Gianluigi Buffon was left irate after Croatia punished Italy's "only mistake of the game" to draw 1-1 on Thursday, with their future now potentially hinging on results elsewhere.

Italy were left feeling short-changed after dominating much of their UEFA EURO 2012 Group C game against Croatia and taking a lead through Andrea Pirlo, only for Mario Mand×ukić to punish their only real blunder of the match to plunder a share of the points at the Municipal Stadium Poznan.

Gianluigi Buffon, Italy goalkeeper
I" think we played very well, trying everything to win the game. We feel we will qualify if we manage to win the last game against Ireland. Unfortunately we should have scored more goals when we created a few chances in the first half. It's a pity because we played really well in defence but they punished our only mistake of the game. However, I feel I can say that we are playing well – we just need to be more clinical and try to kill games when we have the chance."
