England's Semi Final Will Be Against Croatia On Wednesday

Russia vs Croatia World Cup 2018

In a related incident, Federation Internationale de Football Association also issued a warning to Croatia goalkeeper, Danijel Subasic, who lifted his jersey to reveal a T-shirt commemorating a teammate who had died from game-related injuries in 2008.

World Cup Daily: For Croatia, one man is the hero.

What was to follow though soon saw heartbreak occur on a large scale.

Swedish goalkeeper Robin Olsen had no chance to stop the perfectly placed header, and the Three Lions were off to the races from there.

Modric has scored two of Croatia's eight goals en route to the quarter-final, and Rakitic spoke of the 32-year-old's importance in Spanish football.

A deathly silence soon filled the room containing Fernandes' family, with footage showing tears emerging from eyes as the realisation hit home.

The victor of this game will face England in the semi-final on Wednesday.

"We should have finished the job before penalties but maybe it's written in the stars we have to go through the extra drama", said Luka Modric, whose penalty bounced off Akinfeev's hand and the post before entering the other side of the net.

Russian Federation entered the World Cup without having won a match at the tournament since 2002 and with the lowest ranking of the 32 teams, but suddenly the host nation couldn't stop winning.

Croatia will next play England in the semifinals on Wednesday in Moscow.

But as in the previous match against Denmark - which Croatia also won on penalties after an insipid 1-1 draw - all too often his team mates failed to do anything with them.

Russian Federation have played at four different stadiums during their five World Cup 2018 games, and Cherchesov paid tribute to the home fans for their support.

Denis Cheryshev fired the hosts into a 31st minute lead with a spectacular strike but Andrej Kramaric headed home to make it 1-1 six minutes before the half-time break.

Vida was booked moments later after removing his top during his goal celebration.
