It’s been an incredible 2018 World Cup with upsets, amazing moments and plenty of matches going to penalty kicks to decide it all.
Saturday proved to be no different as Croatia and Russia faced off in the final quarterfinal matchup to determine who would go on to face England in the semifinal.
The match saw plenty of drama, including a goal to tie it in the 114′ minute that sent the contest to penalty kicks.
It was all made even greater with social media as Twitter reacted to all of the craziness of a game that ultimately saw Croatia defeat the host nation in penalty kicks.
