Soccer-Hosts Russia level at 1-1 with Croatia at halftime

SOCHI, Russia, July 7 (Reuters) - Andrej Kramaric’s header for Croatia cancelled out a stunning strike from Russia’s Denis Cheryshev to leave the teams level at 1-1 at halftime in the last World Cup quarter-final at Sochi’s Fisht Stadium on Saturday.

Cheryshev’s swerving left-footer from the edge of the box gave hosts Russia the lead in the 31st minute but an unmarked Kramaric headed in a cross from Mario Mandzukic eight minutes later to restore parity.

The winners will play England in the semi-finals at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Wednesday. (Reporting by Sudipto Ganguly; editing by Ken Ferris)
