WATCH: Ivan Rakitic's cheeky chip puts Croatia 2-0 over Czech Republic

Barcelona stars keep showing out on the international stage during this busy summer. This time it's Ivan Rakitic's turn to make the highlight reel. The Croatian gave his country a 2-0 lead in their Euro 2016 match-up against the Czech Republic on Friday.

After being played in by a teammate, the Barca midfielder kept his composure and dinked his finish over Petr Cech's head for a great goal and to double the lead to 2-0.

Croatia look to be on course for their second win of the group stage in as many tries and will lock up a spot in the knockout stage. They'll be battling it out with Spain for top spot in the group when the two countries face off next week.

It'll be very interesting to see Rakitic going up against several of his Barcelona teammates in that one.

Do you think Spain are the favorites or are Croatia good enough to overtake them? Let us know in the comments.
