Spain 1 Russia 1 (Russia win on penalties)
I was happy the Spanish lost. Im tired of seeing Ramos and co win. Give someone else a chance. I also back the hosts at any tournament. It keeps the Carnival atmosphere. Russia must have been off the hook last night. But hey credit to the Russians.They fought,held on and beat the Spanish on penaltys. Mnay great keepers are always poor at penalties. DDG was no different. Also penalties a re a Lucky packet. The Russians advanced,Ramos cried,Salah smiled,Liverpool fans rejoiced and Moscow partied into the night.
Croatia 1 Denmark 1 (Croatia win on penalties)
Croatia are Dark horses for the World Cup for me. A solid outfit and ofcourse juves Mario Manzukich. The danes grabbed the lead in the first minute only for the Juve man to equalise and then it became a dogged battle. Modric penalty miss at the death summed up Croatias night. Its as if the football Gods didnt want them to progress. Casper Shmeichel was cheered on by his father,the Legendary Mna Utd stopper Peter. He was outstanding in the penalty shoot out. He almost saved Modric penalty again. But the Danes took pooer spot kicks and Croatia Lived to face the Russians in the quarter final
