Messi\’s Argentina eyes first World Cup victory over cumbersome Croatia.

It is a rowdy clash on Thursday 18:00GMT, at the Nizhni Novgorod stadium. When struggling Argentina host impudent\’s Croatia in a penultimate fixture of the group stages.
Looking forward to widen their opportunities of excelling to the next round.The Abicelesti are expecting to quest their first win over Croatia.
Argentina were left bewildered when cheeky Iceland frustrated the favorites in the first game by 1-1 draw.

Coach of Argentina Jorge Sampaoli after the Iceland game, admitted it was of a difficult task and their only chance for now is to overcome Croatia in the next game, hence Sampaoli is expected to make some changes in the starting line up.
And as stated, here are the most likely starters of the Croatia clash in a 4-4-2 diamond system.
Cabellero-GK, Mercado Rojo Otamendi Taglafico-DF,  MF-Biglia Mashcarano Pavon Dybala FW- Messi Aguero with kingpin Di Maria on the bench.
However, The Blazers of Croatia will be approaching this crunchy encounter with maximum confident after overcoming The Super Green Eagles of Nigeria by 2-0 in the first round.
A bit of confrontation settled at the Camp of Croatia, when Nicola Kalinic was detained back home for misconduct thus failing to warm up during Nigeria clash when he was ordered to do so by coach Zlatko Dalich. He was left outraged by the repulsive act of the Fiorentina star.
According to reports gathering for now insist the case is a forgo issue and will have no direct impact on the team as they chase this match.
A win will enlarge, perhaps enhance an
automatic qualification for Croatia to the round of 16.
Players such as Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic, Loveren and Mario Mandzukic are optimistically to make it in the starting IX of Croatia.
