Uzbekistan top Group F after securing a 1-1 draw with Croatia at the Under-20 World Cup this evening.

Croatia and Uzbekistan have played out a 1-1 draw at the Under-20 World Cup in Turkey.

Uzbekistan made a strong start to the match, creating several chances in the opening 30 minutes before taking the lead through Sardor Rakhmanov, who tapped in from a free kick.

Uzbekistan made a series of fouls to give their opponents free kicks from a number of dangerous positions, but goalkeeper Asilbek Amanov made some good saves to protect his team's lead.

Oliver Zelenika had to be alert at the start of the second half, as Uzbekistan pushed to double their advantage.

However, some fresh legs gave Croatia an injection of pace, with substitute Kruno Ivancic helping to set up Marko Livaja's equaliser in the 65th minute.

Both keepers had to make saves late on but neither side could find a winner, leaving Uzbekistan at the top of Group F on goal difference.
