Croatia finally beat Denmark in penalty kick after extra time.

As predicted, this game was so tense. The two European nations were very determined to bag a quarter finals ticket in Russia.

Jorgensen scored for Denmark on the stroke of 58seconds before Mandzukic levelled it for Croatia almost immediately in 4minutes. The 120minutes game didn’t witness any more goal till the end.

Although, Modric had an opportunity to sealed it for his team from the penalty spot few minutes before the final whistle was blown, but unfortunately his shot was comfortably held by Kaisper Schmeichel.

Both goalkeepers proved to be the best in their position by stealing the penalty kick show.

Schmeichel, who had earlier held a penalty, catches two other penalties in the kick.

The 35years old Subasic displayed enormous experience by saving three penalties before Rakitic scored his to deny the Dane a spot in the next round of FIFA World Cup, Russia 2018.

The score ended Croatia 3 Denmark 2.

That’s all for today, see you tomorrow.
