Croatia have been creating chances to score but have only failed. Tactical change is required.
First a Denmark long throw caused chaos in the Croatia box and Mathias Jørgensen tucked home after less than a minute!
However, they will come up against a Denmarkteam who have also not lost a match so far at the tournament. Mandzukic fires the ball into the Danish goal. Both of their losses came as friendlies in the month of January. At half-time, the score was one goal each.
The Vatreni have been one of the sensations of the tournament to date.
Croatia topped their group, winning all three of their group games. "But for this new game, we must forget all that went before", said captain Luka Modric, a 12-year-old when Croatia reached the semi-final in France in 1998. A Denmark clearance attempt from its own area bounced off a defender, right into the path of Mario Mandzukic.
Subs: Livakovic, Corluka, Kovacic, Kramaric, Jedvaj, Bradaric, Caleta-Car, Badelj, Pjaca, Pivaric, Lovre Kalinic. That was quick. Denmark stuns Croatia with an early strike on a set play.
So it'll be interesting to see how Croatia fare as heavy favourites against a team that will have little interest in attacking.
Modric scored a peach of a goal from distance against Argentina and along with FC Barcelona's Rakitic, has been pulling the strings brilliantly for his national team.
Eight Croatia players are one booking away from a one-match ban, but this will not impact selection.
Croatia looks to continue their impressive 2018 World Cup run against Denmark in both team's first elimination soccer game. "But I think we can settle it within 90 minutes". "Kasper is a great goalkeeper and I'm not surprised by his great level", Kjaer said.
Marcelo Brozovic can provide stability at the base of midfield, Ivan Perisic is unsafe on the flank and Hoffenheim's Andrej Kramaric is an effective playmaker.
It was the second-earliest goal scored by a Belgium player at a World Cup after Leopold Anoul scored in the fifth minute in 1954. Belgium go into the second half with a narrow 2-1 lead, despite dominating for large spells of the first 45 minutes.
Southampton's midfielder Tusan Tadic , has 51 caps and 13 goals for Serbia , and contributes a lot at the offensive end. Serbia secured victory despite striker Aleksandar Mitrovic missing a big chance in the second half.
Apple is also looking to increase the distance that AirPods can function away from an iPhone or iPad, the news service reported. Talking about the AirPods first, these wireless earphones will be able to feature noise-cancellation and water-resistance.
Serbia must beat Brazil to qualify but a draw could see them through if the Swiss are beaten by Costa Rica by more than one goal . Belgium now have three yellow cards to England's two, meaning this could be a battle of discipline more than anything.
Iran is usually not part of the committee, which includes Russia, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Oman, Kuwait, Algeria and Venezuela. That means the country has little to gain from a deal to raise OPEC output, unlike top oil exporter Saudi Arabia.
Indeed, Argentinian journalist Fernando Niembro has even accused the captain of taking over squad selection duties from Sampaoli. Messi , however, is the kind of player who can make the difference at any time and Les Bleus are well aware of that.
Meanwhile, 31-year-old Punjab-born off-spinner Simranjit Singh will enjoy the spotlight of playing against his erstwhile nation. After thrashing Ireland in the 1st T20I, Team India is all set to face the Irish side in the final and T20I at Dublin .
The last time this "golden generation" of Red Devils thought they had a soft draw they blew it, coach Roberto Martínez said. But Southgate said: "We want to win football matches, so we're not happy to come away from here having been beaten".
There are ongoing debates about whether the election was "free", amid reports of ballot stuffing and vote rigging. Sadi Guven said the president "received the absolute majority of all valid votes", BBC reported.
Fox's share price was trading at $44 early on Wednesday morning, indicating investors believe a bigger bid is likely. Disney said it's raising its offer because Fox's value increased due to "tax reform and operating improvements".
Roberto Martinez happy with top spot
Even tonight's match against Belgium is unlikely to be the test that Southgate would probably like. All the final group matches are played together to avoid what happened to Algeria in 1982.
Germany's emotional state after their World Cup exit
The Germany keeper bobbled the ball and needed to swipe the rebound away from the attackers after a spectacular dive. "We're not going to the last 16, but we did manage to beat the champions and the world number one team", he added.
Harley’s business will be hit if they move production

Harley Davidson to begin moving some production overseas
Ryan says the US should counter unfair trading practices, but says, "There are better tools than tariff increases". For the US, Harley-Davidson production isn't changing: the motorcycles sold in the country will still be made here.
For first time ever, FDA approves marijuana-derived medicine
Epidiolex is also the first prescription created to treat children with Dravet syndrome , according to the FDA's announcement. The FDA has previously sent warning letters to companies that hyped their products as cancer or Alzheimer's fighters.
Cavs want to keep Kevin Love even if LeBron James leaves
If they can retain James and make a couple other moves to better their squad, they could be even more risky next season. But LeBron and the National Basketball Association don't work that way, so they have to do the next best thing.
