Jack87 news today, asianbookie Croatia are hoping Argentina’s ill-tempered World Cup quarter-final qualifier, which saw them beat the Netherlands with 16 yellow cards and one red card, does not spill over into Tuesday’s semi-final, coach Zlatko Dalic said on Monday.

Argentina eventually won on penalties after squandering a two-goal lead, but the game was overshadowed by indiscipline from both sides throughout.

Argentina captain Lionel Messi swapped notes with Dutch coach Louis van Gaal after the bk8 final whistle and called a Dutch player a “fool”.

Croatia, bk8 malaysia runners-up in 2018, have tasted the Argentine’s temper in the past after then-Argentine coach Jorge Sampaoli refused to shake Dalic’s hand after beating them in the group stages of the 2018 World Cup.

Dalic, however, said he held no grudges after his side beat title favorites Brazil on penalties to reach the semi-finals of their second consecutive World Cup.

“I understand the actors involved and the expectations were high at the time (in 2018). It happened and we hold no grudges,” Dalic told a news conference on Monday.

“I’m not going to get angry with anyone who gets emotional. The Argentina-Netherlands game was also very intense and there was a lot of non-football behavior. I really hope that doesn’t happen tomorrow.”

Argentine players also taunted the Dutchman at the end of the penalty shootout, while some Dutch players provoked the Argentine during the game.

“Tomorrow’s game is a great game for Argentina and for us. The stakes are high for both sides, a place in the final,” Dalic said.

Croatia are on track to reach their second consecutive World Cup final after losing an exhibition match in 2018 to defending world champions France, who faced Morocco in the other semi-final.

Asked to comment on Croatia’s success over the past four years, Dalic said their 2018 semi-final win over England was their biggest game to date.

“For me, the semi-final against England was the greatest game ever. Brazil’s game (in the quarter-finals in Qatar) is second and tomorrow’s game will be third. ,” Dalic said.

“But if we win tomorrow, it will be the greatest game ever played by the Croatian team.”

Dalic’s advice to his players and the few fans traveling to Qatar is to enjoy the asianbookie bk8 game.

“I always say to our fans and players to enjoy football,” he said.

“Each of us has to enjoy the jobs and careers we do. The players can only be who they are if they are happy.

“They deservedly become one of the four best teams in the world.”
