08 Jul 00:58

Stanislav Cherchesov has changed tactics – today we are playing four at the back.

Played Akinfeev Rebić drilled a dangerous cross along the goal. Angular.

July 08, 01:09

Ten minutes of the match. While Croats are more dangerous. Angular. Modric put the stands under the whistle, but the film knocked.

July 08, 01:12

For several crosses from the right flank were Croats. Need something to do with it!

July 08, 01:13

Dzyuba struggled to pass Samedova canopy, but Cheryshev failed.

July 08, 01:29

Look at how concentrated Igor Akinfeev.

July 08, 01:30


July 08, 01:33

However, I’ve hit Cheryshev from outside the penalty area. DARISE! Cheers, friends!

July 08, 01:35

Stanislav Cherchesov encourages players just to calm the game.

July 08, 01:36

Not for nothing, apparently, fans across the country scored the fan zone to the eyeballs – our team shows them standing in the game.

Samara Kuibyshev square, which is 20,000 fans, are unable to accommodate all who want to watch the match. Hundreds Samartsev crowd around the checkpoint.

In one place of fans were held back by police

And those who failed to get into the fan zone

July 08, 01:38

Look at the joy of the fans and players!

July 08, 01:38

For the second yellow awarded to players of Croatia. It seems that they can’t move away from the goal.

July 08, 01:39

Cheryshev tried to reach the ball after a pass of the headlights. Failed.

July 08, 01:40

The Croats equalised. Naked in the locker room.

Kramaric equalized

July 08, 01:41

A very offensive goal: for the first time gave our defenders the freedom of the players of the national team of Croatia. And so…

July 08, 01:45

This is a very bad sign when a team concede goals before the break. Our guys need as soon as possible to forget about this unfortunate moment.

July 08, 01:47

July 08, 02:05

The second half started!

July 08, 02:07

Should help kokoshniks!

July 08, 02:08

While attacking the Croats. Should one shed after the other.

July 08, 02:09

Fan zone in Rostov-na-Donu, too crowded, let’s see how passionate the fans:

Jul 08 02:10

I think that soon in the national team of Russia will take place the first replacement. Need a fresh player. Maybe release Dzagoev?

July 08, 02:11

The impact of Kramerica on goal Akinfeev, but the goalkeeper was in place.

July 08, 02:11

Coming soon Erokhin – should help in the game at the top.

July 08, 02:16

Cherchesov is trying to change the game – on the field Samedov came Erokhin.

July 08, 02:18

Went wrong game our team…

July 08, 02:19

That’s the luck! After hitting the ball hit the post!

July 08, 02:21

After a corner Dzyuba struck with the head strike. Immediately after that, he got hit in the face with your hand!!! The judge!!!

08 Jul 02:22

Salamis, we believe in you!

08 Jul 02:22

Live from a crowded fan zone of Yekaterinburg

July 08, 02:23

Very hard to have our defenders in the second half.

July 08, 02:25

Coming soon to a field Smolov. Probably, it will replace Dzyuba, Artem while very useful plays.

July 08, 02:26

But out Denis Cheryshev – Cherchesov decides to leave the film. It seems that this is the right decision.

July 08, 02:29

Look at emotions.

08 Jul 02:30

Finally managed to attack: Fernandez hung, and Erokhin, but his shot was a little higher.

08 Jul 02:30

For the Russian national team cheer even in space!

Jul 08 02:34

More than 44 thousand spectators in the stands!

Jul 08 02:34

A lot of fight in the second half, the tension increases!

July 08, 02:35

15 minutes left!

July 08, 02:36

The Croats served the corner. Above the gate.

July 08, 02:38

Dziuba goes away – instead, he went Gazinskaya.

The time to think about the poster, which in the beginning was the cheerleader. Team without Dzuba.

July 08, 02:39

Kuziaev sweep, but none of our players did not expect such transmission.

July 08, 02:40

Erokhin lies – he got to my belly.

July 08, 02:41

Crush the Croats – they carried out one attack after another.

July 08, 02:42

Who is the handsome? Fernandez. Mario great substitute to striker Croatia was hit.

July 08, 02:43

Croatian Vrsaljko is penalised for handball and we get right to the box.

July 08, 02:43

Golovin put. But the Croats beat.

July 08, 02:45

Smolov is useless. Fyodor, you might never get the chance to prove himself at the world Cup. Try already!

July 08, 02:46

Angular canopy, but the judge fixes a foul in the attack. Carried.

July 08, 02:47

Perfectly supports the Fisht!

July 08, 02:48

It seems that the goalkeeper of Croats, though pulled hamstring. The replacements they have are no more!

July 08, 02:49

Preparing a backup goalie, but he can only go in extra time!

July 08, 02:51

Almost conceded from a corner.

July 08, 02:53

Fans in Novocherkassk were glued to screens

July 08, 02:53

Nice pitch shot into the near corner but the goalkeeper was in place.

Traditional joke about Medvedev.

08 Jul 03:01

Began extra time! The break was short.

08 Jul 03:02

08 Jul 03:11

The Russians missed out on the 100-th minute of the match. It’s a shame. But there’s still time!

08 Jul 03:12

On the field there was Dzagoev. Left very little time to save this match, which is so well begun.

July 08, 03:13

A dangerous cross, but ended with only a corner.

08 Jul 03:14

Erokhin was beaten after a pass from the corner. By.

08 Jul 03:44

All hope for Akinfeev. But Horvath got.

Again, I believe in Igor. Everything depends on him. PULLED!

Jul 08 03:46

July 08, 03:47

Modric. Akinfeev touched the ball, but rod – and then the ball was in the goal.

July 08, 03:48

Ignashevich scored.

08 Jul 03:49

Kind of accurate.

08 Jul 03:49

It seems that all. Now has kuziaev. If you do not score, the match ends. It’s accurate.
