Croatia will be taking on Iceland in a crucial matchup of Group D of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia.
The Luka Modric led team has already qualified for the next stage and will be looking to make it three out of three in the group stage for another boost of confidence.
The European team has had a phenomenal outing till date as they defeated Nigeria and blew past Argentina to secure a Round of 16 spot.
Their midfield is their biggest strength with the likes of captain Modric, Ivan Rakitic, Marcelo Brozovic, Mateo Kovacic and many more. The players are responding to what their coach is asking of them and the results show that the team is a real force to be reckoned with.
Iceland who started off the tournament on a strong foot after a draw with giants Argentina slumped against Nigeria. The team didn’t look like they turned up and produced a lacklustre display. They allowed the African side too much space and time on the ball and were heavily punished.
However, to count the Vikings out so early would be far cry, as the team has always known to bounce back and show their grit.
They need to win this game if they have any hopes of getting the second qualifying spot ahead of Argentina and Nigeria. Expect them to give it their all in yet another attempt by the small nation. They have shown time and again they are never intimidated.
