Ok, not the most exciting of games coming up, but it'll surely be worth a watch.

Croatia qualified mostly trouble free, despite the scare against Iceland. How will they fare against Denmark? They've got the quality to see them off and Modric looks in top form. Got top players in the likes of Mandzukic, Rakitic and Rebic.

But Denmark are no mugs, earning a creditable 0-0 draw with France and navigating their group well, only conceding 1 goal in the process. Do they have enough quality to beat Croatia and win their first knockout game since 1998?

Got to fancy Croatia of taking this one, although I think it could go to extra time quite easily.

Good open game this, both teams going for it. Neither look anything special, but tidy enough. Croatia probably had the better of the chances, but the Danes look like they could nick it.

After a cracking opening 10 minutes this game has turned to shite. Surprised to see Denmark have been the better team. Hopefully that translates to a win.

Neither team looks very good. Russia should fancy themselves against either of these 2, as should anyone left in the bottom half of this bracket.

Croatia have been very poor, they’ll be lucky to get through.
If we can beat Columbia Tuesday I’d seriously fancy us to get to the final.

Croatia are better than this, some of the best midfielders in Europe should be creating more

Croatia won't be this shit every game. I'd much sooner they lose for precisely that reason.

Very disappointed in Croatia - Denmark done a job on them so far.


Russia v Denmark might not be a great match for the neutral though!

Didn't get the ball. What a c*** for Denmark.

Croatia don't deserve it.

Should've given the goal instead. Not that you can in the rulebook or anything. But that was Suarezesque.

That also has to give KS massive confidence if it goes to penalties.

That was really, really unfair. He was just about to tap it into the open net, gets fouled and that's that.

Fucking hell this has Ghana written all over it.

It really wasn't as he tried to take the ball in the challenge. It was a penalty but I don't believe he set out to foul him.

That was brilliant, sickening if you're a Croatia supporter though.

That’s why he was only given a yellow as the rules were changed so that if the offender had made an honest attempt to win the ball they should not be excessively penalised.

It was Suarezesque as in it was a goal (he really can't miss) stopped by a foul. But yeah fair point.
