When extra time began at the Education City Stadium, superstar Neymar scored his 77th goal for Brazil, tying Pele’s record for most goals in a single game. This gave his team the lead.

After extra time, the score remained tied at 1 until Bruno Petkovic scored an equaliser with four seconds left.
Brazilians were heavily favoured to add another World Cup championship to their five already after outclassing South Korea 4-1 in their round of 16 match.

However, the 2018 runners-up were once more saved by Croatian goalie Dominik Livakovic.

In Croatia’s grueling match against Japan in the round of 16, he made three saves in penalty kicks, and during the first 90 minutes of the match without a goal, he made several saves to keep Brazil out.

Rodrygo’s shootout penalty was subsequently saved by Livakovic, and Marquinhos struck the post.

Zlatko Dalic, the victorious coach, remarked, “This is solely for the Croatian people.”

“A fantastic game from the opening to the last seconds. We disqualified the strongest favourites. We should continue on; this is not the end for us.”

“Everyone gave their best effort, and this is a win for all of us. I’d also want to thank the bench players who are similarly passionate about this national team.”

With this defeat, Neymar dreams of lifting the World Cup comes crashing as many speculate that this would be his last World Cup, as claimed by Neymar.
