Defending champions Spain advanced to the quarterfinals of the European Championship following their narrow 1-0 win over Croatia on Monday.

Vicente del Bosque’s men dominated possession and eventually scored the goal they needed

Having come on for Fernando Torres in the second-half, Sevilla striker Jesus Navas broke the offside trap after former Gunner Cesc Fabregas lobbed the ball over a napping Croatian defense and Andres Iniesta provided the final pass.
