Croatia Coach To Rest Players Against
Iceland As Nigeria Battle Argentina For
Qualification

Manager Zlatko Dalic wants to keep his squad
fresh, after they secured their progression to
the knockout stages with a 3-0 victory over
Argentina, as reported by beIN Sports.
A weakened Croatia side would give Iceland
the perfect opportunity to claim victory and
all-but end any hopes the South Americans
have of progressing.
Argentina are on the brink of elimination
following two disappointing performances.
Their defeat by Croatia means that their fate
is out of their hands, with just one point – a
1-1 draw against Iceland – from their first two
games.
The Nordic nation would need a win against
their European counterparts and better
Argentina’s result to remain above, as they
are currently ahead on goal difference.
When asked of his plans to rest some of his
stars, Dalic’s answer was short and sweet:
“Yes, I will.”
Argentina were one of the pre-tournament
favourites, having reached the final in Brazil
four years ago.
But their passion and determination has been
questioned, unlike Croatia’s.
Dalic added: “I said this would be the easiest
match, not because Argentina are poor but
because of our motivation. My players and
everyone at home enjoyed it.”
Argentina will need to beat Nigeria next
Tuesday, and hope Iceland lose to ensure
they reach the Round of 16.
