The World Cup in Qatar has entered the last row and tonight (Monday) we get two round of 16 games, with the first one bringing together Japan and Croatia at this time.
The Samurai shocked the football world when they beat Germany and Spain in the group stage and now they will want to continue their great journey towards the last 8 as well.
On the other hand, there is the finalist of the previous World Cup who lost 4:2 to France in the final in Moscow.
Professionally, for the Japanese the stopper Ko Itakura who has not missed a single minute in the tournament to date is absent due to yellows as Arsenal defender Takehiro Tomiasu takes his place.
For the Balkans, Zlatko Dalic started with Bruno Petkovic in place of Marko Livaya in the forward line.
Luka Modric, Marcelo Brozovic and Matthew Kovacevich start in midfield and will try to take another step forward.
