Croatia vs Belgium live: World Cup score, highlights, result from 2022 Group F match as Mertens misses great chance

Croatia and Belgium meet at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium knowing that one of the two heavyweights of Group F could be heading for the World Cup exit door. In what is their ninth meeting at international level, there is plenty on the line in this one, as both chase the win that will likely be needed to guarantee a spot in the Round of 16. Belgium were widely expected to lead the pack in this group -- they were the No.2-ranked nation in the world heading into the Qatar tournament after all -- but a surprise defeat to Morocco last time out has left them on the brink. Croatia's ageing squad may be past its best, but with Luka Modric still pulling the strings in midfield they remain a potent threat.
