MOST COMMENTED

[AUSTRIA-CROATIA REPORT CARD] After a fourth-minute penalty kick converted by Luka Modric, it looked like it would be a blowout for Croatia, but it had to hang on for a 1-0 win over host Austria that was scrappy but ultimately lacking in ideas. Soccer America's Paul Kennedy grades the players.
