Croatia beat Argentina 3-0 on Thursday night after going in front thanks to an absolute howler from Willy Caballero.
The Chelsea back-up goalkeeper tried to chip Ante Rebić but succeeded only in teeing him up for a simple but well-taken finish.
On a disappointing night at the World Cup for Lionel Messi, who had his head in his hands before kick off, Luka Modric netted a stunning second before Ivan Rakitić added a third in stoppage time.
Jorge Sampaoli’s side now face an early elimination unless they have a dramatic turnaround in fortune while the Croatians have qualified with a game to spare.
These were the best of the jokes from Argentina 0-3 Croatia in Group D at Russia 2018:

Not entirely buying this Messi let down by his average team mates thing. Renaldo not in the world's greatest squad you know.#ARGCRO
