The fourth Quarter-Final of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia will be between Croatia and the hosts. Both teams are coming from the opposite ends of the spectrum, and this matchup will be interesting to witness.
It can very well be said that Croatia are the best team in the tournament. Barring only two minutes of adversity against Denmark, the team has never been behind in this tournament. They have always controlled the pace of the game.
They possess one of the most swashbuckling midfield. With the likes of captain Luka Modric, Marcelo Brozovic, Ivan Rakitic and Ivan Perisic, you can easily pinpoint the strengths the team has within them
One of the best things about this team is that they stick together as a unit and don’t let egos come into play.
Their opponents Russia, one the other hand, have been sensational in the World Cup. It is awe-inspiring to see that the team won the game against Spain in the penalty shootouts and secured a spot in the Quarter-Finals.
They are the lowest ranked team in the tournament, but they sure don’t play that way and with the help of the home support, Russia has produced some commanding displays on the pitch.
It will be intriguing to see till when can they carry on with this dream.
