Ronaldo’s goal on Tuesday led to a 1-0 Portugal victory over Morocco, knocking the North African team out of the tournament.
Argentina vs. Croatia
The match between Argentina and Croatia will be held at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium.
Argentina is ready to take on Croatia as Argentina's striker expressed hope in the team's performance and Messi's skills.
"We are all with him, he knows that he can count on the support of all of us more than ever," Argentina striker Paulo Dybala said of Messi.
Even before the start of the World Cup, Group D, which includes Argentina, Iceland, Nigeria and Croatia, was named the Group of Death due to the unpredictable results in the group.
Croatia may even settle for a draw, whereas, the Argentines really need a win, otherwise in the last group stage match with Nigeria not everything will depend on the South Americans. Argentina’s draw with Iceland was dangerous for the team.
France vs. Peru
The match will be held at the Yekaterinburg Arena in the city of Yekaterinburg. The team has promised to step up their game.
"We took stock of what was done well or not so well and all agree that we will have to increase our physical intensity and improve our attitude in general," said France vice-captain and central defender Raphael Varane.
Australia vs. Denmark
This match will be held at the Samara Arena, as Australia will face Denmark in a Group C showdown on Thursday.
Fans are thrilled to see the upcoming match and many are rooting for Argentina winning with Messi being the star of the game.
