World Cup Croatia vs Brazil
Venue: Education City Stadium
It was not easy for Croatia to play in the group stage. The team had a difficult draw with Belgium in the last round and was able to overwhelm their opponents and qualify for the second place in Group F. The "Lattice Legion" has left too many stories related to tenacity on the stage of the World Cup, and it is still the same this year. In the 1/8 final against the Asian powerhouse Japan, Perisic scored a header to help the team equalize the score. The two sides drew 1:1 in regular time and overtime. In the end, the Croatian team relied on goalkeeper Livakovic’s 3 saves in the penalty shootout to eliminate Japan and advance to the top 8, once again showing the tenacity of the “Grid Army” and fighting spirit. Having eliminated the fierce "Blue Warrior", the Plaid Army is about to usher in the favorite Brazil team in the quarter-finals. Let's see how the old and hardy Croats continue to use their "drag trick".
As the most popular title contender in this World Cup, Brazil advanced to the knockout stage with the first place in the group. The number one star Neymar was injured in the first game for 2 consecutive truces. In the 1/8 finals against South Korea, the eager Neymar started the game with his unhealed ankle. Facing South Korea, the Brazilian team bombed indiscriminately. Vinicius made a pass, Neymar made a penalty kick, Richarlison and Paqueta scored one after another. With fantasy, he scored 4 goals in a row in the first half and wrote the ending for his opponent early. In the end, the five-star Brazil defeated the South Korean team 4:1 without any suspense, advancing strongly to the quarterfinals. Next, they will compete with the "Lattice Legion" for the semifinals. From the perspective of overall strength, Brazil is undoubtedly the dominant side.
Historical record: Croatia has 0 wins, 0 draws and 3 losses in the last 3 games
