Croatia defeated Iceland 2-1 here on Tuesday to go into the knockout rounds of the 2018 FIFA World Cup as the top team in Group D. Milan Badelj (53rd) and Ivan Perisic (90th) scored for Croatia. Gylfi Sigurdsson had rekindled some momentary hopes for Iceland when he converted a penalty in the 76th minute. Croatia finished the group stage with nine points, having won all their three matches. Iceland finished at the bottom of the group with one point. It was a disappointing end to their campaign, which had started with a lot of promise when they held formidable Argentina 1-1 in their opening match.
