Cro vs Can
In the third game of Sunday Croatia play Canada in Group F in FIFA World Cup 2022 Qatar

Croatia the 2018 World Cup runners-up take on Canada who are playing their 2nd World Cup on Sunday in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group F as the tournament moves ahead. Croatia go into this game as the favourites.

Kick-off : 7:00 PM (Local)

Venue : Khalifa International Stadium, Doha

Croatia will be disappointed at drawing Morocco in the first game however should take heart from the fact that a point is not a bad thing in international football. They will look for three points against Canada.

The Checkered Ones will require defensive solidarity again which they can be guaranteed as in first showing but attack wise they will require resolute efforts.

Boss Zlatko Dalic will use a 4-3-3 formation on Sunday.

On the other hand, Canada will be disheartened that they couldn’t do the job against Belgium and lost 0-1. They are in a do-or-die situation now.

The Canucks can look forward to again defending as against a superior European opposition. While try to strike as often as they could.

Manager John Herdman will likely utilise the 2-4-2-1 system against the Croats.

Team news and possible lineups

Canada has no fresh injury concerns at the moment.

While Croatia have doubts over Nikola Vlasic and Domagoj Vida.

Croatia XI : Livakovic, Juranovic, Lovren, Gvardiol, Sosa, Modric, Brozovic, Kovacic, Kramaric, Livaja, Perisic.

Canada XI : Borjan, Laryea, Johnstone, Vitoria, Miller, Davies, Buchanan, Hutchinson, Eustaquio, Larin, David.


I think Croatia will have no doubts so as to what the outcome will be from this match and they will look to outperform Canada in all departments to achieve it. This will instil positive aggressive approach from the off and hence a comfortable win. Croatia to win 2-0.
