FIFA World Cup 2018, Russia vs Croatia highlights: Croatia beat Russia 4-3 on penalties, through to semi-finals

Russia vs Croatia, FIFA World Cup 2018 highlights: Ivan Rakitic was the man who finally put this to bed. Russia and Croatia were locked in a battle in which both sides simply weren’t giving up. Denis Cheryshev scored a belter to put Russia ahead and leave the Croatians shell-shocked. But the visitors responded soon and Andrej Kramaric headed in an equaliser. All this was in the first half and the second-half turned out to be a pulsating but ultimately goalless affair. Domagoj Vida then scored the goal that gave Croatia the lead in extra time but Mario Fernandes equalised for Russia in the second period and forced the match into penalties. Both Danijel Subasic and Igor Akinfeev made saves but Hernades missed his shot and Rakitic converted the final kick to send Croatia through. (Reuters )
