Croatia simply doesnt deserve to go through. When you have all those players and fail to close you shouldnt be there

Croatia being lucky against Denmark and can't hardly beat a Russian team that plays like a mid team in Serie B. Doesn't deserve to be in the semis.

The most one sided game in knockout stages decided on penalties.

Anyone else notice Subasic ending up like 5 meters from the goal line? lol

Surprised the ref didnt warn him.

He did the same against Denmark. The refs are not taking any notice of it.

Croatia looked absolutely dead, their game vs England isn't looking too good with Subasic, Mandzukic, and Vrsaljko clearly sporting injuries...

And if this game has proven anything, it's that Kovacic is borderline useless. Mentally Brozo looks much stronger as evidenced by that penalty. Absolutely loved the kid when we had him but he's all talent with little development the last few years.

Every referee warned the goalkeepers before the shoot outs then didn't give a fuck about it.

But has still got three Chammpion League gold medals in the last three seasons. He can't be that useless then?

How much did he contribute to that feat though? He plays lousy 5 minutes every game.

She looked cool to me. That "pissed Russian guy" is Medvedev and doesn't look scary. He's 162cm tall))

I was eight when we played France in 98, rly thought we'll never replay that success, and to win 2 games on pens,amazing.

And Schmeichel didnt when he saved that pen in ET?
