Vrsaljko guides a lovely ball in behind the Russian defensive line for Perisic to head home, but the Croatian man can only push his header wide at the far-left post.
Strinic gives away a foolish free-kick with a clumsy challenge on Samedov, out on the right wing. Russia are within touching distance of the Croatian box here.
Cheryshev manages to brush his head across the set-piece delivery but it only goes to Subasic who stops it with ease.
What an outrageous strike from the Villarreal man! Dzyuba slips around the Croatian defence and squares a ball to his striker, who takes one step around Vida and launches a 25-yard shot that nestles itself behind a shocked Subasic in the top-left corner! The hosts have the lead just after the half-hour mark!
