The last quarter-final sees hosts Russia take on dark horses Croatia.


The game is live on ITV. Please use this thread for speculation, pre and post match chat on the Russia v Croatia game.


How do you see this going?

FIFA will ensure Russia are shepherded through to at least the Semis, so again probably by virtue of a questionable decision or 2 Russia will advance.

Still hope Russia will win even despite these referee conspiracy theories, as Russia have played better than Croatia overall in the tournament I think, especially after Croatia were so disappointing in their last match.

I can see this going to penalties and Croatia prevailing.

I can see Croatia beating Russia actually quite comfortably, I just think Russia are the flukey team that go lucky getting where they are now in the competition. I never expected them to get this far, mind you they are on my work sweepstake to win

I am not sure, maybe in the last match against Spain it was a bit flukey because of the infamous no-penalty decision for Spain, but in their first two group games they proved a good attacking team that can score goals and have home advantage too. Hopefully they will go forward more than they did against Spain in this match.

Croatia meanwhile were poor in their last match and would have lost if Denmark would have taken their chances better.

Russia scored a blinder of a goal. I do find the game lacks something, at the moment England are capable of beating any of these teams.

Both teams look shattered, Russia playing for penalties. I'll tell you what though, both teams playing another 30 minutes is great for England..

Bear in mind that it is now 23:15 in Sochi. It's going to be a late night for whoever wins.
