Rakitic buries it into the bottom-left corner as Akinfeev goes the wrong way and Croatia are through to the last four in a World Cup for the first time since 1998! Their players wheel away in celebration; Zlatko Dalic is hoisted by his assistant on the touchline. Russia drop to their knees. Mario Fernandes looks distraught. Luka Modric looks to be floating on clouds. What drama. It was not a vintage encounter by any stretch - but what absolute drama. Full-time at Sochi, it finishes Russia 2 (3) - (2 (4) Croatia.
RAKITIC SCORES! 3-4! CROATIA ARE THROUGH TO THE SEMI-FINALS OF THE 2018 WORLD CUP!
KUZYAEV SCORES! 3-3. The next to win it for Croatia.
