Croatia, who beat Nigeria 2-0 in Kaliningrad on Saturday, will face Argentina on Thursday.

"It's going to be a different and a difficult match. We are a bit ahead, we have to be well-prepared. Of course, three more points would help us to progress and Argentina could be on their way home. But we have to be focused on ourselves," Dalic told journalists at the post-match press conference.

Croatia will play their final group stage match against Iceland on June 26.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicked off on Thursday and will continue until July 15, with the matches set to be played in 11 cities across Russia.
