I think Croatia make the final now, a lot of pressure and demons overcome with this win.

I don't ever recall a shootout quite like that.

Same here.

I feel like most finalists and champions have at least one game like this where they just squeeze out a win.

Modric got lucky on his second one too...

They got lucky as hell.

Missing a penalty and then getting some saves in the shootout? Yeah...lucky as hell.

But you take it and move along. Good luck Croatia!

No man. They got lucky. Croatia never should have won but also Denmark didn't deserve to lose

Had Denmark won, it would have been said they were lucky for conceding a terrible PK and getting out of jail with the win. How can both teams be lucky to win? On the balance of play I thought Croatia deserved it. No team wins the WC without luck on the way, but to label this game strictly as a luck win I think gives Denmark undue credit

Croatia were very poor for basically 105 minutes of that game. They found a way, barely, but they will lose to Russia, possibly badly, if they play like that again.

Unfortunately if you look at that game and they play it against Russia they'd get slaughtered.

But Croatia just have so much more in their arsenal, its just about whether they can bring that into the game.

Croatia lost a sure goal to a foul. It was a case where, if we could re-invent the rules to the game based on fairness, a goal would've been a more appropriate penalty than the penalty shot awarded. It would've been a cruel universe in which they lose that game.

Two games decided by penalty shots though... ugh, so lame.

You look at the 90 and Denmark had enough chances (3-5) to convert a winner. I think Croatia might have had 1 or 2 if I'm being generous. That extra time penalty should have never happened had Denmark been more clinical in the original 90

Well not been a good day. Took the Danish loss hard as no doubt they had their chances.

Schmeicel was heroic and the PK save in extra time was an incredible moment for Danish soccer.

Was making a joke to my family that Danish boys will be named Kasper for some time to come

I am not going to under estimate Russia again. They are the Golden Knights of football and are going to the finals. It is crazy both Spain and Portugal are out. After their 3-3 draw I thought there was a good chance of them meeting in the finals.

That's where you're wrong. They were on the same level but not as elite as Russia or Uruguay.. I kid. Russia are the worst team to make a quarter final probably ever

Yeah as disappointing as that game was, the look on my kids faces when he made that save in extra time was something I’ll remember. They weren’t that into it until that moment.

Nice start for Mexico, Brazil barely getting anything on the ball.

When I watch Mexico I think why don't Spain play like this?

This is so much more entertaining than just a bunch of crosses into the box.
