Live comments

  • 0' - The match kicks off with home fans waiting with anticipation for Croatia to score. At the same time, Nigeria does not seem to pull back! Let’s get it on!
  • 5' - It’s high time Zlatko Dalic made some changes to put the his team’s game back to action.
  • 10' - The teams are not in a rush to score plenty of goals. It might look strange considering Croatia that had 165 games and scored 38 goals.
  • 15' - It looks like no one’s ball. Nigeria is used to counterattacking playing. None of the sides are ready to take the lead.
  • 20' - looks like a favorite considering 0 games won in last 0 matches with its main striker scoring goals.
  • 25' - Croatia is defending very well tonight not leaving a chance for their rivals to get through for a goal.
  • 30' - It’s a booking for Croatia player. Ivan Rakitic gets a Yellow card.
  • 32' - Nigeria is taking the lead after the goal scored by Oghenekaro Etebo on 32.
  • 37' - Although teams showed high tempo form the start, they seem to slow down a bit. Both sides really need to catch a fire. Otherwise, we have another goalless match.
  • 42' - Both teams are passing the ball around with high level of urgency. Croatia needs to do something about it to get closer to the goal.
  • 47' - The travelling Nigeria supporters hardly appreciate their team being pressed down to the backline.
  • 52' - The referee is likely to let players tackle, as he already missed some meaty challenges during opening seconds. He is still to establish what should not be done by the players and what is acceptable on the pitch. It’s going to be a tough game for Leon Balogun suffering a number of foals already.
  • 57' - While there is no rush on the pitch, let’s have a look at some stats. Mario Mandzukic made 419 appearances and scored 22 goals. He is very likely to score a goal today.
  • 60' - Marcelo Brozovic is replacing Andrej Kramaric for the Croatia side.
  • 62' - Another substitution for Nigeria to replace Alex Iwobi by Ahmed Musa on 62 minute.
  • 67' - It looks surprising Croatia does not make any changes. Ivan Rakitic has some obvious troubles when approaching to the goal.
  • 70' - William Troost-Ekong is having his name booked by the referee on 70.
  • 71' - What a strike from Luka Modric! The score is 1-1.
  • 72' - Another substitution for Nigeria to replace Odion Ighalo by Kelechi Iheanacho on 72 minute.
  • 77' - Nigeria seems to be on a short break. The game is mainly concentrated in the center. It’s high time they got back to action. Otherwise, it looks like a goalless game.
  • 78' - Mateo Kovacic is replacing Ante Rebic for the Croatia side.
  • 83' - Andrej Kramaric needs to be pretty careful with his discipline considering 0 Yellow cards this season.
  • 86' - Another substitution for Croatia to replace Mario Mandzukic by Marko Pjaca on 86 minute.
  • 88' - Time for substitution for Nigeria. John Obi Mikel is replaced by Simeon Nwankwo.
  • 89' - Marcelo Brozovic is having his name booked by the referee on 89.
  • Full Time. Croatia beats Nigeria
