Quarter and semi finals, and results so far

Croatians Ivan Rakitic, Marcelo Brozovic, Ante Rebic, Mario Mandzukic, Sime Vrsaljko, Vedran Corluka, Marko Pjaca and Tin Jedvaj will miss out on the semi-finals if they are booked on Saturday. Even teams that were my second choice have gotten eliminated.

"We achieved our goal to qualify, however". They will need to rectify those mistakes against a strong Brazilian team which has improved with each passing game.

The current group of Croatians has become exhausted of hearing about what happened in 1998. "I started playing for Croatia in 2008 and we have had a lot of unlucky defeats, we needed a bit of luck to get through, but we have worked for it", said Modric.

"But we will still support our team and believe in their victory", Yuga.ru cited employees of the aquarium as saying.

The 2002 and 2006 tournaments were particularly frustrating because a win in the final group games would have advanced Croatia to the knockout round. Given what has happened so far Brazil would have to consider themselves the favorites to win the whole thing. The 2014 World Cup had also thrown similar results when the teams that qualified to the Round of 16 had taken 6.9 shots per game while the teams that failed to qualified made 13.7 attempts per game. "That's what we are here for". The hosts, meanwhile, have already punched much above their weight and will hope the partisan crowd at the Fisht Stadium by the Black Sea will carry them even further.

The Real Madrid player is possibly the best midfielder at the tournament but the strength in depth for such a small country is remarkable. Goalkeeper Danijel Subasic has become a national hero for saving three penalties to advance Croatia past Denmark in the round of 16.
