 Chelsea Star Fàbregas Blasts Argentina After Loss: They Were Playing Against Each Other
Argentina are in desperate trouble following their shock 3-0 loss to Croatia in their second match of the 2018 World Cup, a defeat which means their fate is no longer in their hands.

The Croats became the first team to qualify for the last sixteen in Group D courtesy of second half goals from Ante Rebic, Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic.

Chelsea Star Cesc Fàbregas has agreed that it was one of the worst performances by an Argentinian side and questioned the commitment and the unity of the South American players.

''In midfield they played well but I think Argentina made it so easy for them. They were a broken team, they were playing five attackers and five defenders,'' Fabregas stated in his post-match analysis on BBC.

''If you are a midfielder this is exactly what you want, you have so much time, space, you can keep the ball, you can do whatever you want.

''It felt sometimes that Argentina were not playing for each other, they were playing against each other. The passes were terrible, nothing.'' 

The Super Eagles and Argentina meet for the fifth time in the group stage of the World Cup at the Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg on June 26.
