BREAKING NEWS: Croatia Crush Argentina In Stunning 3-0 Victory

In supreme fashion, Croatia ran through Argentina on Friday, 3-0, to earn a spot in the World Cup’s knockout round for just the second time as an independent nation.
The Blazers world-class midfield completed 289 passes, dominated defensively and, after a sloppy and scoreless first half, pierced and demoralized Argentina — four years ago a World Cup finalist — in the second.

See how the goals were scored in real time below:

Goal Croatia!

In added time, the Blazers schooled Argentina down the field after a poor corner kick. Ivan Rakitic took a shot from 10 yards out that was saved by Caballero, but Croatia was all over the rebound. Rakitic took a pass back a the top of the six-yard box and calmly deposited the ball in the net.

Goal Croatia!

A wonder strike from Luka Modric in the 80th minute will likely seal Croatia’s victory over Argentina and a spot in the knockout round. After a turnover at midfield, the Blazers beat the Argentine defense back downfield and swung the ball to Modric 20-some yards from the goal. He made a couple moves, then curled a shot around Willy Caballero that sent his teammates in the technical area wild.

Gonzalo Higuain drove to the end line with the ball in the 64th minute and flipped a pass to the 6-yard box where Maximiliano Meza was cutting. His shot was saved by Subašić, the Croat keeper, and Messi got to the rebound. Subašić  made another save, knocking the ball out of bounds for a corner that went harmlessly.

Goal Croatia!

Oh, what a mistake! Caballero, Argentina’s keeper, duffed a clearing attempt Rebic was right there waiting and sent a volley through his silhouette. The Blazers take the lead in the 54th minute.
