Croatia to Face Argentina not USA in London Next Month

WORLD CUP ARG HRV SOC The Croatian Football Federation has announced on Tuesday that Argentina will replace USA as Croatia’s opponents in a friendly match next month in London…

Croatia were set to play USA at Fulham’s Craven Cottage ground on 12 November, but today it was confirmed that the World Vice-Champions Argentina would take their place. No reason was given for the change. It will be the fourth time the two sides have met, with the first match played in 1994 when Diego Maradona’s side could only manage a 0-0 draw in Zagreb. The two then met again in France at the 1998 World Cup, with Argentina winning 1-0. In 2006 Croatia got their revenge, beating Argentina 3-2 in a friendly in Basel.
