Russia take on Croatia in the fourth quarter-final of Wold Cup 2018 this evening, which takes place at Fisht Stadium in Sochi.

The teams still left in this stage of the competition know they have a very strong chance of lifting the famous trophy, and the pressure will be on the host country most of all, as they aim to continue defying expectations.

They entered this tournament placed 70th in the FIFA ranking system, the lowest of all participating nations, and knowing they had failed to progress beyond the group stage since the end of the Soviet era.

However, after winning their first two group-stage matches to secure their place in the last-16, they followed that with a victory over 2010 champions Spain courtesy of a dramatic penalty shootout in which Igor Akinfeev saved two spot kicks.

Croatia also qualified for this match after winning a penalty shootout against fellow Europeans Denmark, despite missing two of their spot kicks.

Luka Modric could have sealed the tie in the closing minutes of extra time but saw his tame effort from the penalty spot saved by Kasper Schmeichel, though the former Spurs midfielder had the courage to step up to the mark once again minutes later, and this time converted successfully to contribute to his side’s victory.

Coverage begins at 6.00pm on ITV and ITV HD, where Mark Pougatch will be joined live in the studio by Slaven Bilic, Gary Neville and Lee Dixon.

Match commentary comes from Jon Champion and Ally McCoist.
