Canada’s World Cup hopes over following loss to Croatia

Despite scoring its first goal in World Cup history, the Canadian men’s national team will not advance from the World Cup group stage after a 4-1 loss to Croatia on Sunday.

Canada opened the game on fire, with Alphonso Davies flying through the air to head home the historic marker off a Tajon Buchanan cross just 67 seconds in.

But Les Rouges were unable to hang on to the lead, allowing Croatia to bounce back with goals from Andrej Kramaric and Marko Livaja to take a 2-1 lead into halftime.

Croatia then scored in the second half, courtesy of Kramaric again and Lovro Majer, to ice the game.

Canada still has one more game to play Thursday against Morocco, but with losses to Belgium and now Croatia, will not be able to catch either Morocco or Croatia in the Group F standings.

More to come.
