Canada’s first-ever lead in a World Cup came just 120 seconds into the match but it wasn’t enough to keep their hopes alive as Croatia come back to win 4-1 at the Khalifa International Stadium. Davies gave the Canucks their first-ever goal at a World Cup finals, but the advantage lasted just over a half-hour, before Kramaric pulled Dalic’s men back level with an accurate strike. Livaja’s finish a minute before injury time gave the 2018 finalists a 2-1 lead at the half, more or less confirming the result. To their credit, Canada remained positive and looked for a result until the end but confusion at the back would cost them two more after the interval with Perisic linking up with Kramaric for the second time in the game after 70 minutes, before a late Majer tap-in put the finishing touches on the win. The three points give Dalic’s side a chance to finish the group on top, while Canada are eliminated.
