Team News: Croatia shuffle pack as Spain remain unchanged in Group D finale

Croatia make five changes ahead of their final Euro 2016 Group D clash against Spain, who remain unchanged, in Bordeaux.

Croatia manager Ante Cacic has made five changes ahead of his side's final Euro 2016 Group D clash against Spain in Bordeaux.

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric and Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic are both missing out through injury, so there are starts for 20-year-old midfielder Marko Rog and 21-year-old forward Marko Pjaca.

Tim Jedvaj, Sime Vrsaljko and Nikola Kalinic also come into Croatia's starting XI as the Blazers seek to leapfrog La Roja into top spot.

Spain boss Vicente del Bosque, meanwhile, resists the temptation to make changes, so his starting XI is the same lineup that has started both of their Group D games at this summer's competition.

Alvaro Morata, who has just re-signed for Real Madrid, leads the attack with support from in-form Nolito and David Silva, while Cesc Fabregas also keeps his spot in the XI despite calls for Koke to be included.

Croatia: Subasic; Srna, Corluka, Jedvaj, Vrsaljko; Perisic, Rog, Rakitic, Badelj; Pjaca, Kalinic

Spain: De Gea; Juanfran, Pique, Ramos, Alba; Busquets, Fabregas, Iniesta; Silva, Morata, Nolito
