The last Argentina match between Argentina and Croatia match

Argentina hopes to avoid repeating the results they had the last time they played Croatia.

At the 2017 World Cup in Russia, they were crushed by 3-0 in the group stage by Croatia that ultimately ended up finishing second in Group D.

This resulted in Argentina defeating eventual winners France during the round of 16 and Croatia received a more relaxed knockout phase as they advanced to the final.

Argentina played with a little advantage last time they played Croatia but struggled with the ball, which they cannot afford to do in 2022.
