FT: Croatia 3-0 Argentina

Pathetic showing from Argentina this evening.

They have not performed to the level they were expected to and never got Lionel Messi into the game.

They are now on the brink of elimination…

CROATIA 2-0!

WHAT A GOAL!

Modric with a delightful effort extends Croatia’s lead!

That’s surely it for Messi and Argentina now…

A defeated man

Lionel Messi has certainly been let down by his teammates today.

They have just not got him into the game despite him being the man that makes them tick.

CROATIA 1-0!!

Willy Caballero will not want to see that one again!

He’s sliced his kick straight to Rebic who wraps his foot around the shot beautifully and plants it over and beyond the Argentine goalkeeper.

Argentina need to do something and fast!

Incredible Messi stat

Lionel Messi has only touched the ball TWENTY times in the first half. Only Sergio Aguero has touched the ball let for Argentina with 7.

With that, we’re underway for the second half!

Frustrated Messi

Argentina have just not been able to find their main man and he is well and truly being let down by the players around him.

Tackles flying in now...

Some hefty challenges flying in, a couple that could have even been seen as red cards.

However, we go into the break with the game at 0-0.

Need better from both teams going forward.

An even more baffling chance missed by Croatia!

The finishing on show is becoming a bit of a joke now.

Mario Mandzukic also finds him in a position where it is harder to miss than score but puts his header wide.

How is this game still 0-0?!

How did he miss?!

Enzo Perez just missed a HUGE chance to put Argentina level!

Some would say it was harder to miss… a lot harder!

Diego Maradona is loving this one!

The Argentine is certainly getting into this game!

Tempers flare

It’s becoming a feisty affair now as Rakitic and Perez both go into a tackle.

Setting up to be a good match, this.

One legend salutes another

Croatia chance!

The game is underway and Croatia force the first save from Willy Caballero!

Questions over Argentina XI

Some are particularly confused by the inclusion of Enzo Perez…

Argentina vs Croatia live streaming: Match preview

Group C restarts with the alluring Argentinians coming up against Croatia at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium.

Argentina come into the game with puffed up red faces and veins still popping from the frustrating draw with Iceland. Argentina were desperate to acquire the winning goal and launched a full frontal assault against the compact and robust Iceland.

Messi & Dybala

Inclusive of this assault was Lionel Messi who went behind enemy lines trying to put the ball into the back of the net. However even the world’s best was thwarted with a missed penalty, several misplaced shots and dribbles obstructed.

Argentina looked like a team far too dependent on Messi, the midfield looked devoid of any control and creativity. Argentina have a lot of edges to iron out. The team needs to take more initiative and the manager needs to incorporate Dybala!

It’s baffled the footballing world. No one can understand the exclusion of Dybala. In a game that is crying out for initiative, technical ability and edge there is no one more aligned to bring on. It can be argued that he hasn’t quite replicated his club form to the international stage. However this is the World Cup and players are capable of bringing a different performance to the arena when the stakes are at their maximum. if Argentina are to progress further through the competition it is imperative that they include their superstar Dybala.

Also Messi will be turning 31 in a few days and this could be his final World Cup. Having last in the final last time round and having seen arch rival Ronaldo bag 4 goals all ready on top of claiming the Euro’s you can be sure that the little magician will be looking to save his best magic trick for last as he aims to acquire the trophy that continues to allude him.

Croatia

Croatia will be happy with their composed victory over Nigeria that showcased 2 goals and a clean sheet for The Vatreni. They will come into the game the more relaxed outfit.

However concerns on muzzling Messi is on Croatian coach Zlatko Dalic’s mind where has unashamedly turned to midfielder Ivan Rakitic – a team mate of Messi’s at Barcelona – for ideas and tactics to stop him.

“I will use all the information I can,” he said, declaring Rakitic his temporary “assistant” before the game.

“There is no perfect way to stop Lionel Messi … he is the greatest player in the world. But while one excellent player can make a great result, a great team does the job much better … We will go into the game a little bit more relaxed than them.”
