Luka Modric for Croatia

Croatia top Group D with a two nil win against a young Nigerian team at the Kaliningrad Stadium in Kaliningrad.

32′ Croatia took the lead through a Nigerian own goal. Etebo was unfortunate as a Mandzukic header which was bound for a goal kick ricochets off his leg into the back of his own net. 1:0

72′ Croatia takes a corner kick and the referee spots an infringement in deep inside the Nigerian box. A penalty is awarded to Croatia for a foul by Ekong.

Skipper Luka Modric takes responsibility as he cooly converts from the spot kick sending the 19 year old keeper to the opposite direction. 2:0

Croation top Group D with 3 points after a 1-1 draw between Argentina and Iceland. Croatia will face Argentina in the next match while Nigeria will take on debutants Iceland
