FIFA World Cup Live Updates: Rest!
It remains goalless between the two sides at half-time in the first quarter-final in Al Rayyan. Brazil has been the more attacking side, but Croatia has defended impressively. While the latter have yet to register a shot on target, Perisic came close in the first few minutes and the defenders left the Brazilians quite ragged on some occasions. Big 45 minutes coming up! CRO 0-0 BRA

FIFA World Cup Live Updates: Free kick in the right place…
… but goalkeeper remains wary. Neymar gets the free-kick from 25 yards out and there’s a deflection off the wall – but it’s not too big for the goalkeeper to make a last-minute adjustment. In fact, it only slows down the pace of the ball and the keeper ends up having a simple catch. CRO 0-0 Bra, 42′

FIFA World Cup live score: almost halftime
Brozovic again! He runs dangerously to the left, but is left alone. He eventually concedes a goal kick. Croatia is slowly running out of gas here. 7 minutes to go before the halftime signal. CRO 0-0 Bra, 39′
Dec 09, 2022 9:04 PM IST
FIFA World Cup Live Score: A little rough out there!
Brozovic fouls Neymar and goes into the book. Brazil act quickly and take the free kick as Croatia argues with the referee, but it only leads to a fight between Lovren and Richarlison. A little ragged from Brazil there. CRO 0-0 Bra 32′

FIFA World Cup Live Updates: Foul and Free Kick
Nice pressure from the Brazilian midfielders and eventually the team deserved a free kick. Quite far from the target, however, and the move ultimately in vain. CRO 0-0 Bra 28′

FIFA World Cup live score: first yellow card
Danilo enters the book for a dangerous challenge on Juranovic. The defender has to be careful here. Free kick for Croatia and Modric is behind the ball. The corner is quite tight and Modric rightly sends the ball to the middle, but Brazil’s defense is on its feet and the team eventually earns a free kick. CRO 0-0 Bra 25′

Quarter-finals FIFA World Cup: Brazil grows in the game
This time Casemiro tries to shoot. Bad attempt, as the ball goes wide of the right post. Neymar was not happy as he had an opening in the middle with only two Croatian defenders up front. CRO 0-0 Bra 22′
December 09, 2022 8:52 PM IST
FIFA World Cup Live Score: Brilliant one-two there!
A little genius from Vinicius Jr. and Neymar there. Neymar launches the attack from the middle with Vinicius making a quick sprint down the left. The Brazilian star releases the ball and Vinicius cuts back brilliantly, passing to Neymar who then returns the ball with an opening for the Brazilian youngster.
But equally good defense of Croatia, because the attack is finally negotiated safely. CRO 0-0 BRA 20′
December 09, 2022 8:47 PM IST
FIFA World Cup live score: 15 minutes later
Croatia comfortably on top. Brazil may have had the first shot of the match, but it has been Croatia ever since. Perisic would have almost put the team ahead early in the game had the pass not gone behind the player. CRO 0-0 Bra 16′

Perisic crosses, but there is no one in the center to receive it. However, Croatia started the game strongly, especially on the flanks. So far some good collisions from the Croatian attackers. CRO 0-0 Bra, 10′

And that comes from Vinicius Jr. However, there is not much power in the shot, because he tries it from 25 meters. Easy choice for Croatian goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic

FIFA World Cup Live: Big test for Casemiro
Against the famous midfield trio of Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic and Marcelo Brozovic, this will be a big test for Brazilian Casemiro. The Brazilian side usually goes with an all-out attack, deploying their forwards high and wide, often leaving Casemiro as the lone player in midfield.
Will that change tonight?
