Argentina lost to Croatia 3-0 on Thursday and placed them in an extremely difficult position to move on from Group D. It also has people who ask: Is Argentina from 2018 World Cup ?
After two matches Argentina puts itself at one point. Croatia has six points with two matches. Iceland has a point, and Nigeria has zero points and they play tomorrow.
So, for Argentina to come out of this group, they need a few things to happen.
- Iceland ties or loses to Nigeria tomorrow.
- Croatia then needs to hit or tie Island.
All three things will allow Argentina to move on.
If Iceland is battling Nigeria tomorrow, there is still a chance Argentina could sneak in, but because it would happen they beat Nigeria and then Iceland lost to Croatia and then it would come down to a tiebreaker because both teams should be on four points.
Goal difference would determine at that time, and if the goal difference is the same, it will go to yellow cards, of which Argentina has more than a few. (That's the true chaos scenario.)
If none of the above happens, Argentina is eliminated.
Argentina is not dead anyway, but they need some help about Lionel Messi and Co. want to get out of this. And if you wonder about the situation of any other team, this will work for all World Cup players.
