Iceland vs Croatia 1-2 Highlights 26 June 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

Iceland are looking to make a play for second place in Group D and Croatia are they only ones that stand in their way.

The Croatian team has been very successful so far but they are expected to rest several players following a press conference given by coach Zlatko Dalic last week. This is no surprise as Croatia have already secured their place in the round of 16.

Their comfortable position will allow them to rest several players who may be at risk of suspension if they receive another yellow card. Two notable players who have already received yellow cards are Ivan Rakitić and Mario Mandžukić.

If Nigeria beat Argentina then Iceland could be in with a chance to make it through to the knockout stage of the competition.

A revamped but businesslike Croatia topped their World Cup group as Ivan Perisic's 90th-minute goal helped them maintain their perfect record with a 2-1 win on Tuesday that also ended Iceland's qualification hopes.
