Bruno Petkovic won the match with four minutes remaining. The game was ended 1-1.

Dominik Livakovic, a Croatian goalkeeper, was the 2018 runners-up.
He saved three penalties in Croatia’s last 16 match against Japan, and pulled off a series of saves to deny Brazil within the first 90 minutes.
Livakovic saved Rodrygo’s shootout penalty and Marquinhos missed the post.
Zlatko Dlic, the winning coach, stated that “this is only for the Croatian people.”
“A fantastic match from the very first minute to the last. We eliminated the most popular players. We are not done yet. Let’s go on.
“This victory is for everyone, everyone did their best. Also, thanks to the bench who live for this national team.
