Sampaoli's team appeared in the match with Iceland several times disassembled approached a meeting with Croats in the rank of unconditional leader. Leader by name, regalia, ambitions and the presence of Messi in the composition. The Croatians forgave the Argentines in the middle of the first half, when Perisic was supposed to score, the half-moment was Mandzhukich. Argentina seemed not to notice the alarming bells, and goalkeeper "albiseleste" Willie Caballero continued to be nervous, realizing the inevitability of approaching the goal. At the 53rd minute attacking German "Eintracht" Ante Rebić opened the account, forcing Caballero to capitulate. It can not be said that after a missed goal, the Argentina team stopped playing, just once again the curse of the national teams' t-shirts came into effect. Venerable players besieged the gates of Subasic, but to no avail. Croatia has translated the spirit and following the instructions of its coach, Zlatko Dalich, began to meet Argentines so highly that the Croatian defenders were nervous. They were actually in a state of siege, having no time to make a decision, the first forward was immediately covered by the attacking players of the Croatian national team. Total pressure in half the field of the Argentines gave their results soon enough. Messi became nervous, and with him the whole team. Time after time in situations where it was necessary to share the ball with a partner, the Argentinians beat without preparation, often covered, at least one defender of the Croats. The game in Argentina was upset. Sampaoli threw in the fight Higuain, Pavon and Dibalu-heavy artillery attacking the group, but once again to no avail. On the 80th minute of the meeting, the counterattack of the Argentines was met by the Croatian midfielders and Luka Modric, who received the ball, irresistibly struck the far corner. The third ball Caballero missed at the very end of the meeting, the Croats mocking tore the Argentines in a small gap in the penalty area and earned a goal Rakitić signed under the defeat of the national team of his partner in Barcelona, Lionel Messi. The Croatian team confidently steps into the playoffs, almost without thinking about the upcoming meeting with the Icelanders in the third round, and Sampaoli's team hopes for a draw in today's match between the teams of Iceland and Nigeria in order to win the Nigerians in the last round and appeal to the spirit of the Icelandic team winners . Too many circumstances no longer depend on Argentines. However, the European champion -Portugal also hardly left the group in 2016, so it's too early to declare a 100% collapse of the hopes of "albiselest".
