The result leaves France on six points and Denmark and Australia on four and one respectively after their 1-1 draw earlier in the day.Croatia have beaten Argentina with 3-0 and entered the knockout phase of the tournament.
Croatia inflicted a brutal 3-0 World Cup defeat on Argentina which will damage the two-time champions’ psyche, and may prove fatal to their participation at this tournament.The result means that an Iceland win over Nigeria on Friday and a convenient draw between Croatia and Iceland in their final game would see Argentina eliminated.
This was Croatia’s first victory in five attempts against South American nations at the World Cup, having lost each of their previous four.This is only the second time Croatia have won both of their opening two games at a World Cup, after the 1998 tournament that saw them reach the semi-finals.
