Wales went into the second half level with the visitors - who took just nine minutes to go in front.

Daniel James required treatment after a clash with Domagoj Vida appeared to leave him briefly motionless on the ground, but the Manchester United winger eventually returned to his feet and was able to continue.

Gareth Bale benefited from some determined work by Ben Davies to put Wales on the board in first-half stoppage time.

Ethan Ampadu was replaced by Joe Morrell almost immediately into the second half after he collided with Bruno Petković. Ampadu was taken off the pitch and required medical treatment.

Joe Allen earned a costly yellow card as he sought to halt a Croatia counter-attack, meaning he will miss Wales' trip to Azerbaijan next month, while Luka Modric limped off after stopping Harry Wilson in his tracks.

Bale was also moving gingerly in the closing stages, which limited Wales' attacking threat as the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
