Lovren's Croatia qualify for World Cup quarter-finals

Denmark's Christian Eriksen fights for the ball with Montenegro's Adam Marusic and Vladimir Jovovic during the FIFA WC 2018 Group E football qualification match between

The last meeting between these two teams came in 2004 where Croatia beat Denmark 2-1 in a friendly.

44' - Mario Mandzukic, who scored Croatia's goal in the fourth minute, goes down with what appears to be an ankle injury.

Liverpool defender Lovren glanced Luka Modric's free-kick wide late in the first period, before the sides played out a keenly-contested - and goalless - second half.

They could have wrapped up the result five minutes from the end of extra time but Luka Modric had his penalty saved by Kasper Schmeichel as a largely pedestrian match produced a pulsating finish.

However, despite Schmeichel's heroics, which saw him save another two spot kicks, it was his counterpart, Danijel Subasic, who denied three Danish players to send Croatia through to the last eight. Of course, that meant nothing to a pair of teams that saw Russian Federation upset Spain in their corner of the bracket just an hour before the start of their round-of-16 match.

Shock Germany win 'shook South Korea upside down'
The results on the afternoon in question saw Mexico lose to Sweden 0-3 and South Korea surprising Germany 2-0 . South Korea's win and Sweden turning over Mexico ended their dreams of retaining their title.

It didn't take long for the Croats to equalise, though, as Mario Mandžukić drew his side level nearly immediately after the restart to net from close range and against the run of play, 1-1.

He also praised his fellow goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel for his role with the Danish team.

Croatia, previously a part of the former Yugoslavia, only made their World Cup debut in 1998 and that team memorably went all the way to the semi-finals in France before losing to the hosts and eventual winners.

Croatia will once again depend on Modric, who has been in outstanding form, and fellow midfielder Ivan Rakitic to deliver the goods. They punctuated a ideal 3-0 record with a resounding 3-0 win over Lionel Messi and Argentina.

Cristiano still has a lot to give to the game", Santos said when asked if he felt his captain would carry on representing his country.

The Real Madrid man stepped up - but Schmeichel guessed the right way to not only save but also hold the spot-kick to take the game into a shootout.

45' - Substitution: Denmark's Lasse Schöne replaces Andreas Christensen. He wasn't just an effective attacking outlet, but an extra defender as well.

It may not have been the end he wanted to his first campaign as Denmark manager, but Hareide said he was already looking forward to building on what the team had achieved in Russian Federation.

Subs: Lossl, Krohn-Dehli, Vestergaard, Kvist, Nicolai Jorgensen, Dolberg, Fischer, Larsen, Lerager, Schone, Sisto, Ronnow.
