    SMS Message: Croatia were poor, maybe so but England were not great against Belgium. Who are we trying to kid?!! Russia were dreadful, tactically spot on but not a world class performance. Every team has the ability to play better at any stage of a tournament. Believe in winning, but stop kidding ourselves that there is an easy route/match. from Phil, Fareham.

    Andres Iniesta, who scored Spain's winning goal in the 2010 World Cup final, has announced his retirement from international football following the team's exit against Russia.

    The 34-year-old came on as a substitute as Spain lost 4-3 on penalties to the hosts in the last 16 on Sunday.

    Iniesta's last kick for his country was to score in the shootout in his 131st - and final - international outing.

    "It is a reality that is my last match with the national team," he said.

    Since 1966, only one penalty has been taken later in a World Cup match than Luka Modric’s penalty for Croatia (115:46) – Asamoah Gyan for Ghana against Uruguay in 2010 (121:27), whose penalty hit the crossbar.

    SMS Message: Croatia might not have been at their best, but I'm SO relieved we don't have to bear a Den-Rus quarter final. At least Croatia can step it up; Denmark are Championship quality + Eriksen (highlighted by the super boring play-for-a-long-throw tactics). from Martin, Leeds

  7. The 'right' half of the draw...

    One of Russia, Croatia, Sweden, Switzerland, England or Colombia will reach the World Cup final...

  8. 'Croatia were very poor'

    Croatia 1-1 Denmark

    Pat Nevin

    Former Chelsea winger on BBC Radio 5 live

    Croatia were very poor and there were very few players who played anywhere near their capabilities. Mandzukic is one of the top strikers in the world but he was bullied tonight. There were little flashes now and then, but they didn't play well as a group.

    James there looking ahead to a potential World Cup semi-final between England and Croatia before the last 16 tie has even been played,

    He's not alone!

    But Colombia, Sweded/Switzerland and Russia will all have something to say about that.

    Kolo: And that was how Denmark wasted Kasper Schmeichel's 3 penalty saves for nothing!

    Mark: Please England - no penalty shootouts in any matches. My heart can barely even take Croatia vs Denmark in a shootout

    Nicola: Kasper Schmeichel so nearly the hero for Denmark there... Croatia just about sneaking there way through...

  12. Post update

    There's nothing quite like losing on penalties. The Danish fans are devastated by that. It must be doubly bad as

    1. Denmark were the better side for most of that game and
    2. The route through this half of the draw is so favourable for all the sides left in it...
  13. 'Both goalkeepers were a long way off their line'

    Croatia 1-1 Denmark

    Terry Butcher

    Ex-England captain on BBC Radio 5 live

    Both goalkeepers were a long way off their line for most of those penalties. It was a dreadful game with some dreadful penalties, but some decent goalkeeping. Denmark are a tough team to beat but they have done their country proud.

  14. Post update

    Steve Morrow moment! The Croatian players drop goalkeeper Danijel Subasic as they celebrate in front of their own fans!

    I think he's OK.

  15. WATCH: Modric misses it

    Croatia 1-1 Denmark

    Luka Modric is a man full of emotion right now, and understandably so. He had the stones to step up and score in the shootout just a few minutes after he fluffed his lines at the end of extra time...

    I'm not convinced Croatia deserved to win that game, but they came through. England have nothing to fear about.
