After the interval, the chances were even more sparse although Croatia did up the tempo towards the end of regulation time only to run into a resolute Denmark defense. Jorgensen brought him down from behind, and a yellow card was given as per the recent rule where you can't have a penalty kick and a red card if the player is going for the ball.
Croatia topped their group, winning all three of their group games.
"There has been a lot of comparison between those two teams", Inter winger Ivan Perisic said this week.
Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic, however, has warned his team-mates they will need to keep a close eye on Eriksen on Sunday. A Denmark clearance attempt from its own area bounced off a defender, right into the path of Mario Mandzukic. Croatia equalise through Mario Mandzukic's goal. Ante Rebic 10. Luka Modric (c), 4.
Hareide made his remarks at a press conference ahead of Sunday's last-16 match against Croatia, reports Efe. Four minutes later, we went on to penalties.
William Kvist is again a doubt for this match. In team news, Yussuf Poulsen is likely to return to the side after serving his suspension against France.
England and Belgium make wholesale changes
After that, if England weren't knocked out, we would've been up against Uruguay, Portugal, France, Argentina, Brazil, or Mexico. Below are more details on the broadcast, which will be aired in Spanish and will begin at 1:30 p.m.
Luka Modric and Ivan Perisic are set to be the only players retaining their place from the Group D win.
2' GOAL! Croatia 0-1 Denmark: Incredible! Croatia won the shootout 3-2. Here is the penalty shootout.
Pione Sisto: The nimble-footed, wily left winger can possess a lot of questions to Croatia's defence. Both of their losses came as friendlies in the month of January.
They are in fine form, too, riding an 18-game unbeaten wave. Their movements were not as fluid or as coordinated as we had grown accustomed to and, especially once Denmark got Delaney to sit permanently alongside Schone (who had replaced Christensen) at the half, Denmark had the measure of Croatia in the middle of the park.
Sunday's match got off to an incredible start, and if you were five minutes late, you missed almost everything. Denmark have scored 7 and conceded 12. "We played well, have had great victories, but if we do not win against Denmark, we did not do anything".
The defender added that he is very proud to captain his national team in the World Cup, and hopes Denmark can go as far as possible in the tournament.
