Argentina vs Croatia
The Real Madrid star is 32 years old and his prime is almost over, but he is still a player that can make a big impact. He doesn’t rely on speed, just using his body to find space and get the attack going with pinpoint passes. He’s a top midfielder and will be the engine in the middle for the Europeans.
IVAN RAKITIC

Argentina vs Croatia
The magnificent Midfielder of Barcelona, has good records for Club football as well International, Here he want to make score to his Nation.
DOMAGOJ VIDA

Argentina vs Croatia
The 29-year-old defender is one of the more intimidating players at the cup. He is strong, agile and at times reckless. He must be focused, because he’s the top of guy with one silly challenge he gets a red card. He’s a darn good player, but he must be composed.
