Croatia Humiliates Messi’s Argwntina

Luka Modric-led Croatia cruised into the Second Round in Group today after crushing mouthy Lionel Messi- led Argentina 3-0.

The hard-tackling Croats who were in full control of the match with their top midfielders Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic holding sway, cancelled out the Argentines in the first half with both team losing chances after both goalies displayed bouts of naivety.

It was in the Second half that the match really gained momentum when Croatia’s Ante Rebic seized upon a sloppy clearance by Argentine Goalkeeper, Willie Caballero and slammed the ball into the net for the first goal.

The second was a classic Modric strike, after inter play in the middle of the park Modric rolled the ball to his left and then right, Nicolas Otamendi was slow to cover and a curler found the corner of the net 2-0 Croatia.

Messi then woke up from his reverie and began his mazy runs into the opponents box, all came to nothing as another foray led to Rakitic’s third.

It was humiliating defeat for Argentina who were pre-tournament favourites to reach the finals.
