Croatia go through.

They showed their penalty shootout experience there while Japan looked like they had never had one in their lives.

Got to admire the Croats, they constantly punch above their weight in World Cups and now they are into another quarter final.

No power or air in any of the penalty shots. Made it to easy for the keepers. Great saves by the Croatian keeper, but Japan didn't handle the pressure when it came to taking their kicks.

Japan sh!t the bed piss poor penalties!

Gotta say not a fan of the 3rd person view behind the penalty taker for the shootout. Don’t know just doesn’t feel right or give a good perspective.

The thing with penalties is that if the keeper goes the other way and it goes in then no one says anything about it being a poor penalty. Same with the opposite, last penalty by Pasalic was nothing special, if the keeper went the correct way he would have saved it and everyone would be saying how poor it was.

Anyhow Croatia get through but you would think they will be stuffed no matter who they play next. Looked very tired by the end and with the short turnaround will most likely be out of gas early on.

Unless Brazil and South Korea also go to penalties in a helter skelter bombastic style of match of course.

Kind of weird Quarter Final scheduling. France and England won yesterday and play on Sunday morning. Croatia and Brazil/South Korea won today and play on Saturday morning.

The blue Samurai set pieces are almost instruction manual like. All parts falling into place. They execute with honour by respecting the game and opponents.

I like the Japanese team. They are the opposite of the Aussie shithousery.

Oh come on that's not a pen. The Korean was already in kicking motion, the Brazillian came from behind. Bullsh*t call.
