Croatia Player Ratings vs Argentina

Dominik Livakovic – 5

Gave away the penalty that put his team behind and should have done better on Julian Alvarez’s first goal.

Borna Sosa – 5.5

Didn’t do much wrong but also wasn’t very active in either attack or defence.

Josko Gvardiol – 6

Gvardiol will be back for future World Cups but he ends off this campaign with a solid outing.

Dejan Lovran -5.5

Not a bad night from the veteran but he also wasn’t very good, despite this being an important game

Josip Juranovic – 6

Pretty strong on the defensive side with a number of strong tackles made. Also had a decent showing on the ball.

Mateo Kovacic – 7

The Chelsea man enjoyed a good performance and really tried to make things happen for his team. His passing efficiency was second to none.

Marcelo Brozovic – 5.5

Lost the ball a few times and didn’t offer much defensively. His passing was accurate all night long but they weren’t very incisive.

Luka Modric – 6.5

A typically professional performance for one of Croatia’s greatest players. His night was sadly summed up by the ball hitting him in the face before he was subbed off.

Ivan Perisic – 6.5

Was a bright spark creatively who gave it his all throughout the game. The best chance of scoring was likely to come through him.

Andrej Kramaric – 5.5

His link-up play was decent but he couldn’t carve out any chances despite leading the line for his nation.

Mario Pasalic – 5

Pretty much anonymous on the wing. He managed to get off one shot but rarely did anything when he had the ball at his feet.
