Brazil crash out of World Cup after Croatia’s incredible comeback

Must read

World Cup favourites Brazil have crashed out of the tournament in incredible fashion, losing to Croatia on penalties having already had one foot in the semifinals.

A beautifully worked extra-time goal was finished off by Brazil’s talisman Neymar to give the South Americans the lead and surely seal the game.

But Croatia, finalists in Russia four years ago, refused to lie down and dramatically equalised through Bruno Petkovic in the 117th minute to take the game to penalties. It was Croatia’s first shot on target all game.

Croatia were flawless in the shootout, while Dominik Livakovic saved Rodrygo’s spot-kick and Marquinhos hit the post.
