The start of the match came quickly by the Croatian national team, as it became clear to him after he dominated the course of things early in an attempt to settle his affairs by scoring a decisive goal.
The first threat in the match was to Croatia in the first minute through a shot from Ivan Perisic, who almost scored the fastest goal in the history of the World Cup, but it ended with a goal kick from Thibaut Courtois, Belgium goalkeeper.
In the 16th minute, Anthony Taylor, the referee of the match, awarded a penalty kick in favor of the Croatian national team, after Carrasco interfered with Andrei Kramaric inside the penalty area, but after returning to the VAR, the referee canceled the penalty kick due to the presence of offside from the start of the game on Diane Lovren.
Calmness dominated most of the half, as the Croatian national team continued to pass the ball in the middle of the field, in order to penetrate Belgium’s defenses to score the first goal.
