Argentina disappointed in their first match, a 1-1 draw against Iceland while Croatia beat Nigeria 2-0 to take early control of the group. Should they win again, they're probably through.

So that sort of makes it a must win for Argentina. That's life in four-team groups. All matches are crucial!

Here we go.

Caballero | Tagliafico, Otamendi, Mercado | Acuna, Perez, Mascherano, Salvio | Meza, Aguero, Messi

Croatia starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
