Chelsea centre-back Andreas Christensen was involved in 1-1 draw between Croatia and Denmark in Novgorod last night.
Ivan Rakitic’s penalty and Danijel Subasic‘s saves in the penalty shootout sent the Croatians into the World Cup quarter-finals before Kasper Schmeichel denied Luka Modric a late opener from the spot with 5′ left to go in the extra time.
Christensen produced an unlucky assist to Mario Mandzukic when Henrik Dalsgaard’s attempted clearance hit the head of the Chelsea defender. The ball smacked him square in the face and the Juventus striker scored a strange leveler.
