World Cup 2018 is not about superstars it's about teamwork: Full-time Argentina 0-3 Croatia OH MY! Nightmarish shielding! Rebic pursues a backpass for Caballero who endeavours to chip a disregard the Croatian winger to his defender however his endeavoured pass is agreeable and succumbs to Rebic who gymnastically volleys it home the first time. Caballero has been poor all through the diversion and committed mistakes in the first game too.
ModricCroatia survive!!! Argentina at long last deliver a reaction. Perez plays Higuain through who comes to the byline and reduces to Meza whose shot is parried by the guardian, and just before Messi jumped on it, Rakitic showed it out. Extraordinary defending.
Paulo Dybala goes ahead. Dybala, Messi and Higuain playing together in Argentina's hour of need! Would they be able to turn this around? The stars neglected to appear in critical moments.
Emotions flaring! Messi is fouled as he endeavours to wriggle far from his marker. The Barcelona forward demonstrates his disappointment with an irate signal and nearly hits out at him. Could have a yellow card there.
MY WORD! Where did that originate from? Croatia wanders forward on a counter and the peril appears to have gone with Modric on the ball with defenders before him. The Real Madrid man does splendidly work some space from 25 yards out and releases a stupendous drive which settled in the base corner.
What a fitting goal to win a game. Argentina on edge!
Croatia manages the set piece, and cavort up the opposite end. Rakitic bursts down the centre. His shot is parried splendidly by Caballero; however, the ball breaks to Kovacic on the left. Kovacic essentially rolls the ball back to Rakitic, who hammers the ball into the base left. This is presently an embarrassment for the two-time champs and 2014 finalists.
It's three! What's more, it's a gathering in Croatia! Argentina has been tore separated. Another bit of counter. Another bit of appalling safeguarding. A shot on a table is parried by Caballero, just out similarly as Kovacic who has all the time on the planet with the Argentine defender stopping sitting tight for the offside banner. Kovacic smoothly squares it for Rakitic who passes the ball into the back of the net. Humiliating for the South American goliaths this.
