This one will be very close. If croatia's midfield play to their ability this will be very hard for Argentina. Don't rate their midfield at all.

Yeah, Argentina's midfield without LoCelso against Modrić, Brozović and Kovačić

not gonna be pretty for them

I expect another unexciting game, I'll vote Croatia to go through, but it's really a 50:50 affair

Yea, they show that in this tournament. Bunch of scumbags that curse other players and great coaches like Van Gaal,doing dirty tricks and are protected by refeeres whole tournament. But yea, they are the savior after your beloved Englishmen and their FA, much more corrupt than anyone in Croatia, are out of this WC, proving again they are bunch of losers.. Way to go my fellow compatriot, way to go🤮
Better to be scumbag on the pitch than scumbag like Modrić who stoled money from his own club and then lied about that on the court. Others like Lovren as well.

Yet you adore English players,full of wife cheaters,accused rapists and more gruesome stuff. I have no problems,in fact I dont care that you boycott team that represents your country,but supporting England instead or Argentina and saying they are saviour of football lol...You think people that ran ther federations are saints?You are hypocrite.
Btw what could Modrić and Lovren do?They should be prosecuted for that and they are in fact... I dont support what they did,in fact I cant stand that asshole Lovren,but to hate whole team that represents your small country cause of that?? Would you testify against mafia? Yea,sure... Plus,english media are shit.

We all hate what happened at Dinamo, and cunt mamic, but Modric stole nothing.

This is going to be interesting match, I think Croatia has mentality to beat them and go to final again. That would be some of a story

I believe Argentina is much worse than Brazil. They've only played horrible matches and only just made it past the worst Netherlands side ever sent to a world cup. Croatia can definitely win this, and I hope they will.
Im not sure about this because Brazil had only easy games and against the first real opponent they failled. Netherlands are better than all the opponents that Brazil had.

Tbh, Brazil was very good against Croatia. They made one mistake with a poor positioning and Croatia punished immediately. Lack of more goals was of course an issue but if they just had played according to the game plan for full 120 mins, Croatia had no chance.

Argentina will suit Croatia alot better than Brazil. Its hard to contain Brazil strikeforce for 120min, they have pace and can take on any defender. Argentina has weak Alvarez and old DiMaria next to Messi and thats it.

Up til now noone has really managed to stop Messi , its obvious there will be a plan in place tonight . Croatia's mid is on another galaxy compared to Nederland.

When I thought about this game first thing that cam to my mind was statement from Mourinho 12 years ago, when we played barca in semifinal of UCL. And I think it can relate to this match also.

For Argentina and Messi winning world cup is and obssesion, and for Croatia it's just a dream.

Hope it's a good game without stupid decisions from Orsato for each side.

Gonna enjoy this one without rooting for either side. Also I have a feeling Lautaro is about to have a big game.

Yep,but you know what I mean. He was partner in crime.

I have no problems,in fact I dont care that you boycott team that represents your country,but supporting England instead or Argentina and saying they are saviour of football lol...You think people that ran ther federations are saints?You are hypocrite.

English players didn't helped in stealing millions of euros from a citizens' association that receives public funding (basically our money which we could have used for hospitals or something) in my city.

And that was not even a biggest problem,he was young and he was maybe forced or something cause it was beginning of his career.

Problem is he lied about that on the court,as an established played and big international star who is not depanding anymore on that kind of people. He had chance to say he was forced,dumb and young,whatever but no,he choose to defend criminals. After that it's impossible to me to root for teams where he and other cunts like Lovren are playing. We will se in the future when they are gone will I care or that period in my life is gone forever. 2016 and Euro was the year where hate for them was on his peak for most of the people. 2018 was already more like I don't care for this team anymore situation cause we got some justice on the court for all things we claimed for years. Now it's still similar,will never cheer for them and it's even still good to see them out but if they win it's still whatever I don't care.

I'm still a football fan and watching this kind of tournaments and naturally will have teams I would love to have success (cause for the most of the times can't watch games and be neutral). This teams are Argentina and England primarily,cause of many things from passion to music and football to years of underwhelming results and too much unfair criticsm.

I don't care if people are cheering for Croatian NT (like I cared in 2016 when nobody in their right mind could cheer for that),just don't told me I should do that or I'm a traitor or something for not doing that.
Plus,english media are shit.
All mainstream media are shit. People just have that opinion they are way more shit than others cause they have no clue what Serbian,Croatian or some other media are saying. Also I couldn't care less about mainstream media.

We need to put our best performance to win this. I predict we will be better team but they will score their chances, we wont. But it doesn't matter in the end, we had a great WC and already this is a massive achievement!
