Brazil vs Croatia Live, World Cup 2022 Quarter Final: Croatia defeated Brazil 4-2 on penalties in the quarter-finals of the World Cup on Friday. Croatia were resilient in the 90 minutes, keeping Brazil out of their goal until a moment of magic from Neymar put them ahead. In the dying moments of extra time, a defected strike from Bruno Petkovic took the game to penalties.

Each of Croatia’s four penalty takers – Nikola Vlasic, Mislav Orsic, Lovro Majer, and Luka Modric – found the net but the same couldn’t be said for Brazil. Rodrygo’s opening penalty was saved by Dominik Livakovic, who had an standout performance through the game, and Marquinhos hit the post to knock out the Brazil team that were largely considered pre-tournament favourites.

Lineups:

Brazil (4-3-3): Alisson; Militao, T. Silva, Marquinhos, Danilo; Casemiro, Lucas Paqueta, Neymar; Raphinha, Vinicius, Richarlison.

Croatia (4-3-3): Livakovic; Juranovic, Lovren, Gvardiol,  Sosa; Modric, Brozovic, Kovacic; Pasalic, Perisic, Kramaric.

Final thoughts: Ruthless tournament football strikes again

What a game. What a result. Tournament football is brutal, and Brazil have encountered that fact with all its might.

Croatia deserve massive credit for their game plan, playing right out of the hands of the individually talented Brazilians, using the technical ability of their midfielders to keep a lot of slow possession, not allowing Brazil time and enough of the ball to create enough chances. So proficient was their ability to move the ball in midfield that Brazil were, at times, frightened of pressing them too intensely, in case space opens up in behind them.

Dominik Livakovic was show-stopping in goal, Josko Gvardiol was impressively composed and solid in defence, and Luka Modric was terrific in midfield.

Croatia’s strategy was effective, but not enough to keep out a moment of genius from Neymar. Ultimately, Brazil conceded a soft goal, and failed to manage the game in the dying moments. Croatia’s fighting spirit went on a bit longer, and they stole the win at the end.

Another incredible World Cup result in a tournament full of them.
