Video Details

What a goal! Vida gets credited with the late goal that trickles through the Russia defense to give Croatia a 2-1 lead in extra time of the quarterfinals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup™. Sponsored by adidas.

JOHN: --for Croatia, Modric in. Header, took a redirection, it's in the back of the net! Croatia scored! Vida celebrating, whether his last touch or not. Croatia takes the lead in extra time!


Akinfeev wanted to get on the end of the cross. Kutepov, whether he was playing safe or didn't hear the shouts, steered it out for a corner. Croatia converts.

ANNOUNCER 1: And just how cruel this game could be, John. A missed chance for Russia down the other end. And then straight away, Croatia drive. They win a corner kick. And it's another set piece in this tournament. Vida does well. He heads it down into a dangerous area. And it's Corluka who's in the middle, who just challenges for it, doesn't get a touch on it.

Akinfeev can't react at this point because he has to wait and see if there's going to be any touch. It's a great header, just gets anything on it. And then just watch in agony as that one finds the side netting.

And what a time for a goal for Croatia. He's going to be pick up a yellow card, but he doesn't care.
