Livescore: Result of Russian Federation vs Croatia

Host nation Russian Federation has cooled off a bit since starting the World Cup with two commanding victories, but a penalty shootout win over Spain has Russian Federation among the tournament's final eight teams. "Really", The Washington Post said, despite the fact that it is a very small country, Croatia is famous for their 15 fantastic players in the world's strongest clubs. It's the first time we're in the quarterfinals in a very long time. "We have succeeded I believe, but it's time to take a step forward".

Croatia are also just the second team to advance through two back-to-back World Cup knockout games after trailing.

Croatia will now face England in the last four for a place in the final. Igor Akinfeev later blocked an attempt from Mateo Kovacic.

- Croatia are just the second side to progress on a penalty shootout in consecutive knockout games in a World Cup tournament after Argentina in 1990.

Ivan Rakitic scored the deciding penalty after a 2-2 draw. It goes to extra time.

Denis Cheryshev gave Russian Federation the lead with a shot into the upper corner in the 31st minute and Croatia equalized with Andrej Kramaric's header near halftime.

"We're giving our all". Prior to this stretch, teams to shoot first had won 63% of all World Cup shootouts.

Rakitic lauded Modric as Croatia trumped Denmark in a dramatic penalty shoot-out to reach the last eight of the showpiece tournament, revealing he told his team-mates they had to give something back to the 32-year-old midfielder.

"This is a attractive feeling, we are overwhelmed, This win was for the whole of Croatia and Croats around the world".

"It wasn't a handsome game, but it was a battle", Dalic said.

Despite an injury, Danijel Subasic pulled off a save to put Croatia ahead from the first kick and they made the most of it, winning the shootout 4 - 3.

Andrej Kramarić's goal against World Cup hosts, Russia.
