Croatia beat Denmark on penalties to reach World Cup quarter-finals

Denmark's midfielder Christian Eriksen shouts during the Russia 2018 World Cup Group C football match between Denmark and France at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow

The anticipated influence of Christian Eriksen for the Danes and Croatia's Modric held out hopes of more mouth-watering action but their craft was only evident in patches.

Here we go then, the second half of extra time begins.

The second of the three all-European ties in the Round of 16 at Russian Federation 2018 is happening for the first time. Modric takes, but doesn't find a teammate.

23 minute: Corner for Denmark. Jorgensen managed to squeeze a finish through Subasic after a long throw.

Extra time ends goal-less as Modric misses the penalty.

One last chance for Denmark from the set piece, Subasic punches, but only as far as Braithwaite!

Rakitic shoots from distance! Denmark have scored the opener within the opening two minutes. Croatia on the ball for the moment however. His 31st goal for Croatia. The ball works out to Rebic who sort of crosses, sort of shoots, but Schmeichel punches the ball out of the danger area.

Pione Sisto (for Braithwaite 105) - 6 - Injected pace and precision for the final 15 minutes, and immediately looked like Denmark's most risky player.

"Eriksen is a world-class player".

"I would be the happiest man on Earth because it would mean Croatia have done something significant", Dalic said, "so God willing it will be so". We're back to a draw. He limps off the field just before halftime. We'll be back shortly for the second spell. The only previous encounter between the two in a major tournament was at Euro 1996. (In case you're wondering, Modric, with the weight of the world on his shoulders, had no compunction about taking - and converting - his penalty.) It was left to Ivan Rakitic, and Schmeichel was beaten. The cross comes in from Strinic, Mandzukic goes down in the challenge from Knudsen, VAR confirms no penalty.

After the explosive start, the game turned into a cagey affair.

After some comical defending at both ends and goals from Mathias Jorgensen and Mandzukic, the match became a tense affair with neither side giving much away.

Christian Eriksen gets things underway! Marcelo Brozovic, 7. Ivan Rakitic, 18.

Ante Rebic - 6 - A relentless runner, the winger was a real livewire in the final third as his tireless energy kept the Denmark defence on their toes. A Denmark clearance attempt from its own area bounced off a defender, right into the path of Mario Mandzukic. Schmeichel has saved Denmark!

Subs: Lossl, Krohn-Dehli, Vestergaard, Kvist, Nicolai Jorgensen, Dolberg, Fischer, Larsen, Lerager, Schone, Sisto, Ronnow.

Thomas Delaney - 6 - Struggled to leave a lasting impression in the first half alongside Christensen in the midfield, but looked more assured and composed in the second half as Denmark grew into the match.

Kwese's Andrew Kabuura and Daniel Amokachi point to Spain's record against host nations in World Cups following their shock defeat againt Russian Federation.

Croatia equalized in the fourth minute with another untidy goal at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium.

Denmark have qualified for quarterfinals only once, they beat Nigeria 4-1 ( in the round of 16) in the 1998 World Cup in France.

"We have the highest possible respect for the Danish team".
