World Cup 2018: Croatia qualify for round of 16 after 3-0 win against Argentina

Argentina are on the verge of exiting the 2018 World Cup at the group stage, after they were thrashed 3-0 by Croatia on Thursday evening.

Jorge Sampaoli’s team came into the game needing to win, after a disappointing 1-1 draw with Iceland in their opening Group D clash.

However, they failed to score in the opening 45 minutes, which ended 0-0.

But it was the Croats who dominated after the break, with disciplined defending and swift counter-attacking.

Willy Caballero gifted Ante Rebic with the opener, before Luka Modric lashed in the second from just outside the box.

Ivan Rakitic sealed the win with a tap in.

Croatia now have six points from two matches, while Argentina are still on one point.
