Just as I tipped both Argentina and Croatia managed to secure victories in their final Group D matches.
Argentina needed a late Rojo wonder strike to save their blushes and ensure qualification for the knockout stage of the World Cup. Rojo’s goal helped the Albiceleste to a 2-1 victory over Nigeria following Lionel Messi’s first half goal.
Croatia consolidated their place at the top of Group D following a 2-1 victory over Iceland with goals from Badelj and Perisic. This victory ensured that Croatia finished top with maximum points.
Argentina will now face France in the last 16 whilst Croatia will face-off against Denmark.
