World Cup Day 12 Review

Argentina make it to the next round.

Group C

Australia 0 vs. 2 Peru

Carrillo and Guerrero scored in each home in what was a dominant performance by the Peruvians. Australia seemed that like they were resigned to go home and did not show up for the game. Peru played well and finally managed to win, both teams now go home one with a sour taste in their mouth while the other goes home with a win to remember. 

Denmark 0 vs. 0 France

The first nil nil draw of this World Cup and as the scoreline suggest their was nothing to talk about. If you are a Chelsea fan then Christensen did play in a defensive midfield role adding another position he can play at for the club.

Group D

Nigeria 1 vs. 2 Argentina

Football is cruel and in several cases the teams that are lucky go through as to the teams that deserved to win. Argentina played poorly in their first two games but thanks to Nigeria they remained in contention for qualification. Argentina used their chance and now go through to the next round while Nigeria go home. Messi scored in the 14th minute to give Argentina the lead, but Moses converted a penalty in the 51st minute to send Nigerian fans into raptures. It seemed that Nigeria would be going through but Rojo scored in the 86th minute to send Argentina into the next round. 

Iceland 1 vs. 2 Croatia

Croatia opened the score in the second half after Badelj gave his team the lead, Sigurdsson converted a penalty to level the score. Iceland had been playing well and a draw seemed like a fair enough result for both teams but Perisić finished in the 90th minute to give Croatia their third win of the group stage and send Iceland home with only a point to their name.
