Russia vs Croatia LIVE Score, FIFA World Cup 2018 LIVE: In the final quarterfinal of what has been a ‘full-of-surprise’ World Cup, the golden generation of Croatia led by their charismatic captain Luka Modric will take on the hosts Russia at the Fisht Stadium, Sochi. Croatia have been superb throughout the tournament out-foxing Argentina 3-0 before beating Denmark on penalties in the round of 16. The players would take inspiration from what Belgium did the other night and would aim to turn the dream of lifting the trophy into a reality.
Russia, on the other hand, would have the support of the crowd. Their confidence would sky high after beating former World Champions Spain in the pre-quarterfinals and the return of midfielder Alan Dzagoev will only boost that. Dzagoev is for this match but will likely start on the bench in favour of Denis Cheryshev.
