Croatia star shouts home town's massive Cup bar tab

In the shootout, Mateo Kovacic missed his kick for Croatia, but two misses by Russia's Fedor Smolov and Fernandes handed The Blazers passage to the semis where England await.

Russian Federation defender Mario Fernandes scored the equalizing goal in extra time, but then sent his penalty wide of the net in the shootout.

"This was my last World Cup, my last tournament and the last match of my soccer career".

He added that he would have retired as professional footballer earlier if not for the World Cup and now plans to become a coach.

Croatia defender Domagoj Vida has heap praised on Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic on helping him scored a crucial penalty during his side's 2018 FIFA World Cup quarter-final victory over Russian Federation.

Belgium faced a heart-stopping moment of uncertainty in the first knockout round against Japan, when Martinez's decision to rest players in their final group match against England nearly backfired spectacularly. "We've already accomplished something big, but we want to achieve more", he told reporters. "I think they had just gotten back from training, and he was chilling and texting on his phone".


SOCHI, Russia-Croatia was there at England's lowest ebb this century in global soccer, and it'll be there as the English team tries to peak.

Although Croatia went on to suffer an agonising 2-1 defeat to host nation France in the semi-finals, they beat the Netherlands 2-1 in the third-place playoff.

And if that was any football fans ultimate fantasy, then what followed was even more surreal, as the whole team walked into the restaurant right after, and Ravi met Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic, who scored the nerve-wracking final penalty that saw Croatia into the semi-finals, and clicked a picture with him. "Until last night, when all the pain was removed and when we finally experienced a revival of 1998", the Sportski Novosti newspaper said after that match.

Winks went toe to toe with Modric in the Champions League for Tottenham twice as they took on the mighty Real Madrid, drawing one game and winning 3-1 at Wembley.

"They have been playing at an extremely high level for their clubs". "We made ourselves happy, but we also made everybody back home in Croatia happy. We have played two matches of 120 minutes of football in six days, and of course this will leave a mark on you but. we have shown our character".
