GOAL Argentina leads by 2 goals, imagine how Croatia defenders are following Alvarez like sheep following the master.
GOAL! Argentina 2-0 Croatia (Alvarez 39)
Argentina counter, and double their lead with a wonder goal from Alvarez! Messi thinks he’s been fouled in the centre circle, but the ball breaks to Alvarez and the ref waves play on. Alvarez dribbles down the middle at three dark blue shirts.
De Paul and Molina swarm around, confusing the defenders. Alvarez keeps going, enters the box, gets a slightly lucky break off Sosa, and pokes past Livakovic! It’s not quite Maradona 86 … but it isn’t half bad!
