Argentina will lock horns with Croatia for a spot in the World Cup Final tonight at 7:00 pm GMT at Lusail Stadium. Here’s Argentina vs Croatia Starting XI.
Luka Modric and co. need one more win to reach their second consecutive World Cup Final. Bruno Petkovic scored a 117th-minute equalizer against Brazil, and Croatia went on to take the match on penalties.
Elsewhere, Lionel Messi needs two more victories to touch his dream trophy. Argentina conceded a last second goal against the Netherlands to play extra time in the quarter-finals. However, La Albicelestes did a 2014 semi-final repeat to the Oranje and sealed the game on penalties.
The winner of this game will play France or Morocco in the World Cup Final.
