As the second half starts, Argentina lead Croatia 2-0 on goals by Lionel Messi and Julián Álvarez in the first Semifinal at the Lusail Stadium in Al Daayen.

After 30 minutes of a locked game in which Croatia was very orderly in defence and had only allowed one Argentina shot by Enzo Fernández in the 25th minute, the game opened up when Messi started controlling the ball and pushing forward.

Goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic had no choice in the 32nd minute but to foul Álvarez as he cut into the penalty area. The referee Daniele Orsato awarded Argentina a penalty kick and yellow carded both Livakovic and Kovacic.

Messi stepped up in the 34th minute, blasted a powerful shot past Livakovic. The keeper guessed right but the shot was too strong.

That’s Messi’s 5th goal in the World Cup.

Then in the 39th minute, Álvarez worked his way through the defence and hammered the second goal for the 2-0 lead.

Argentina are 45 minutes away from booking a ticket for the Finals against either Morocco or defending champions France who play the second Semifinal on Wednesday.
