Rangers defender Borna Barisic provided an assist as Croatia came from behind to beat Slovakia 3-1 and reach Euro 2020.

The World Cup finalists will be hoping to leave an impression on next year’s competition, which will see teams travel across all of Europe’s top stadia in a unique Europe wide competition.

The Croatian bombed down the left for the Balkan nation’s third, knocking the ball around the hapless Slovakian right back and putting it in for Ivan Perisic to finish.

Barisic’s assist for Croatia comes at the time when the left-back’s stock continues to rise in Scotland and in Europe.
