Croatia may be favored on paper in this match but something is telling us that Russia's stunning victory over Spain will propel them to even greater heights. But here they are after a huge upset win over Spain in a shootout to take on a squad in Croatia that faced their sternest test thus far when they defeated Denmark in the opening round of the knockout stage. There are no obvious weaknesses and, although they're in the much tougher half of the draw, they're my pick for lifting the trophy for a sixth time in Moscow on July 15.
