Croatia are not out of the World Cup yet.
The Europeans, who are taking on tournament favourites Brazil in today’s first quarter-final, managed to hold their opponents for 90 minutes but saw their defence finally breached in the 105th minute.
Poster boy Neymar managed to break free of the Croatian’s backline, and after going on a dazzling run, slotted the ball beyond goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic.

Although looking nailed on to see the game out, Brazil have found themselves pegged back with just a few minutes left to play.
Substitute forward Bruno Petkovic, with the help of a fortunate deflection, managed to latch on the end of a cross and squeeze the ball past Liverpool’s Alisson.
