At the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi, Russia's Cinderella run at the championship tumbled by a 4-3 penalty shootout defeat to their European counterparts in the quarterfinals.
The match had ended 2-2 after extra-time after Mario Fernandes' late equalizer for Sbornaya.
With no further goals in the second half, the match was forced into extra-time, where Domagoj Vida put the visitors in front after 10 minutes.
At that point, Zlatko Dalic's side looked headed for the last four, before Fernandes headed home the leveller.
In the shootout, Mateo Kovacic missed his kick for Croatia, but two misses by Russia's Fedor Smolov and Fernandes handed The Blazers passage to the semis where England await.
Here are some Ghanaian reactions on the game from social media.
