Croatia and Canada will play each other in another interesting Group F fixture at the Khalifa International Stadium. Canada suffered a heart-breaking 1-0 defeat against Belgium after playing incredibly well. Whereas Croatia had to settle for a 0-0 draw against Morocco.
No injuries were reported for Canada ahead of the fixture.
Nikola Vlasic is set to be out of the game after suffering an injury against Morocco.
Canada shocked the world with an incredible performance against Belgium in their opening game. Despite suffering a defeat, the Maple Leafs looked like the better team, but Alphonso Davies’ missed penalty held them back. They have a fluid offence with solid players supporting them in the midfield and defence.
Last World Cup finalists Croatia didn’t have a favourable start to their campaign as they drew 0-0 against Morocco. The play in the final third wasn’t up to the mark and the injury to Nikola Vlasic added to their struggles. The defence was solid thanks to an incredible performance by Josko Gvardiol with Modric Magic prevailing in the midfield.
