Croatia and Denmark fight for a spot in the quarterfinals and look to extend their World Cup runs.
GOAL Mathias Jorgensen! Denmark 1-0 Croatia
Didn’t see that coming! Denmark have the lead after just 65 seconds, and off a long throw of all things. No one marks Thomas Delaney, who picks up the ball in the box, tries to make space for himself, and deliberately or not, taps it to Zanka. The Danish center back takes a hopeful shot and it goes in.
With progression to the group stage locked up, Marcelo Brozovic suspended and a few other players at risk for suspension, Croatia rotated heavily in its final group stage game. But against Denmark, in the World Cup round of 16, all of the first choice players have returned.
The Danes have a suspended player back in too, with Yurary returning to the lineup in attack. In a bit of a surprising move, Jonas Knudsen comes into the defense, making his first start of the tournament.

Argentina defeats Nigeria in dramatic fashion, joins Croatia in Round of 16
Croatia, meanwhile, took care of business against Iceland despite resting some stars.
