The Croatian National Team obtained its first victory in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, after defeating Canada 4-1, which ended up saying goodbye to the World Cup.
The Canadian team woke up very early, because with just two minutes on the clock, the Bayern Munich player, Alphonso Davies, managed to open the scoring, they even made history by scoring the fastest goal so far in the international competition; as well as the first goal for his team in a World Cup.
However, the Canadians’ taste did not last long, as the Croatians Andrej Kramarić and Marko Livaja threw a party to give Croatia the momentary advantage, who resolved part of the match during the first half by being present at 36′ and 44 ‘, respectively.

Canada searched one way and another for an equalizer and although the coach John Herdman moved his pieces to equalize the cards, his tactics were ineffective, as Andrej Kramarić appeared again to score a double and make it 3-1 with which he sank to the Maple Leaf.
Lovro Majer sentenced the condemnation of the Canadians, because with this defeat he added his second game lost and was placed as the second team eliminated, after Qatar , which also retired with two defeats.
