World Cup 2018 Argentina vs Nigeria When And Where To Watch Live Coverage On TV Live Streaming Online

Croatia enters the round of 16 with tons of confidence as the victor of Group D over pre-tourney favorites Argentina.

Perisic, with Luka Modric the only first-choice player not rested, struck in the last minute to confirm their last-16 clash with Denmark after Milan Badelj's second-half goal had been cancelled out by Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty.

But Iceland got one back on a penalty kick in the 76th minute, as Croatia conceded for the first time in Russian Federation 2018.

Iceland still has a chance of reaching the Round of 16 as the runner up in Group D. They are two points behind second-place Nigeria, so they must beat Croatia to have any shot of progressing.

Also moving on were Argentina, who defeated Nigeria 2-1 in the other game.

World Cup debutants Iceland proved they can compete against the top teams and will depart Russian Federation with their heads held high even if they failed to win a single game, Hallgrimsson said after the match.

North Korea shouldn't have nukes - and neither should we
It was made by the Choson Sinbo, a pro-Pyongyang mouthpiece in Japan that normally faithfully reproduces the party line. Both Lamborn and Gardner, though, also expressed the need to keep the pressure on North Korea moving forward.

"We gave the squad a chance to play in the World Cup but from this moment on the group stage is over, we have done our job", he said.

As expected, Croatia controlled midfield and Iceland were perfectly happy with the scenario, looking to hit their opponents on the break.

They started to press higher, putting Croatia on the back foot.

Alfred Finnbogason missed wide in the 40th minute after his own takeaway, Emil Hallfredsson skied it over the crossbar from 33 yards four minutes later and seconds from the half-time whistle, Aron Gunnarsson's attempt from 20 yards was batted away by goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic.

On 73 minutes Bjarnason fluffed a close-range opportunity but Iceland's lifeline arrived a minute later when Dejan Lovren handled a cross by Sigurdsson in the penalty area.

The Iceland defender Sverrir Ingason almost scored twice just moments later, heading just over and then again off the crossbar.
