Croatia 3-1 Canada LIVE! Kramaric goal – World Cup 2022 match stream, latest score updates today

There is an unexpected World Cup grudge match in Group F after Canada coach John Herdman said his team would “F” Croatia in their second group game. “I told them we’re going to go and ‘F’ Croatia,” he said after Canada lost 1-0 to Belgium in their first World Cup match since 1986.

Herdman has since apologised but Croatia boss Zlatko Dalic has hit back and said the 2018 runners-ups deserve respect. A tabloid newspaper in Croatia printed a full-page photo of a naked Herdman with maple leaves covering his mouth and private parts alongside the headline: “You have the mouth, but do you have the balls as well?”

It all makes for what should be a spicy clash as Croatia bid to get their tournament up and running after a 0-0 draw with Morocco in their first game. You can keep up to date with all the action via Standard Sport’s LIVE blog!

That should be game over! Perisic plays a ball through to Kramaric. He takes one touch to turn away from his marker and fires into the bottom to put Croatia two goals in front. Canada are heading out of the World Cup unless they can come up with something special in the final 20 minutes.

Mateo Kovacic is looking sharp on this World Cup stage. He has been one of those putting Canada to the sword with the superior technique.

That Croatian spine that also features Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric, Josko Gvardiol and ex-Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is controlling the game.
