Croatia whip Argentina 3-0, threatening 1st-round exit for Messi & company

Croatia is into the next round of the FIFA World Cup after a 3-0 win over Argentina.

Argentina is now third in the Group D standings with the same points as Iceland, which is making its World Cup debut, after tying Iceland in the first match.

To make matters worse, a win over Nigeria would leave Iceland three points ahead and with at least a four-goal advantage in the goal differential column.

Argentina needs some help at this point to make it out of the group stage.

A goal differential of minus-3 is all but a death knell.
