Photos: Croatian Quality to Deliver Canada 4-1

Alphonso Davies scored Canada’s first goal at a men’s World Cup, but it was Croatia, led by a brace from Andrej Kramaric, who pulled off a stunning 4-1 Group F victory that ended any hope of the North Americans advancing .

After Davies scored with a shot header just over a minute into the game on Sunday, Croatia showed their class with Kramaric equalizing on 36 minutes and Marko Livaja putting the 2018 finalists ahead just before half-time.

Croatia got two more in the second half with Kramaric netting his second in the 70th minute and Lovro Majer scoring in stoppage time.

Croatia join Morocco at the top of the Group F standings with four points and now need only a draw in their last game against Belgium to advance. Canada, at the World Cup for the second time, is bottom of the table and still looking for its first win.
