In their first game in Qatar 2022, Croatia failed against Morocco and sealed a 0-0 score. The World runner-up had a higher record of possession of the ball with an average of 63%. However, the Arab team neutralized their attack attempts.

Ending the first half at the Al Bayt stadium, Nikola Vlasic had the clearest situation. Croatian full-back Borna Sosa launched a cross, Vlasic pulled off a powerful shot and Moroccan goalkeeper Yassine Bounou excelled with his save.

In other editions of the World Cup, the Croatian team was able to win its two games against African rivals: 4-0 vs. Cameroon in Brazil 2014 and 2-0 vs. Nigeria in Russia 2018.

For their part, Canada could not beat Belgium’s goal and ended with a 1-0 defeat at the Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium. The team led by John Herdman deserved more: they had clearer plays and recorded 23 shots, but failed to move the score in their favor. Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois not only saved a penalty taken by Alphonso Davies. He also demonstrated his quality against the onslaught of the Canadians.

In this edition, he will seek to win his first victory and score his first goal in the history of the tournament.
