Croatia - Belgium: World Cup in Qatar 2022, live | The world runner-up faces the Belgian team with qualification for the round of 16 at stake


The team led by Luka Modric will be in the next round if they draw or win. Roberto Martínez's men need to defeat the Croats to depend on themselves

Croatia and Belgium meet this Wednesday in a match that will decide which of the two teams goes to the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar.

The reigning world runner-up, led by Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric, will be through to the next round if he scores at least a draw.

If they win, they will almost certainly be first, unless Morocco thrashes Canada in the other Group F match. Roberto Martínez's men, who reached the semifinals in the previous World Cup, are forced to defeat Croatia to advance to the round of 16 , although they arrive at a delicate moment, with tensions in the dressing room after the defeat against Morocco (0-2).

The Belgium coach has opted to make changes in this match: the Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard, captain of the team, will start on the bench.

Kevin de Bruyne, between frustration and fear before the decisive day of Belgium against Croatia

David Alvarez

When Batshuayi scored against Canada in the first game and Belgium finally took the lead, Kevin de Bruyne did not go to celebrate.

He turned in the opposite direction and went to discuss with Roberto Martínez, the coach, what he saw was not working.

Alderweireld stepped forward to embrace him and De Bruyne waved him away.

He needed to talk to the technician.

He was frustrated to see that they couldn't find a way to overcome the pressure in the center of the Canadians, and the team did not do what he thought necessary.
