Neymar will face his longtime rival Luka Modric from Real Madrid in the first quarterfinal game between Brazil and Croatia.
Brazil’s first-half barrage of goals destroyed South Korea 4-1, allaying any concerns about their lackluster group-stage results. Meanwhile, Croatia defeated Japan on penalties, continuing their inconsistent World Cup campaign that has seen three draws and only one triumph.
Nevertheless, Croatia has advanced to the quarterfinals of a FIFA tournament for the second time in a row, following up their presence in the 2018 FIFA World Cup final with a position in the quarterfinals in 2022. Given their plethora of experience, Croatia will be a difficult opponent.
