The second half is underway!

Neither team could claim to have dominated that first half. Croatia had four shots to Argentina’s two, but only one Croatian shot was on target. Argentina had slightly more possession, with 55 percent, but too little of that ball-handling was by Messi. He had a couple vaguely threatening moments — notably when he barely missed a floating toe-poke in front of goal — but was largely absent again. We’ll see if Argentina has a plan to get him more of the ball.


Modric’s pass sprung Rebic on a break out of the Croatian half, but Mercado snuffs it out at midfield with a cynical tackle that earns him a yellow card.


A huge error by Argentine goalkeeper Willy Caballero! He absolutely flubs a pass to a defender, popping it straight up for Rebic to volley into the net.


Luka Modric has made it two for Croatia
