SUMMARY BRAZIL (1-1, pen. 2-4) CROATIA
Croatia, current world runner-up, put an end to Brazil’s dream of achieving the ‘hexacampeonato’ by beating Canarinha 4-2 in a penalty shootout after ending the match with a goalless tie and extra time tied at one.
Bruno Petkovic, with a goal in the 116th minute, had neutralized the goal that Neymar Jr had previously achieved in extra time and that seemed to take Brazil to the quarterfinals. With morale through the roof, Croatia once again survived on penalties, in which they scored all the shots and Rodrygo and Marquinhos missed.
