Eight minutes later, it was Croatia’s turn to lead Canada through Marko Livaja’s goal which beat Canadian goalkeeper Milan Barjan for the second time.
Not satisfied with one goal, Kramaric continued to prove his finishing skills when he scored the team’s third goal in the 70th minute before substitute Lovro Majer scored the fourth goal in second-half stoppage time.
Men 2018 runners-up Zlatko Dalic will be in action in the final match against Belgium while Morocco face Canada in the final group stage match that will decide the top two teams.
