2018 FIFA World Cup Russia: Argentina vs Croatia Live Stream, Schedule & Live Telecast: All Hopes on Messi As Argentina Faces Croatia in Must-Win Groud D Match

Lionel Messi fans will be hoping for a magic from the superstar as Argentina face Croatia in their Group D encounter. Croatia won their 1st match and currently the table topper in their group. Argentina, on the other hand, played a draw against Iceland. The talking point of the match is Messi messing up the penalty. Now his team faces an uphill task against the Croatians who are playing some aggressive football. Adraw or loss against Croatia will jeopardise their chances for making it to the round of 16.

Messi’s rival Ronaldo was in a similar situation earlier. However, he was able to take his team through against Morocco, he scored the only goal of the match against Morocco. Now he has the maximum number of goals in the tournament so far 4. Messi, on the other hand, will be looking for redemption after an abysmal performance in the opening tie.

Argentina Vs Croatia Pre Match Quotes

“We do not need to be too afraid of Argentina,” Kovacic told reporters ahead of the match. “We are singularly better than them, except Messi, and so we should behave, look at ourselves, not others.”- As quoted to goal.com

Sampaoli said: “When Argentina don’t win, we attribute responsibility to Leo. I think that’s too easy a way for Argentinians to think.”- As quoted to Mirror

“When he [Messi] has two or three opponents trying to block him, somewhere on the pitch a teammate is free, as happened against Iceland. We need to take advantage of that.”
