FIFA World Cup 2022: Croatia vs Canada prediction, time, live-streaming details

by Soumadeep Bagchi

On November 27, Croatia and Canada will have their second match in Group D. While Cand put up a great show in their first match against Belgium despite losing 0-1, Croatia had a goalless draw against Morocco.

The two teams will be meeting for the first time. While Canada have a poor record at FIFA world cups, Croatia were the runners-up in 2018 and finished third in 1998. That said, the Canadian squad are to be judged for the future they hold, rather than their history.

Key Players
Five of Croatia’s starting 11 are 30 years of age or older. They lack power, range and mobility. Canada, on the contrary, have Davies as their captain who is just 22. Not an individual player but the entire young team of Canada will be key in this match.

Date, Time & Venue
The Croatia vs Canada match will be played on November 27 at 9:30 PM (Indian time) in the Khalifa International Stadium, Doha.

Live-streaming Details
The Croatia vs Canada match will be broadcast live on the Sports18 and Sports18 HD TV channels in India and Jio Cinema’s app and website will both offer free live streaming of the event.

Canada score their first goal in history of men’s World Cup

A Croatian corner kick, some nifty footwork from Modric, and the marquee Europeans are starting to show their class. A ball goes out near the flag and is ruled a throw-in rather than a corner kick, but the throw-in is so long that there’s hardly a difference.

9th min: Chance, Canada! Cyle Larin is clean through on goal and nearly has a second, but he’s blocked away with good goalkeeping from Dominik Livakovic. The flag goes up, so it wouldn’t have counted anyways, and the replay shows he was well off. In the end it’s a great offside trap from the Croatian defense.

7th min: A YIKES moment for Milan Borjan in goal for Canada as he spills a deflected cross right on the goal line, but there’s no Croatian player to pounce and it’s ultimately not punished.

Croatia vs. Canada: First half
36th min: GOAL! CROATIA! It’s been coming, and there’s the equalizer! Kramaric, who has been knocking on the door for quite a while, is the man with the breakthrough. It comes on a great diagonal ball from Ivan Perisic on the right edge of the penalty area, and the Croatian striker had a decent window for the equalizer.

35th min: Chance, Croatia! As we thought, there’s a great look on goal at the end of that Croatian possession, and it requires a BIG SAVE from Milan Borjan! Modric’s vertical ball feeds a striker, but Borjan is there to keep it out from a tight angle.

34th min: The pressure from Croatia is unrelenting, and only last-ditch defending keeps them from getting a good shot on goal from a long throw. Luka Modric has the best look, but it’s blocked. Canadian defenders scrambling just to put a lid on things.

A wonderful cross from Modric is just inches over the head of Kramaric. There’s a goal in this possession if it keeps up…

30th min: Croatia have looked the better side over the past 5-10 minutes, and Canada will need to be careful. Canada are still getting forward in this end-to-end game, but they have not been able to put together the end product since their bright opening.

Tajon Buchanan is needed to track back and make a tackle after a Croatian attacker got behind Johnston. Lots of Croatian pressure.

26th min: DISALLOWED GOAL FOR CROATIA! It’s a GORGEOUS goal from Croatia, as Andrej Kramaric beats the Canada defense one-on-three, but the flag is up for offside. It’s actually not Kramaric who’s offside, it’s Livaja, the man who fed him on the break who was just leaning past the defensive line. A massive warning for the Canadian defense.
