  • Croatia’s kit for the quarterfinal ready to

Croatia complete the 2018 World Cup semi final line up after beating Russian Federation in dramatic fashion in a penalty shootout in the last quarter final of the competition, and can now look forward to a last four clash with England on Wednesday.

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. "In principle, we played as we planned, [but] the goals we conceded, we shouldn't have conceded, but that's football", 54-year-old former worldwide 'keeper said. Mario Mandzukic ran unchallenged into the penalty area and chipped a low ball back into the centre where unmarked Kramaric scored with a glancing header.

They still managed to take the lead with Domagoj Vida's header but a towering header from Brazil-born defender Mario Fernandes force the game into penalties. "Of course, I am rooting for Croatia and want Team Croatia to advance".

It was the second straight time both teams played in a penalty shootout. It goes to extra time.

They return to action on Wednesday when they meet England (19:00 BST) in Moscow for a place in the final on 15 July.

Croatia are just the second team to win successive shootouts in World Cup history, emulating Argentina's feat in 1990, when the latter won shootouts against Yugoslavia and Italy in the quarters and the semis, respectively.

However, a bigger issue for coach Zlatko Dalic will be how to get more decisive performances from his top players.

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. He converted the final penalty for Russian Federation in the shootout against Spain, as well as the victor against Egypt and a pair of goals in the opener against Saudi Arabia in the group stage.
