Argentina must recognize Croatia’s superiority in the second Group D match. La Albiceleste were beaten 0-3 by Croatia in a match at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium on Friday (22/6/2018).
That means the new Argentina collect one point from two games. In the first game, Lionel Messi et al. offset by Iceland.
Argentina’s opportunity to qualify for the round of 16 was not completely closed. But their fate is also determined by the results of other matches.
Then, how Argentina can qualify for the round of 16 large?
Currently in Group D, Croatia and Argentina have played two matches. While Nigeria and Iceland will face each other on Friday (22/06/2018)
If Iceland won, then Argentina must beat Nigeria in the last game. Not only that, Argentina also had to hope Iceland lost to Croatia in the last game and lost on goal difference from them.
If Nigeria and Iceland draw, Argentina need a victory over Nigeria plus a draw or a defeat of Iceland in the game against Croatia.
If Nigeria win over Iceland, then Argentina must win in the last game. Argentina should also have a better goal difference than Iceland if they win over Croatia in the final game.
Can Argentina get away from the pinhole?
