Croatia beat Russia on penalties to reach semis

Croatia Are Through To The Semi-Finals After A Penalty Shootout

Appearing alongside former Croatia worldwide Ognjen Vukojevic - with whom he played at Dynamo Kiev - Vida said: "Glory to Ukraine".

In the video, posted on Facebook by Ukrainian journalist Andrey Shakhov, Vida said: "Glory to Ukraine".

Croatia faces England on Wednesday in the country's first World Cup semifinal game since 1998.

"Glory to Ukraine" is widely used by anti-Russian Ukrainian nationalists following the 2014 Maidan coup. Later on Saturday night, anti-Croatian chants were heard in the centre of Moscow.

"FIFA is processing the different reports of the said match as well as potential evidence concerning the matter", the statement read. "Please understand, until we have evaluated all information available, we can not comment further", said a statement from the organizers of the World Cup, AFP reports.

Russian Federation defender Mario Fernandes scored the equalizing goal in extra time, but then sent his penalty wide of the net in the shootout. "It was just a joke".




Vida later told Russian media that he meant no offence.

Vida played for Dinamo Kiev from 2013 to 2018 before moving to Besiktas in January.

The two both spent parts of their careers playing for Ukraine's Dynamo Kyiv.

"The whole of our nation is euphoric, they are upbeat, there are parties going on when Croatia play, they are out in the squares, out in the cafes.it's great that our president is going to be there tomorrow", Dalic said.

Earlier this week, Ukrainian goalkeeper Mikhail Gotra had his contract with FC Karpaty terminated for cheering on Russian Federation on his Instagram page following their round-of-16 win over Spain. The pair escaped a ban, but were fined £7,600 for their actions.

Federation Internationale de Football Association can fine or suspend players for political gestures at the World Cup. During an earlier match between Switzerland and Serbia, several ethnic Albanian players on the Swiss team flashed a provocative hand signal created to inflame tensions between Serbs and Albanians.
