We bring you exclusive coverage of the last eight showdown
The hosts went into the tournament as the lowest-ranked team but knocked out the mighty Spain on penalties in the last 16 and, with a raucous crowd behind them at the Fisht Stadium, will never have a better chance of reaching the semi-finals of a World Cup.
They’ll have a tough job on their hands getting past Croatia, however, as they have impressed in this tournament and boast two of the world’s outstanding midfield players in Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic.
When is Russia vs Croatia?
The match kicks off at 19:00 (UK time) on Saturday, July 7.
