Group G

Croatia vs Mexico
Croatia, the third placed team in France 98, proved very unimaginative against Mexico and made matters worse by getting a man sent off.

Italy vs Croatia
Croatia were much improved after their disappointing game against Mexico and really stretched Italy in the second half.

Ecudor vs Croatia
Croatia disappointed with Alen Boksic failing to score even though he had plenty of chances.
