Who’s in and who’s out at the World Cup
MOSCOW (AP) Who’s in, who’s out and possible scenarios at the World Cup:
France clinched advancement with a 1-0 win over Peru on Thursday and leads with six points. Denmark is second with four after a 1-1 draw against Australia, which has one point. Peru has been eliminated. Denmark plays France on Tuesday, when Australia takes on Peru.
Croatia clinched a trip to the second round with a 3-0 shocker over Argentina on Thursday and tops the group with six points. Argentina has one point after two matches and is in big trouble, especially if Iceland (one point) beats Nigeria (no points) on Friday. Argentina plays Nigeria on Tuesday, when Croatia plays Iceland. If Iceland defeats Nigeria, and an Iceland-Croatia draw on the group’s final day would advance Iceland and knock out Argentina.
