Croatia through to quarterfinals after penalty shootout win over Denmark

Croatia through to quarterfinals after penalty shootout win over Denmark

Croatia have beaten Denmark in a penalty shootout to advance to the Fifa World Cup quarterfinals at Russian Federation 2018.

Both keepers excelled in the shootout, with Kasper Schmeichel saving two but Danijel Subasic's three saves confirmed Croatia's passage to the quarter-final stage. He wasn't just an effective attacking outlet, but an extra defender as well.

The Vatreni's brand of energetic free-flowing football, led by metronomic midfield pairing of Ivan Rakotic & Luca Modric has won plenty of plaudits.

"When you have a penalty shootout, normally it's our three best players at taking penalties, but they missed today".

The following 116 minutes though largely failed to live up to the first four, fireworks giving way to a damp squib of an encounter as the game edged inexorably towards extra time and penalties. I think we were the better team in the second half and the extra time.

Rebic has Knudsen on a plate on the right edge for Croatia! What a match this is turning out to be, 2 goals under five minutes.

Marcelo Brozovic can provide stability at the base of midfield, Ivan Perisic is unsafe on the flank and Hoffenheim's Andrej Kramaric is an effective playmaker. Sime Vrsaljko, 6. Dejan Lovren, 21.

Federal judge orders reunification of separated immigrant families

Zlatko Dalic's team won all of their games on the way to running away with Group G but are tasked with overcoming a solid Denmark side, unbeaten thus far in Russian Federation. They found the equaliser nearly straight away, with a spot of luck, as a Danish clearance ricocheted off Andreas Christensen and at the feet of Mario Mandzukic.

Subs: Livakovic, Corluka, Kovacic, Kramaric, Jedvaj, Bradaric, Caleta-Car, Badelj, Pjaca, Pivaric, Lovre Kalinic.

Christian Eriksen - 6 - A more subdued performance from the Tottenham talisman, but always looked menacing with the ball at his feet, as he looked to unlock a stubborn Croatian defence.

Knudsen's long throw-in falls to Thomas Delaney. The Scandinavian side are expected to stick around with Martin Brathwaite ahead of Yussuf Poulsen. Lasse Schone in for Andreas Christensen.

He also praised his fellow goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel for his role with the Danish team.

66' - Substitution: Denmark's Nicolai Jørgensen replaces Andreas Cornelius.

It was important, however, to remember the work of an entire team and the many staff behind them, he said.
