Russian Federation vs Croatia Prediction

Russian Federation vs Croatia Prediction

Rakitic stepped up to score the winning kick and earn his country a place in the semi-finals for the first time since 1998.

Denis Cheryshev's swerving left-footer from the edge of the box had opened the scoring for Russian Federation in the 31st minute of normal time but an unmarked Andrej Kramaric headed in a cross from Mario Mandzukic eight minutes later to restore parity.

"One of the most important tasks for our team is to contain Modric, because he is a leading player in the Croatian team".

On Saturday night in Sochi, Grabar-Kitarovic's red-and-white check shirt was initially concealed beneath a piercing red pantsuit, and the opening exchange of goals as celebrated by handshakes with Russia's prime minister Dmitry Medvedev, who was sitting one place away, with Federation Internationale de Football Association head Gianni Infantino between them.

Croatia also came through the last round on penalties after drawing with Denmark.

He may have lost the match but managed to win love and respect of everyone. "We are just blessed to have him". "It's very sad for Portugal though". "We know it's a special game for us, I don't know for him".

Domagoj Vida had scored earlier for Croatia in extra to take the lead after the two played to a 1-1 draw through 90 minutes.

With just six minutes left of extra time Fernandes headed the hosts level from a free kick on the edge of the area after a handball and the game went to penalties.

Despite enjoying a strong tournament, the Barcelona veteran was left on the bench for the clash but did replace David Silva with 20 minutes of normal time remaining.

The hosts have surprised everyone at this World Cup and will look to continue that.

Croatia hadn't advanced this far at the World Cup since the 1998 World Cup, which was its first appearance.
