I was surprised that Argentina melted down in the second half, but not that they lost. They did NOT impress in their first game, and Messi didn’t exactly dominate in the previous World Cup either. Croatia is a tough, well-balanced team and looked better throughout most of the first half.
Hell of a finish by Rebic on the keeper’s mistake, though. That was nowhere nearly as easy as he made it look. Especially in light of how an Argentine missed an open net with a straightforward sidefoot in the first half.
