Lionel Messi put their team in lead in the 34th minute of the match by converting a penalty. Argentina was two up when Alvarez scored the second goal of this match and his first goal of the match.

The second half was totally dominated by Argentina. Alvarez scored his second goal of the match in the 69th minute and put his team in an unassailable lead.

Croatia the runners-up in the last edition of FIFA World Cup 2018, can’t do much. They are unable to contain Argentina’s forwards.  Even though they did well to have higher ball possession, and a higher number of attempts at the goal, they failed to capitalize on their chances.

Croatia will now have to play the play-off match against the losing team of the second semi-final match France vs Morocco. The third and fourth positions in the FIFA World Cup 2022, will be decided based on this match result.

Argentina vs Croatia Match Quotes

Lionel Messi: “I feel a lot of things, it’s very exciting to see all this [celebrations in stadium]. Seeing the people, the family throughout the World Cup was incredible. We’re going for the last game, which was what we wanted.

“I don’t know if it’s my best World Cup or not. I’ve been enjoying this for a while. We were confident this group was going to pull it off. We know who we are, and we asked people to believe in us.

“We have been through tough situations, others very good. Today, we live something spectacular. I am enjoying with all these people and with all the Argentines who are in our country. I imagine it must be crazy. We knew we weren’t the top candidates [favourites for tournament], but we weren’t going to give anything to anyone. We were demonstrating it game-by-game. Argentina is, once again, in the final of the world. Enjoy!”
