"I liked being in Sochi very much today as well as in Nizhny Novgorod a few days ago". According to a statement from the Federation Internationale de Football Association press service, the fine is related to an incident in which members of the Croatian national team were seen drinking "non-authorized beverage products", that is, drinks that were not officially approved as part of the sponsorship deal for the World Cup.

The Croats won all three games to top Group D ahead of second-placed Argentina and then edged Denmark in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw.

"However, if talk sport, it brings us together", she added.

Croatia's president asked Medvedev to convey her greetings to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"It is a pity he is not here today", Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic said.

But Fernandes, the man whose goal took it to pens, put the ball wide the very next spot kick.

Rakitic then scored his second penalty shoot-out victor in two games.

By the time it came to the shootout, both sets of players were exhausted, as Ivan Rakitic struck the victor for Croatia after Russian misses from Fernandes and Fyodor Smolov.

Croatia goalkeeper Danijel Subasic saves Russia's first penalty in the shootout to decide their Fifa World Cup quarterfinal in Sochi. But Croatia made it 1-1 just eight minutes later thanks to a headed goal from striker Andrej Kramaric.

That Croatia side hammered Germany 3-0 to reach the semis in France, and Dalic is looking for a similar result on Saturday.

But with five minutes to go before the end of extra time Mario Fernandes scored to force penalties. "We were lucky. I was concentrating throughout the match, but after that penalty it came bursting out of me".

And it was Lovren's team that prevailed 4-3 in the shootout when Barcelona star Ivan Rakitic netted the decisive kick.

Cherchesov feels his country grew to love his players during famous wins over Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Spain but says they must look to achieve more in the future.

Many fans gave him a standing ovation when he was taken off in the second half.
