Two became three courtesy of a stunning curling strike by Paul Pogba, according to UEFA. Switzerland pulled one back late through another Seferović header and, just when it seemed France had done enough to edge this last-16 thriller, Mario Gavranović rifled a dramatic equaliser from outside the box to force extra time. Mbappé spurned the best chance of the additional 30 minutes and then, after nine successful spot kicks in the shoot-out, it was the Paris striker who was denied by Sommer to seal an unforgettable night for Vladimir Petković's Nati. Player ratings France: Lloris (7), Varane (5), Lenglet (5), Kimpembe (4), Pavard (5), Pogba (9), Kante (6), Rabiot (6), Griezmann (7), Benzema (8), Mbappe (6).
Alvaro Morata netted his fifth goal at the European Championships, becoming Spain's joint-highest scorer in the competition along with Fernando Torres. At 18 years and 215 days, Spain's Pedri became the youngest player to start a knockout game in European Championship history, overtaking the record held by England's Wayne Rooney (18y 244d v Portugal in 2004). What’s Next? Spain will play Switzerland in the Euro 2020 quarter-finals in St Petersburg on Friday July 2, with kick-off at 5pm.

Croatia took the lead against the run of play and in unusual fashion when keeper Unai Simón misjudged Pedri's long-distance back pass. Luis Enrique's side were level before half-time, though, Pablo Sarabia firing in the rebound after Dominik Livaković had parried José Gayà's effort. When César Azpilicueta headed in his first international goal and Ferran Torres finished low past Livaković to double Spain's lead with just 13 minutes left, the game looked to be up. But that was barely the start to this round of 16 epic. Substitute Mislav Oršić scrambled one back for Croatia but it was not until added time that the turnaround was complete. Another replacement, Mario Pašalić met Oršić's pinpoint cross from the left with an emphatic header. Cue mayhem.

It will be difficult but we are dreaming now. " Yann Sommer, Switzerland goalkeeper: "What a match! What an evening of football! It was our chance to finally go through the round of 16 because we never made it before. It's incredible – we played with heart and with character.

We fought until the very end, but they scored from almost every chance and deservedly won.

Then the game turned around and we didn’t have the strength to come back. " Opta stats - Goals galore in Copenhagen Croatia and Spain produced the second-highest-scoring match in European Championship history, after France v Yugoslavia in the 1960 semi-finals (5-4 to Yugoslavia).

It would have been 4-3 Croatia just six minutes into extra time had Unai Simón not somehow kept out Andrej Kramarić's effort – a moment of redemption that proved a turning point. Álvaro Morata was next to turn his fortunes round when, with 100 minutes on the clock, he controlled Dani Olmo's cross and rifled into the net. From another Olmo centre, his fellow subtitute Mikel Oyarzabal restored the two-goal Spanish cushion which had felt a lifetime ago, according to UEFA.

Photo: Getty Images Kingsley Coman's introduction at the break instigated a change of shape for Les Bleus but it was the shift in their fortunes that proved more telling. Lloris altered the momentum, brilliantly saving Ricardo Rodríguez's penalty after Benjamin Pavard's foul on Steven Zuber, and France took full advantage. Mbappé slipped in Karim Benzema to clip in the equaliser and the Real Madrid forward nodded in two minutes later after Yann Sommer had parried Antoine Griezmann's shot.
