Tournament favourites Brazil have been knocked out of the World Cup after losing to Croatia who won on penalties 4-2 in their quarter-final clash.
The match had finished goalless after normal time.
Then superstar Neymar equalled Pele’s Brazil scoring record with 77 FIFA-registered goals to give his side the lead in the first half of extra time at Education City Stadium.
However, Bruno Petkovic equalised with just four minutes left as the game ended 1-1.
Brazil had outclassed South Korea in their round of 16 tie with a 4-1 win – and they were hotly tipped to add another World Cup title to their five so far.
However, Croatian goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic who once again proved the hero for the 2018 runners-up.
He made three penalty saves in Croatia’s gruelling last 16 tie against Japan and pulled off a string of saves to deny Brazil during the goalless first 90 minutes.
Livakovic then saved a shootout penalty from Rodrygo and Marquinhos hit the post.
