Croatia, 2018 world vice-champion and Morocco’s first opponent at the 2022 World Cup, beat Saudi Arabia (1-0), Wednesday in Riyadh, in its last preparation match, a week before its debut in Qatar.

The Croats won thanks to a late goal from Andrej Kramaric (82nd), at the end of a balanced match, where the leader Luka Modric, Ballon d’Or 2018, came into play for the last half hour.

The Croats, who are in Group F with Belgium, Canada and Morocco, will enter the fray on November 23 against the Atlas Lions at the Al Bayt stadium in Al Khor, north of Doha.

Saudi Arabia will start on November 22 against Argentina, in a group C which also includes Mexico and Poland.
