Clinical Croatia comeback knocks Canada out of World Cup

Croatia came from behind to knock Canada out of the World Cup with a 4-1 victory in their Group F clash.

Alphonso Davies opened the scoring for Canada after just two minutes - with their first-ever World Cup goal at the fifth attempt - but two goals from Andrej Kramaric either side of a Marko Livaja effort turned the game on its head. Substitute Lovro Majer then added a late fourth.

It left Canada pointless and heading home already ahead of their final group game against Morocco, with their first venture in the tournament since Mexico in 1986 being brought to a premature end.

For Croatia, it left them top of the group, knowing now that a point in their final game against Belgium on Thursday will be enough to see them progress.
