Croatia meet Brazil in the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. Everyone expected Brazil to go through to the semi-finals due to the amount of talent they have in their squad. But things went out very differently in the match.
Modric, Brozovic and Kovacic dominated the midfield and nullified Brazil’s attack to some extent. However, when Neymar scored a goal in the first half of extra-time after the match finished 0-0 in 90 minutes, everyone thought it was the last roll of the dice as Brazil was about to qualify. But Croatia had other things in mind as Petkovic scored late in the second half of extra time and took the match into the penalties.
Livakovic saved the very first of Brazil’s penalties taken by Rodrygo and ultimately won the shootout as Marquinhos missed his penalty. Modric’s Croatia marches on to the quarter-finals, where they will face the winner of the Netherlands vs Argentina match.
