Perisic tests Bounou
Perisic attempts his luck from close range after spotting a chance to score.
The ambitious attempt was close to the goal, which gave the Moroccan goalkeeper pause.
Wall does its job for Croatia
Morocco has a potentially dangerous opportunity, but Croatia’s wall stops Ziyech’s free-kick shot.
It’s a fast-paced and competitive game
So far, the game is fiercely competitive. For Croatia, Gvardiol is doing well in regaining possession, but Hakimi and Ziyech are working well together for Morocco.
Modric keeps breaking records
Luka Modric, who turned 37 this year, assisted Croatia in making it to the World Cup final.
Good defending from Lovren
Moroccan hit man Typically, En-Nesyri thrives when it is at a crossroads. He now accomplishes that by catching a long ball that is played toward Croatia’s goal.
However, Lovren is composed and aware of the threat, removing the ball from the striker.
