Argentina v Croatia Prediction: World Cup Match on 13.12.2022
But will they achieve what was once viewed as impossible? To stand any chance of winning the trophy, the Croatians must see off Lionel Messi and his free-flowing Argentina side. Of course, no mean feat, but there isn’t the same clamber to oppose Croatia as we saw in the earlier rounds. They have hardly put a foot wrong and continue to grow in strength.
It may have been a widespread belief that Croatia got lucky to reach the final in Moscow, but the nation knew it deserved its silver medal. And they knew they would be back for more. Fans didn’t see it as luck but the product of many years of hard work and belief. We now find Croatia in the final four, and it would be no surprise if they were to go through and contest another final. Will they get the chance to right the wrongs of four years ago? A rematch between Croatia and France wouldn’t be the biggest surprise in Qatar, that’s for sure.
