    Russia's team is even more boring than the Swedish one. It's almost impressive.

    Offensive XI from Croatia. They're going for it.

    Good to see they at least won't go into this one with the same game plan as Spain did.

    I kind of like Russia here. I don't have a good reason why though (and originally had Croatia)

    You might as well take a healthy sleep. Why waste time? :)

    If Russia allows a goal early, it could be over. We’ll see another bus today from Russia.

    I love the Russian national anthem. That being said, let's go Croatia!

    A superficial point, but I don't like the amount of white on Russia's shirts.

    Mind, there's a part of me that keeps looking for the 'CCCP' legend to appear across their chests.

    A pleasingly positive start by both sides here.

    Croatia is testing the Kudryashov’s flank.

    Golovin couldn't have complained here if he got a yellow for stopping the free kick.

    Isn't it a yellow for blocking a quick take? I recall David Luiz getting one in I think the CL for doing that.

    It happens often to get that carded.

    Kudryashov will cost this team sooner or later.
