Zlatko Dalic's men needed a penalty shootout victory of their own against Denmark in the last round after Luka Modric missed a spot kick in normal time.

What was to follow though soon saw heartbreak occur on a large scale. Mexico lost the penalty shootout in 1986 against West Germany, and since then Italy (1990), France (1998), South Korea (2002), Germany (2006) and Brazil (2014) have all made the semi-finals.

But all of Russian Federation held its collective breath when a shot from Ivan Perisic on the hour mark struck the inside of the post and the ball somehow rolled across the face of the goal to safety - the Croatian winger couldn't believe he hadn't scored.

A deathly silence soon filled the room containing Fernandes' family, with footage showing tears emerging from eyes as the realisation hit home.

Real Madrid star Luka Modric, earlier goalscorer Vida and Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic all converted their penalty kicks, handing the Croatians a 4-3 win in the penalty shootout.

Russian Federation felt they should have had a penalty in the first half of extra time but the referee was right to turn down the appeals.

Kramarić is Croatia's seventh different player to score a goal for the side in the 2018 World Cup. This is the first time two teams have had penalties in successive matches of the knockout stages of a World Cup, though.
