    Bezaleel: Rakitic sends Croatia through....AGAIN

    Lee: Massive commiserations to Russia!! Croatia go through on penalties to meet us in the Semi Final!! We will have them!

    Robert: There is a huge gulf in quality between France/Belgium and England/Croatia. Surely the winner of the first semi-final must go on to become champions?!

    What a game! What a finish! AND WHAT A WORLD CUP!

    The Russian players are almost inconsolable at the moment but there's sheer relief on Luka Modric's face. His penalty was inches from bouncing off the post.

    He was excellent in the second half for Croatia. Go and give him a rating.

  5. 'I really feel for Russia'

    I am not sure if anybody really deserved to lose tonight, they both put their bodies on the line. The quality of Croatia was just a little bit better but that doesn't matter in penalty shootouts. Croatia have edged it but I really feel for Russia.

    Devastation for the hosts. They have made it so far.

    But Croatia are through to the final four thanks to back-to-back penalty shootout victories. Nerves of steel.

    Russia's hero turns to villain. It's a bizarre run-up and he just toe punts it wide.

    An excellent low save in the corner from Igor Akinfeev. Brilliant stop.

    Igor Akinfeev

    He's barely played in this tournament because of injury, but he sends the keeper the wrong way to level.

    Russia 0-1 Croatia

    Top corner. Nice.
