Croatia vs Argentina 1-1?

Argentina and Croatia will face off for a place in the 2022 FIFA World Cup final.

Both sides sealed their place in the semifinals with penalty shootout victories last time out against the Netherlands and Brazil respectively.

These two teams are no strangers to deep runs at World Cups with Croatia looking to make consecutive finals, while Argentina played the decisive match back in 2014.
