23:32 (IST)9 DEC 2022

So we will wind up this coverage with a couple of tweets.

23:32 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Lots of Brazilian supporters in the stands in shock and grown men and women, kids with tears flowing. 

23:30 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Neymar is sobbing uncontrollably and he is being consoled by Dani Alves. Such a heartbreaking sight for any football fan except for those from Croatia.

23:28 (IST)9 DEC 2022

With this fourth penalty shootout win, Croatia join Germany and Argentina as the only nations to have done so. In the process, they have reached their third World Cup semi-final.

23:27 (IST)9 DEC 2022

STAT: Croatia have played 4 penalty shootouts in their World cup history and have won all four. Incredible.

23:26 (IST)9 DEC 2022

After Marquinhos missed his penalty he sunk to his knees head bowed and did not look up. Croatia meanwhile ran as a team to their goalkeeper. Jubilation and ecstasy at one end and sheer heartbreak at the other. That's why football is considered the GOAT sport.

23:25 (IST)9 DEC 2022

A word of praise for these three in particular - Dominik Livakovic, Josip Juranovic and of course Luka Modric. The first two were outstanding and a major reason why Croatia were in it till the 120 minutes and then what can one say about Modric who was tireless. Brazil were the fancied side but Croatia have upset the odds again.

23:23 (IST)9 DEC 2022

You  just to have admire this Croatian outfit. After going behind to that Neymar goal, they scored with their only shot on target with the help of a big deflection from Marquinhos and then the centre-back missed his penalty which knocked his side out. Crazy for Croatia just hung on and on and repelled whatever was thrown at them. And when it went to penalties, their experience and Livakovic came up trumps.

23:19 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Tears from Neymar and Co. Antony and others in tears as Brazil are going home.

23:18 (IST)9 DEC 2022

BRAZIL ARE OUT! PENALTY MISSED BY MARQUINHOS! Croatia 5 Brazil 3. Marquinhos strikes the left-hand post with the goalkeeper going the other way. The ball ricochets back out and that's it - Brazil are out. Scarcely unbelievable result!

23:18 (IST)9 DEC 2022

PENALTY SCORED BY Mislav Orsic! Croatia 5 Brazil 3. That is a perfect penalty from Orsic and even though Alisson went the right way, he couldn't save it.

23:15 (IST)9 DEC 2022

PENALTY SCORED BY Guilherme Pedro! Croatia 4 Brazil 3. Now Pedro sends the keeper the wrong way. Livakovic dives to his left, but it goes the other way.

23:15 (IST)9 DEC 2022

PENALTY SCORED BY Luka Modric! Croatia 4 Brazil 2. As cool as you like from the legend. Modric sends Alisson the wrong way as the goalie dives to his left.

23:14 (IST)9 DEC 2022

PENALTY SCORED BY Casemiro! Croatia 3 Brazil 2. Right into the corner as Livakovic dives but too much power and placement. Casemiro breathes a sigh of relief.

23:13 (IST)9 DEC 2022

PENALTY SCORED BY Lovro Majer! Croatia 3 Brazil 1. Again down the  middle as Alisson dives to his right, the trailing leg almost kept that out.

23:12 (IST)9 DEC 2022

PENALTY MISSED BY Rodrygo! Croatia 2 Brazil 1. Early advantage Croatia. Livakovic dives to his left to push the side-footer from Rodrygo who took a big run-up as well.

23:11 (IST)9 DEC 2022

PENALTY SCORED BY Nikola Vlasic! Croatia 2 Brazil 1. Straight down the middle as Alisson dives right. Good penalty.

23:10 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Croatia go first. 

23:09 (IST)9 DEC 2022

That goal from Croatia was their first on target and the latest in terms of time they have scored in the World Cup.

23:08 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Can Dominik Livakovic turn out to be the hero again in the shootout? Remember he has already won them their round of 16 game against Japan. And he has saved 11 shots from Brazil tonight.

23:06 (IST)9 DEC 2022

EXTRA-TIME ENDS! Croatia 1 Brazil 1. Just when everyone thought Brazil were through, with one sweeping move, Croatia level through Petkovic and the pulsating game goes to penalties.

23:06 (IST)9 DEC 2022


23:06 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Livakovic again with a fine save! Casemiro on the half-volley and towards the near-post but Livakovic palms it away.

23:04 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Two minutes of added time in extra-time.

23:01 (IST)9 DEC 2022

GOAL! Bruno Petkovic in the 117th minute! Croatia 1 Brazil 1. You cannot discount this Croatian side. An overload on the left and the left-back finds Petkovic whose shot takes a big deflection from Marquinhos' thigh which takes it past Alisson's outstretched right hand. And he takes his shirt off to celebrate as well. Bedlam and madness!

22:54 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Croatia make a change: Ante Budimir on and Borna Sosa off.

22:51 (IST)9 DEC 2022

STAT courtesy BBC: The Brazil forward has just equalled Pele as Brazil's all-time men's top scorer with 77 Fifa-registered goals.

22:49 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Second half of extra-time begins.

22:49 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Double change for Brazil: Alex Sandro and Fred on. Lucas Paqueta and Eder Militao off.

22:48 (IST)9 DEC 2022

A change for Croatia: Mateo Kovacic off. Lovro Majer on.

22:46 (IST)9 DEC 2022

The crowd inside the stadium are all bananas - mostly the Brazilian supporters.

22:46 (IST)9 DEC 2022

HALF-TIME IN EXTRA-TIME! Croatia 0 Brazil 1.

22:44 (IST)9 DEC 2022

GOAL! Neymar in the 107th minute! Croatia 0 Brazil 1. Neymarrrrrrrrrrrr! He starts and finishes the move. Taking it from the halfway line, passes it and gets it back, rounds the keeper and with Borna Sosa sliding to stop on the line, he roofs it into the net. A piece of individual brilliance that has broken the deadlock.

22:41 (IST)9 DEC 2022

What a chance for Croatia. Petkovic on the left skips past two yellow shirts as if they are not there and lays it on a plate to Brozovic in the middle who blasts it over. He was free as well. Should've it the target at least. 

22:28 (IST)9 DEC 2022

First half of extra-time begins.

22:22 (IST)9 DEC 2022


22:22 (IST)9 DEC 2022

FULL-TIME! Croatia 0 Brazil 0. Dominik Livakovic and Josip Juranovic absolute rocks as they repelled everything thrown at them. Brazil just could not break down the resolute defence. To extra-time we go.

22:18 (IST)9 DEC 2022

4 minutes of added time.

22:12 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Brazil make a change: Richarlison off. Guilherme Pedro is on.

22:10 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Now Richarlison's header loops over the crossbar.

22:09 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Brazil attacking relentlessly and Croatia hanging on.

22:09 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Antony on the right with good feet and Danilo crosses to the far stick, Rodrygo sets up Lucas Paqueta whose shot is saved by Livakovic.

22:05 (IST)9 DEC 2022

YELLOW CARD TO Marquinhos for cynically pulling back Modric who was away.

22:05 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Livakovic! Off his line and turns the Neymar shot from the left away for a corner. Great anticipation and goalkeeping.

22:00 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Double substitution for Croatia: Andrej Kramaric and Mario Pasalic off. Nikola Vlasic and Bruno Petkovic on.

21:56 (IST)9 DEC 2022

YELLOW CARD TO Casemiro for bringing down Andrej Kramaric.

21:55 (IST)9 DEC 2022

Livakovic again with a fine save! Paqueta from close range tries to turn it in but the goalie comes out and saves. Really good save.
