Croatia beat Russia 4-3 on penalties

After France, Belgium and England all clinched a spot in the World Cup semis, Croatia joined them on Saturday after beating host Russia 4-3 in penalty kicks.

A 1-1 match after 90 minutes saw each team score again in extra time, with penalty kicks deciding consecutive matches for both teams.

Croatia goalkeeper Danijel Subasic once again came up big, making some big saves in regulation, one after getting injured, and saving Russia’s first penalty kick.

Ivan Rakitic scored the winning penalty as Croatia returns to the semi-finals for the first time since 1998.
