What Mateo Kovacic told Azpilicueta at euro 2020 match

 Azpilicueta scored one of five Spain goals in a thrilling encounter in Copenhagen.

Spain reached the quarter-finals of the European Championships on Monday night after they edged a battling Croatia side in extra-time.

La Furia Roja looked comfortable and poised to cruise through when they took a 3-1 lead in the 77th minute, but after two late goals from Mislav Orsic and Mario Pasalic, the Croatians forced extra-time.

Spain went onto score twice in time added on to survive a huge scare and book their place in the last eight of the competition.

In what was a fascinating game for the neutral spectator, Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta, who is always an unlikely scorer, managed to find the net with a header early on in the second-half, a goal that put the Spaniards 2-1 up at the time.

And the defender has been congratulated for his goal, as well as winning the game, by Blues teammate and Croatian midfielder, Mateo Kovacic.

When quizzed about whether there he was messaged by any of his teammates after scoring, Azpilicueta said: “No, no (laughs),” he told Marca.

“I spoke with Mateo (Kovacic) before the game and then he congratulated me and that’s it.”
