Luka Modric hails "world class" Christian Eriksen ahead of last-16 tie
Croatia won all three of their group stage matches at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but Denmark also made it through their group unbeaten and the two will now meet in a knockout match on Sunday.
Perisic fired in another threatening ball as Croatia carried the lion's share of the attacking threat, but Denmark came forward and star man Christian Eriksen's strike cannoned to safety.
Schmeichel guessed right to thwart Pivaric with a diving stop, Jorgensen's penalty down the middle then blocked by Subasic after he had failed to fool the keeper with a stop-start run-up. "He saved three penalties in a shootout". If you knew who he was, it most likely was because you were either Danish, an Ipswich Town supporter or someone who had read about how the Denmark squad had chipped in to rent a private jet so he could fly home to see his newborn baby.
Wow. Wow. Wow. The 2018 World Cup keeps delivering classics and we are in for another cracking one after the grueling Spain vs Russian Federation epic show which saw the 2010 World Cup winners dumped out by the host nation.
Denmark (4-3-3): 1. Kasper Schmeichel (gk), 14. The Denmarkgoalkeeper, who also saved a pair of penalties in the shootout, dived to his left to smother Modric's attempt in the 116th minute.

It was a fantastic save from El Hadary, who at the age of 45, makes his finals debut in Volgograd. Saudi Arabia were thumped 5-0 by Russian Federation and then lost 1-0 to an unconvincing Uruguay.
After surviving the shootout, Subasic had to survive the celebration.
"It will be a tough match, like any other game so far".
Age Hareide's Denmark side are extremely disciplined and hard to break down, pretty much the polar opposite of the disheveled Argentina side that Croatia made mincemeat of last week.

However, it wasn't too long - three minutes to be exact - when Croatia produced an equaliser through Mario Mandzukic. It struck early, leading directly to the opener and it struck late, sending fear through the Croatian defensive ranks towards the end of the 90 minutes and throughout extra time.
The Croats earned the penalty when Ante Rebic was set free on a counterattack and skipped past Schmeichel, only to be fouled from behind by Mathias Jorgensen - the scorer of Denmark'sgoal. "That's just the brutality of football".

Only one can advance, and Portugal needs to play better than it did in tying Spain and Iran. "That is an additional factor. Jose Gimenez could return for Uruguay after he missed the final group game against Russian Federation with a back injury.
Lakers have 'inside track' to signing LeBron James
James is a 14-time All-Star, a 14-time All-NBA selection, six-time All-Defense selection, a four-time MVP and three-time champion. James is also being pursued by the Lakers, who have enough salary-cap space to sign him and another star player.
