0

Croatia and team England will Champion their side of play on the field tomorrow, Wednesday July 11 to secure place of FINALS at the FIFA World Cup 2018.

Ivan Rakitic scored a decisive spot-kick as Croatia beat hosts Russia 4-3 on penalties to book a World Cup semi-final date with England.

After extra time ended with the score level at 2-2, goalkeeper Danijel Subasic was Croatia’s penalty hero, denying Fedor Smolov before Mario Fernandes fired wide.

Team Croatia cut short the dream of team Russia to host and win, winning over them on penalty play.

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

In a dramatic match, Russia had taken the lead through Denis Cheryshev’s exceptional finish, the Villarreal player starting the move before finishing from outside the area after Artem Dzyuba’s pass.

Former Leicester City striker Andrej Kramaric equalised after Mario Mandzukic had been afforded too much space to cross before the both teams were forced to settle for extra time for the second successive game at the tournament.

Harry Kane and his team mates on the other side are ready in terms of preparation to secure the final play.

Croatia thought they had won it when Domagoj Vida struck from a corner in the 100th minute only for Fernandes to force penalties with a dramatic headed equaliser.
