Both teams needed penalty victories to get here so while they're confident if the matches go to extra time, the hope is that they don't need another 120 minutes of soccer to progress to the next round. Lionel Messi is pushing to attain the one trophy that he doesn't already possess, and this year Lionel Scaloni and Argentina have the supporting cast to help him do it. But standing in the way is Luka Modric and a Croatia team that won't go down easily.
How to watch Argentina v Croatia on TV and live stream - what channel is World Cup 2022 semi-final in Qatar on? Argentina take on Croatia in an intriguing semi-final clash at the Lusail Iconic Stadium, as Lionel Messi seeks to win his first World Cup. This will surely be Messi’s last chance to win football’s greatest prize, with long-term adversary Cristiano Ronaldo likely to miss out once and for all following Portugal’s shock quarter-final defeat to Morocco.
Messi can get second shot at World Cup glory if Argentina beat Croatia in semiLIONEL MESSI has the chance to take one step closer to immortality if Argentina can beat Croatia in their World Cup semi-final. The Albiceleste won their ill-tempered quarter-final against the Netherlands on penalties - which was the case for both of these two teams. Croatia have now won their last two World Cup games by stunning spot-kicks, and truly sent shockwaves through the globe with their win over Brazil. So now we are down to the semi-finals - the great Messi desperate to add the one big trophy missing from his stunning collection against the underdogs hoping to go one better than in Russia four years ago. Who will come out on top? How did they get here? Argentina had a horror start to the World Cup when they lost to Saudi Arabia but recovered with wins over Mexico and Polan to top Group C.
Croatia have no injury concerns or suspensions and therefore could name an unchanged side from the quarters. Who will be the star men? Of course, Lionel Messi is the standout name as he eyes both the golden ball and the golden boot. If Croatia can somehow stop him, they may well win. Alexis Mac Allister and Julian Alvarez have looked good in recent games, too. Bruno Petkovic came off the bench to beat Alisson on Friday and force penalties so could be rewarded with a start. Ivan Perisic is in good form while goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic has been superb facing penalties - as has opposite number Emi Martinez. What's the head to head? It could not be closer - two wins apiece and one draw. The last meeting, though, bodes well for Croatia who won 3-0 at the 2018 World Cup in Group D on their way to the final.
