The penalty incident ... in sequence !
01 Jul 22:29
ET 116' Kasper Schmeichel saves a Luka Modric penalty! The drama continues ...
01 Jul 22:29


Trust Luka Modric to make a difference. The Real Madrid star squeezes the tightest of through ball to Rebic. And the forward darts forward with pace and beats Kasper Schmeichel but before he pulls the trigger, Jorgenson brings Rebic down. Obvious penalty.

01 Jul 22:22
ET 109' Mandzukic off for the central midfielder Badelj.
01 Jul 22:20

01 Jul 22:19
Final word ... 
01 Jul 22:18


Okay, we get you both (Croatia and Denmark) want a penalty shoot-out ...

01 Jul 22:17
ET 103' Denmark have done well to keep Modric and Rakatic quiet ...
01 Jul 22:12
ET 101' Jorgensen holds it up for Schone really well, and his touch takes him away from Kovacic. He has a go, looking for the bottom left corner from 25 yards, but it's just wide!
01 Jul 22:12
A few sighters for Denmark on the edge of the box on both flanks with Eriksen and Knudsen, but there's a real lack of composure in the final third! Eriksen over to take a corner, but Lovren clears ahead of Subasic.
01 Jul 22:10
ET 97' Perisic comes off for Kramiric.
01 Jul 22:09
ET 94' Eriksen delivers a dangerous ball into the 18th area which just evades his target man, before Knudsen runs into the box from the other flank and sees his cross cleared behind.
01 Jul 21:58
ET 90' Denmark get the first half of extra-time underway ...
01 Jul 21:57
01 Jul 21:51


Extra time to come in the next couple of minutes ...

01 Jul 21:51
92' Rakitic thumps a low shot at goal from 30 yards. But it is well wide. 
01 Jul 21:50
90' Three minutes of additional time added on.
01 Jul 21:48
88' Schone fires well over from 20 yards. Misses. 
01 Jul 21:42
84' So close yet so far. And far off indeed as Perisic attempts to dink a headed effort over Kasper but fails.
01 Jul 21:40
81' Strinic can't continue and is replaced by Pivaric. 
01 Jul 21:35

76' MODRIC! 

After scramble in the 18th area, with Denmark struggling to get the ball out of the danger zone. The ball is finally cleared but only as far as Modric, and the Real Madrid star sees his shot go horribly wide.

01 Jul 21:32


Denmark again (which is getting tiring now, come on Croatia put up a fight), this time from Eriksen who sees his shot wiz past the keeper ...

01 Jul 21:31
70' Croatia head coach Zlatko Dalic brings on Kovacic for Brozovic
01 Jul 21:27
67' Denmark make a change. Nicolai Jorgensen on for Cornelius.
01 Jul 21:27
64' It seems (to me at least) Croatia are out of ideas going forward and very disjointed. Easy midfield battles, being lost and this could come back to bite them.
01 Jul 21:25

61' Croatia sitting back and too comfortable, allowing the Danes too much time on the ball. 

Poulsen is growing into the game again sprints past Vida down the flank and nearly getting a shot off after brilliant link-up play with Cornelius. 

01 Jul 21:22
59' Denmark showing signs of intent here as keeping their shape and discipline allows Croatia to try and affect the match in a different manner leaving gaps in midfield.
01 Jul 21:21

56' CHANCE! Poulsen whips in a low cross before getting the better of Strinic and Braithwaite gets hold of the cross and pulls the trigger. Shot wide!

01 Jul 21:15
52' Denmark refusing to change their shape while Croatia seem static.
01 Jul 21:14
50' Slow start in this second-half ...
