In the later match in Sochi, Russia's fairytale run came to a halt as they were beaten on penalties by Croatia after 120 gruelling minutes of football.

Russian Federation - the lowest-ranked nation at their own tournament - refused to die despite enjoying just 36 percent of possession against a superior Croatian team led by Luka Modric.
