A SOUTH AMERICAN DOMINATION
We could feel the Croatians in physical difficulty.

The latter have nevertheless multiplied the sequences of ball conservation and will have tried some shots, in vain. They ended up conceding a goal from Messi on a penalty kick in the 34th minute, after the Croatian keeper fouled Alvarez. Hardly recovered, they will have cracked again 5 minutes later, after another breakthrough of Alvarez. The Argentinian took advantage of a double counter-attack in the opponent’s box to score the second goal of the match.
In the second half, the Croatians started with good intentions but were quickly overtaken by an Argentine domination and some physical difficulties. The penalty fell at the 69th minute of the game. After a remarkable sequence, Messi once again served Alvarez, who only had to finish to give the Albiceleste the win. With the game wrapped up, Scaloni was able to offer his first minutes of play in this World Cup to Paulo Dybala, who was also part of the party.
