2 : 2
3 - 4
7th of July 2018 18:00
First half: 45 | Second half: 45
- 0' - It’s Showtime! The match between Russia and Croatia is underway.
- 5' - The referee is likely to let players tackle, as he already missed some meaty challenges during opening seconds. He is still to establish what should not be done by the players and what is acceptable on the pitch. It’s going to be a tough game for Denis Cheryshev suffering a number of foals already.
- 10' - Croatia looks like a favorite considering 0 games won in last 1 matches with its main striker Andrej Kramaric scoring 1 goals.
- 15' - Spectators are craving for more action. Both teams play very cautiously. They need to put some more energy.
- 20' - Both teams are passing the ball around with high level of urgency. Russia needs to do something about it to get closer to the goal.
- 25' - Not even hints on scoring a goal over the last 25 minutes.
- 30' - The teams are not in a rush to score plenty of goals. It might look strange considering Russia that had 102 games and scored 14 goals.
- 31' - Goal! Denis Cheryshev scores his 17 goal in 183 matches.
- 35' - The referee calls foul for Dejan Lovren. He receives a Yellow card.
- 38' - Ivan Strinić is having his name booked by the referee on 38.
- 39' - Goal! Andrej Kramarić scores his 33 goal in 168 matches.
- 44' - Croatia is showing some good football. However, Croatia are ready to play back every minute. It might result in some problems for the home side. The game will hardly remain goalless.
- 49' - While there is no rush on the pitch, let’s have a look at some stats. Ivan Rakitic made 208 appearances and scored 10 goals. He is very likely to score a goal today.
- 54' - Time for substitution for Russia. Aleksandr Samedov is replaced by Aleksandr Erokhin.
- 59' - Marcelo Brozovic has certainly something to prove this evening. He made 32 appearances with only 3 goals this season.
- 63' - Marcelo Brozović has so much to prove this time. He replaces Ivan Perišić on 63 minute.
- 67' - It is a substitution in Russia team. Denis Cheryshev is replaced by Fedor Smolov on 67 minute.
- 72' - Croatia seems to be on a short break. The game is mainly concentrated in the center. It’s high time they got back to action. Otherwise, it looks like a goalless game.
- 74' - Josip Pivarić has so much to prove this time. He replaces Ivan Strinić on 74 minute.
- 79' - Another change for Russia made on 79 minute. Artem Dzyuba leaves to be changed by Yury Gazinskiy.
- 84' - Although teams showed high tempo form the start, they seem to slow down a bit. Both sides really need to catch a fire. Otherwise, we have another goalless match.
- 88' - Mateo Kovačić has so much to prove this time. He replaces Andrej Kramarić on 88 minute.
- The final score is 2-2.
