Croatia Are Through To The Semi-Finals After A Penalty Shootout

World Cup 2018 Russia vs Croatia Preview Croatia Boast Better Record Russia Look For Another Upset

There was joy for Dejan Lovren as Croatia set up a World Cup semi-final with England after a dramatic penalty shootout win over Russian Federation on Saturday night.

However, it was Russia's Denis Cheryshev to cannon a clear shot in one of the counter attacks into the upper corner of the Croatian net to open the score on the 31st minute of the game.

Croatia will next play England in the semifinals on Wednesday in Moscow.

The regulation time ended 2-2 before Croatia sealed their qualification to the last four of the tournament winning on penalties.

On paper Croatia should dominate the game, as they're ranked number 20 compared to Russia's 70th place, but you can never underestimate the effect of a home crowd.

Modric, who is 32, has scored two goals at the World Cup so far and saw his extra-time penalty saved by Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel before beating him in the penalty shootout. The English team defeated Sweden 2-0.

Croatia is the first team to win consecutive penalty shootouts since Argentina in 1990 and it's the first time the host country has lost in a shootout since Italy in the same year.

Croatia appeared to have the tie in the bag after Vida's extra-time goal until Fernandes rose to head in a free kick and send both teams to their second penalty shootout of the tournament. Igor Akinfeev later blocked an attempt from Mateo Kovacic.

Mario Mandzukic ran unchallenged into the penalty area and chipped a low ball back into the centre where unmarked Kramaric scored with a glancing header.
