The Belgians are in trouble against the Croats


35′ Carrasco’s cross is parried by the Serbian defense before Meunier tries a second pass, this time too long.


32′ Sosadan passed to Livaja, who headed the ball but couldn’t clear it. It goes over the cage.


31′ Modric is trying to get a little acceleration on the wing. The Belgian defenders are in good position and keep the ball in touch.


📊 This starting number of the match: 8

In the number of shots, Belgium dominated the match (1 against 4), while Croatia was in a position to get injured more often. Croatian footballers have touched 8 balls in the territory of Belgium since the start of the match. 6 vs. 6 for the Red Devils.

In the Croatian free kick, Kramaric falls in the penalty area after a Belgian defender touches his leg. Not sure if the penalty is really there…


13′ Mertens failure! De Bruyne starts a counter from his camp, going all over the turf before serving to Mertens, who misses his shot completely. It was a shame because there were few Croatian defenders.

11′ What a Belgian move! Mertens makes a good call and serves alone on the right wing. It is centralized, but its partners are far away. Carrasco still returns the ball and hits the Belgian keeper. Belgium take the first corner, but miss the chance.


9′ Carrasco’s shot was taken! “Red devils” want it. It is up to them to put pressure on Croatia’s defence.


8′ The game, which was very intense in the first minutes, calmed down. Two teams temporarily stand in the middle of the field and observe each other.

Final for the Red Devils

Nothing is decided in Group F, dominated by Croatia (4 points), followed by Morocco (4 points). 3rd placed Belgium (3 points) is almost out of the standings at the moment. A win will take him to the 1/8 finals, and a draw will eliminate him from the world championship in Qatar. In short, the tension for the “red devils” will reach its peak.
