How did Croatia and Denmark get to the knockouts?

Croatia

Croatia have reached the knock outs in spectacular fashion, beating Argentina, Iceland and Nigeria to top their group.

Denmark

Having closed out their group stage campaign with arguably the worst match of the tournament (a drab 0-0 draw with France) Denmark look happy to just be in the knock-out stage. They finished Group C runners-up with two draws and a win.

Who are the players to look out for?

He’s captain for a reason: Luka Modric has long since displayed his talent at Real Madrid but he’s having the World Cup of his career thanks to a wonderful performance against Argentina.

Spurs star Christian Eriksen is Denmark’s talisman and one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.

Who’s the top scorer for each team?

Croatia’s top scorer is Luka Modric with two goals.
