A poor second half saw Nicolai Jorgensen strike an effort straight at Croatia goalkeeper Danijel Subasic as the game move in to extra-time. Spain lost the goal-fest to Russian Federation in a penalty shootout and taking inspiration, Denmark and Croatia scored a goal each inside first five minutes of the play. Croatia equalise through Mario Mandzukic's goal. Jorgensen got the first in the first minute and then Mandzukic quickly responded. He comes off the field for the time being.

After 20 minutes, Mandzukic went down under a challenge in the area after a cross from the left, but the referee waved play on and a VAR check confirmed the decision.

Croatia players celebrate after winning against Denmark. Played a host of long balls when he had no other solutions in the buildup, gifting the ball to the opposition every time. Croatia clear the ball though.

Croatia were nearly ahead with five minutes remaining until the break when Modric's flighted free-kick was flicked narrowly wide by Dejan Lovren.

11' Free kick for Croatia from the edge of the box. Schmeichel has saved Denmark!

45' - Substitution: Denmark's Lasse Schöne replaces Andreas Christensen.

DF Sime Vrsaljko, 6 - Threatening down the flank, crossing and cutting inside, especially in the first half.

DF Ivan Strinic, 6 - Played a bit more offensively than usual and was decent at that, but struggled all game with trying to contain Denmark's key man, Yussuf Poulsen.

"It will bring together the whole country if we move on against Croatia", Eriksen said.

Jorgensen fired a low effort at the goalkeeper after turning well inside the area with Denmark now looking the more risky, and Eriksen dragged a half-chance wide soon afterwards.

Knudsen's cross is blocked by Lovren, and Denmark have a corner.

The second of the three all-European ties in the Round of 16 at Russian Federation 2018 is happening for the first time. The Scandinavian side were unbeaten in their practice games coming into the World Cup.

105' - Substitution: Denmark's Pione Sisto replaces Martin Braithwaite. "I remember my mum screaming in the house when we scored", central defender Dejan Lovren recalled Croatia's 2-1 win over the Netherlands in 1998 that secured third place.

Kjaer blasted home for the Danes before Kramaric kept his cool to beat Schmeichel from the spot.

Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel saves the injury time penalty kick by Croatia's Luka Modric. The former Manchester United keeper did the same when Kasper Schmeichel stopped two penalties in the shootout.

After a lively extended period, a penalty was awarded to Croatia after Ante Rebic's path to scoring into an empty net was halted by Mathias Jorgensen, who only received a yellow card.
