Highlights Russia 2-2 Croatia(3-4) penalties July 07 2018

Luka Modric was the man of the match as Croatia ended Russia‘s World Cup hopes in another penalty shootout on Saturday to advance to a semi-final against England.

Ivan Rakitic scored the winning spot-kick in Sochi at the end of a draining and roller-coaster last-eight clash that finished 2-2 after extra time.

Brazilian-born Mario Fernandes kept Russia’s dream alive when he headed home in the 115th minute to level the scores and force penalties, but he and Fedor Smolov both failed to convert their spot-kicks and Croatia won the shootout 4-3

Denis Cheryshev had put Russia in front in the first half but Andrej Kramaric and Domagoj Vida scored for Croatia before the late leveller from Fernandes.
