(7 Jul 2018) Although Russia made it further at this year's World Cup than most anyone expected, it was Croatia that advanced to the semifinals with a 4-3 shootout victory on Saturday following a 2-2 draw. Fans in Moscow were disappointed, but also hugely proud of their team for making it this far in the competition. The overachieving hosts, the lowest ranked team in the tournament at No. 70, were trying to make it to the World Cup semifinals for the first time since the Soviet Union finished fourth at the 1966 tournament in England. It was the second straight time both teams played in a shootout. Russia beat Spain 4-3 and Croatia defeated Denmark 3-2 in the round of 16. Winners Croatia will next play England in the semifinals on Wednesday in Moscow.
