  • Ivan Rakitic of Croatia celebrates after scoring his team's third goal during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group D match between Argentina and Croatia at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium on June

Croatia have won all their Group D matches, including a 3-0 hammering of Lionel Messi's Argentina.

Asked about Eriksen, Modric said: "I don't like to compare players, particularly to compare others with myself".

Croatia have an experienced squad which could at least match their best-ever finish of a third place which happened in 1998 World Cup.

Rakitic sends Croatia to the Quarterfinals!

"I was nine years old".

Sweden crashes Mexico 3-0 at FIFA World Cup match in Yekaterinburg
Mexico , who lost 3-0 to Sweden , go through in second place, while the Swedes took top spot in an incredible Group F. The changes made for a balanced team that was relieved to pull out the win against Sweden .

Denmark, which is set to take on Croatia Sunday, suffered its last defeat against Montenegro in 2016 in the World Cup qualifiers. We do not think we are favourites in the game against Denmark.

"The type of game we will play will be different, we need to play differently to progress".

As far as fans takeover goes, this is about as good as it gets.

Marcelo Brozovic - 5 - Anchored the midfield diligently as he occupied a more deep-lying midfield role to release the shackles from Modric and Rakitic. When Ivan Rakitić calmly buried the decisive penalty, the fans in Croatia immediately ignited flares to start one insane party. Ivan Perisic takes and it hits the wall. Croatia hit back immediately, though, when Mario Mandzukic squeezed home a finish at the near post after some awful defending from the Danes. "The fact they have gone 18 games unbeaten speaks volumes", he said.

Luka Modric - Arguably, Modric was the best player from the group stages and the midfielder will again be key in exploiting spaces against a resilient Denmark side.

In extra time, Knudsen's long throws proved the most unsafe attacking weapon but eventually it was penalties that delivered a victor.

"We're not going to lose 0-5 by trying to play tiki-taka football".

The following 116 minutes though largely failed to live up to the first four, fireworks giving way to a damp squib of an encounter as the game edged inexorably towards extra time and penalties. The center-back pairing of Andreas Christensen and Simon Kjaer look like a flawless combination of youth and experience, while the team around them are physically strong and well-organized.

Kasper Schmeichel - 8 - Constantly instructing his defensive line, Schmeichel was commanding between the sticks, quick off his line and produced some solid saves, including a last minute penalty save, as he also went on to produce a sensational performance during the penalty shoot-out.
