Croatia cemented a place in the Round of 16 after a 3-0 victory over Argentina on Thursday. With a couple of dubious errors from Argentina goalkeeper Willy Caballero, Ante Rebic, Luka Modric anbd Ivan Rakitic scored the goals for the European nation. Modric fired a tremendous long-range effort inside the goal, and the skipper led from the front. He was awarded the man-of-the-match for his performance and after the massive win, the Real Madrid midfielder received praise from twitterati.

Argentina suffered their heaviest defeat in the first round group stages since losing 6-1 to Czechoslovakia in 1958. Here is how twitterati reacted:
