Russian fans sad but proud after World Cup exit

Flooding forces Croatia training session relocation ahead of World Cup quarterfinal

In the video, which has been widely circulated on social media, Vida shouts "Glory to Ukraine" in Ukrainian and Vukojevic says "this victory is for Dynamo and for Ukraine" in Croatian.

The striker Fyodor Smolov struck an apologetic tone after failing to score during the tournament and missing in Saturday's shootout, saying "what you'd like to say yesterday and today about me, in your place I'd feel the same".

- Croatia are just the second side to progress on a penalty shootout in consecutive knockout games in a World Cup tournament after Argentina in 1990.

Joy quickly turned to anguish however as the defender completely missed the target, sending a low effort round the wrong side of the post and giving Croatia the advantage.

Russia's fairytale run at the 2018 World Cup has finally ended after they were beaten 4-3 on penalties by Croatia in the last quarter final match on Saturday.

It was followed by Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimea peninsula and a pro-Kremlin separatist war in eastern Ukraine that has claimed more than 10,000 lives. "I've got friends there since I joined Dynamo Kyiv, I didn't mean anything else".

Russian Federation has claimed the territory since 2014, despite worldwide condemnation.

Domagoj Vida's shirt was off in a flash as he celebrated his goal against Russian Federation in the World Cup quarterfinals. Vukojevic also played for the club and now works for them as a scout.

The players and head coach Stanislav Cherchesov have been invited by Putin to "to sum up the results of the championship and discuss Russia's World Cup heritage", Peskov told Russian news agency TASS on Sunday.

A similar incident occurred in Switzerland's game with Serbia when Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka made politically charged gestures in their 2-1 over their opponents.

Croatia, for whom Andrej Kramaric and Domagoj Vida had earlier found the net, advance to their first World Cup semi-final since 1998.

While Croatia's Marcelo Brozovic, Luka Modric, Domagoj Vida and Ivan Rakitic were on target in the tiebreaker, Mateo Kovacic failed to convert.
