Japan have been eliminated from all four of their round of 16 appearances at the World Cup (D2 L2), while they’ve lost both of their penalty shootouts in the competition (also vs Paraguay in 2010).
Match Highlights
Croatia have avoided defeat in five of their last six World Cup matches in which they’d conceded the first goal (W2 D3 L1), with three of these games going to a penalty shootout (also vs Denmark and Russia in 2018).

Croatia to play Brazil or South Korea
Croatia's shootout success means they will play either Brazil or South Korea in the last eight of the World Cup on Friday.

Those two teams face off in the sixth last-16 clash later tonight.

Ivan Periőić has scored more goals at World Cups and European Championships combined than any other Croatia player (10). In fact, Periőić became the first Croatia player to score in five different major tournaments (World Cups/Euros).
