World Cup Day 7 Review

Argentina in trouble!

Group C

Denmark 1 vs. 1 Australia

Eriksen scored in the 7th minute to give Denmark the lead but a hand ball by Poulsen allowed Jedinak to convert a penalty in the 38th minute and equalise for the Socceroos. The game was a cagey affair, Denmark remain second with four points while Australia are third with one point. 

France 1 vs. 0 Peru

Mbappé scored in the 34th minute in what was a lacklustre performance by the french. Peru are knocked out of the World Cup but restricted the French to one goal. France need to improve ahead of the knockout stages if they want to progress further in the competition. 

Group D

Argentina 0 vs. 3 Croatia

After a very physical first half Rebić, Modrić, and Rakitić added second half goals to create a very narrow chance of Argentina’s qualification to the knockout stages. Argentina have a team full of stars but weird team selection by Sampaoli and a refusal to gel as a team could see them get knocked out of the group stage. Croatia are through to the knockout rounds and could be dark horses for the World Cup, Argentina seem to look like they are England’s golden age in disguise, all stars but no chemistry.
