World Cup 2018: Croatia Advances and Argentina in Danger of Elimination

Share

Croatia turned into the fourth group to make it to the World Cup round of 16 and has left Argentina on the stunning verge of disposal in the wake of pulverizing the South Americans 3-0 on Thursday. A powerless Argentina did nothing in attack throughout the entire game, and Croatia scored on a stunning goalkeeper blunder before Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric put it away late.

Ahead of schedule in the second half, Argentina goalkeeper Willy Caballero gave the ball perfectly to Ante Rebic, who committed no error. At that point Modric took over, putting the match away.

 

 

Rakitic completed on the counter to make it 3-0 to move to six points in the tournament. What’s more, now Argentina needs a draw or Nigeria win on Friday to feel like it has any shot of proceeding onward.

With respect to Messi, he wasn’t depended on as much as in the main match, yet he just couldn’t go ahead. Jorge Sampaoli rolled out improvements much past the point of no return, and they couldn’t recuperate.

 

 

However, Croatia merits laud. They weren’t awesome in the opener against Nigeria yet safeguarded well in this one and exploited Argentina’s mix-ups, legitimately securing a spot in the following round.

Croatia will confront Iceland in their last group stage match with nothing hanging in the balance. Argentina faces Nigeria, yet their destiny could be out of their hands relying upon how Iceland charges tomorrow or in their last match. The two matches will take place on Tuesday, June the 26th.
