England the biggest winners as exhausted Croatia edge out raucous Russia

A second penalty shootout win sent Zlatko Dalic's side into the World Cup semi-finals, but the Three Lions will be licking their lips

Croatia's World Cup clash with Russia was one of those truly special games that produced more than one set of winners.

Obviously, there was Zlatko Dalic's players, who realised their dream of emulating the heroes of the 1998 World Cup in France by triumphing 4-3 on penalties to progress to the last four.

But there was also the host nation's incredible fans, who generated the most remarkable atmosphere of the tournament to date, so nearly inspiring their side to another upset win.
