Croatia wins against Brazil in penalty shootout

Croatia are now semi-finalists after winning against Brazil from penalties, following a tied extra time.

13′ Juranovic drives at the Brazil defense and offloads to Pasalic down the right flank. He whips a perfect ball into the six-yard box where Perisic attempts to guide the ball home, but he miscues his effort wide of the left post amid pressure from Militao.

42′ Neymar goes for goal from a free-kick, but his effort takes a slight deflection off the wall and travels into the hands of Livakovic.

47′  Livakovic makes a great reaction stop to prevent Gvardiol from scoring an own goal. Militao raids down the right flank and fires a low cross toward the near post. Gvardiol has to act in the middle to prevent Richarlison from latching on to the ball, but he steers it toward his own goal. The defender is bailed out by a sharp reaction save.

55′ Livakovic denies Neymar with a strong boot. Richarlison sends Neymar down the inside-left channel and he fires toward the bottom-left corner, but Livakovic produces a solid stop to deny the forward.

66′ A loose ball falls perfectly for Paqueta in the Croatia box, but Livakovic is sharp off his line to block the strike from the midfielder behind for a corner.

76′ Livakovic is on the spot yet again for Croatia to deny Neymar. Richarlison turns the ball around the corner into the inside-left channel for Neymar. He shoots low and hard on his left foot, but Livakovic spreads himself to make the block with his legs.

86′ Militao lines up two blasts at goal after being teed up by Antony. His first is blocked back to him before his second is deflected inches wide of the right post.

After two halves without any goals, the match went into extra time.

106′ Neymar scores against Croatia, making it 1-0 close to the end of the first half in extra time.
