Croatia vs Canada preview

Canada failed to find the net against Belgium but they showed enough in their opening day loss that they can be an attacking threat.

John Herdman was proud of his team despite their loss and said his team are going to "F" Croatia in this Sunday's match.

Croatia will have to employ a more adventurous playing style in this game than they did against Morocco.

Zlatko Dalic's team had just two shots on target in the goalless draw and the coach said his team were afraid of making mistakes.

Croatia vs Canada tips and predictions

Despite the firepower that both of these teams boast, they had such reserved results in the first round of the competition, so backing them to have another game with under 2.5 goals at 4/5 (1.80) looks smart.
