Croatia beat Denmark 3-2 on penalties following a 1-1 draw in their Round of 16 tie in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday night, as goalkeepers starred.

Between them, Danijel Subašić and Kasper Schmeichel saved six penalties, with Croatian captain Luka Modrić missing his spot kick deep into extra time before a dramatic shoot-out.

It was 1-1 inside four minutes when Huddersfield defender Mathias Jørgensen opening the scoring for Denmark before Mario Mandžukić equalised just moments later.

But the match then dragged on towards a second penalty shoot-out of the day at Russia 2018 and here are the best of the jokes as Denmark exit the World Cup after losing to Croatia on penalties:

Fiancé: Don’t you want to get back early for #CRODEN ?

Me, a stupid twat: Hahah, chill babe it’s cool if we miss the first 5 minutes.

Why do players cover their mouths when discussing tactics of set pieces? Does Mandzukic think Mathias Jørgensen is going to translate from Croatian to Danish and relay that to the whole team in time to thwart their corner routine? He’s not Jason Bourne #CRODEN #WorldCup

Can't ITV put Gary Neville in the commentary box for the England games. They can say to Glenn Hoddle it's not personal. Just call it karma from another lifetime #CRODEN

Extra time. Like when you've just about managed to eat a friends huge rotten dry dinner and the they say, "You'll never guess what I did for desert!"#CRODEN
