World Cup: Croatia Wins Iceland 2:1

Iceland’s run in the World Cup was brought to an end in their 1:2 loss to Croatia. The Croatian team had already qualified prior to the match while Iceland needed to win the match to stand any chance of qualifying.

Milan Badelj opened scoring for the Croatians in the 53rd minute and Iceland equalized from the penalty spot in the 76th minute. The match was laid to rest in the 90th minute when Perisic scored Croatia’s second goal.

Croatia ends the group stage with 9 full points while Iceland leave with just a point. Croatia will now take on Denmark in the first knockout stage.

Zlatko Dalic, the Croatian Coach was full of confidence in his post match conference. He said “We have three wins, nine points, with a goal difference of 7-1. That only goal we got was from the penalty, so we have to be happy. The first place was our goal, we did it. I am convinced that this game in the Round of 16 will not be our end, we are waiting for Sunday to show the true power, this is the day of truth for us.”
