Default Quarter Final: Russia - Croatia; 07.07.2018 19:00 CET





  • The two previous competitive meetings, in qualifying for Euro 2008, both ended 0-0.
  • The only other encounter was a friendly match in November 2015 which saw the Croats win 3-1 in Rostov-on-Don. The Russians led at half-time through Fedor Smolov's goal but second-half strikes from Nikola Kalinic, Marcelo Brozovic and Mario Mandzukic won it for the visitors.

  • Yuri Zhirkov, who began Russia's last game at left wing-back, is ruled out with a calf problem.
  • Alan Dzagoev, who has not played since damaging his hamstring in the opening match, could come back into contention despite a back problem.
  • Croatia's Ivan Strinic appeared to be nursing an injury when he was subbed after 81 minutes against Denmark, but is expected to be available.
  • Mateo Kovacic, who has been troubled by a shoulder problem, should also be fit.

He will rotating at #10 with hakan.

Safest way to integrate him and in a couple of seasons he can be moved back to deeper position.

On the one hand i want Russia to win. Just imagine the wonders it would do for the game over there

But then on the other hand I want the Real LM10 to cement his GOAT status with Croatia.

There is no way to get him for such a laughable price.

Quick question folks

Is the modern Russian anthem same as the old USSR one ?

Sounds quite similar
