England eventually snatched the winner at the hour mark when Sterling benefitted from Phillip's defense-splitting through ball to beat Croatia's goalkeeper Dominik Livkovic.
