Argentina vs Croatia live stream: match preview
Argentina and Croatia are the two best teams of 2022 World Cup in channeling perceived injustice into stormy performances. Now the two will meet in the first semi-final.

Argentina plays football like they have a knife between their teeth. The street’s classic spirit and tenacity was on display in the Netherlands’ quarter-final defeat to Albiceleste, particularly their reaction to how the Dutch had tried their own Machiavellian tactics to gain advantage in the penalty shootout.
In the end, spot-kick expert Emiliano Martinez – barely retarded about coming forward when it comes to the dark arts in a shootout – saved from Virgil van Dijk and Steven Berghuis to secure Argentina’s semi-final. Even the great Lionel Messi was a bit prickly full-time, coming out of a TV interview to yell “what are you watching, you stupid?” with a yet to be identified member of the Dutch team off-camera.
Croatia have won consecutive shootouts to reach another World Cup semi-final. If one had to knock Japan out in an exhausting game that neither side really deserved to win, then the Vatreni’s comeback against tournament favorite Brazil was typical of the Balkans at its best.
Three minutes into the tournament after Neymar’s stunning goal, Zlatko Dalic’s side did not concede and Bruno Petkovic’s deflected goal ensured that penalties would once again be Croatia’s friend. They’ve reached the semi-finals by leading (against Canada) for just 45 minutes throughout the tournament, but the mental strength Luka Modric and co have to excel at big moments is astonishing. Right back Josip Juranovic also impressed in this tournament.
This semi-final kicks off at 7pm GMT / 2pm EST at the 88,966 seat Lusail Iconic Stadium, Lusail, in Qatar 2022. Make sure you know how to watch an Argentina vs Croatia live stream and watch the entire 2022 FIFA World Cup.
