After drawing their first game and a vital penalty miss from their star man, Lionel Messi, Argentina really needed a convincing win against Croatia but their first-half performance was anything but convincing and their start to the second half was even worse.

They went 1-0 down following a terrible mistake from Argentina 'keeper, Caballero.

The ball was routinely passed back by an Argentinian defender to the 'keeper who bizarrely tried to chip it over the on-coming Croatian attacker, Ante Rebic.

Rebic managed to stop the ball and with the 'keeper off his line, swung for the ball on the volley and put it flying over Caballero and into the back of the net.

What is the 'keeper thinking here:

A terrible howler but some finish all the same.
