Argentina were uncertain favourites to win Group D and La Albiceleste flattered to deceive in their World Cup 2018 opener against Iceland which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Sergio Aguero gave his country the lead although Iceland were quickly level, with the European side holding firm even if Lionel Messi had a penalty saved.

It means that Argentina’s future in Russia is uncertain, with Croatia posing a potentially sterner test than their first group opponents.

Zlatko Dalic’s side overcame Nigeria with the minimum of fuss in their opener, with the Blazers knowing that a victory in this game would make practically certain of their spot in the last sixteen.

Indeed, a Group D top spot placing is likely to put a team in the easier half of the last sixteen draw, with Croatia hoping to get Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic on the ball in midfield.

It was noticeable against Iceland that Messi dropped deeper and deeper to receive the ball, with Sergio Aguero not getting many chances after scoring a peach of an opener.

The Argentina defence looked wobbly against an Icelandic team happy to sit deep and attack on the counter, with Mario Mandzukic likely to cause problems with his physicality and we’re likely to see a close game of football.

With Croatia having a win on the board and Iceland in their final game, a draw would suit them fine here, with the pressure all on the South Americans.
