Croatia Start FIFA U-20 World Cup With Win

Croatia has had the perfect start to the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey with a 1-0 win over Uruguay on Sunday night.

The only goal of the match came from the man on the radar of Tottenham Hotspurs, Ante Rebic. The big Split striker beat the Uruguayan keeper with a clinical finish from just inside the box in the 41st minute. Dinko Jelicic’s side, who also missed a penalty, deserved their victory and now face Uzbekistan on Wednesday in their next group match.
