MOSCOW, Russia (AP) — Argentina has missed chances and is 0-0 with Croatia at halftime at the World Cup.

Enzo Perez had the best of the opportunities for Argentina in Nizhny Novgorod when the ball fell to him after a mix-up in the Croatian defence. He put his shot wide of the open goal.

Maximiliano Meza earlier had a goal-bound shot blocked and Marcus Acuna hit the crossbar.

Argentina needs a win to get its campaign back on track after a surprise 1-1 draw against Iceland. Croatia started by beating Nigeria 2-0.

Lionel Messi is being kept quiet by Croatia's defence and has shown his frustration with the referee a couple of times after a few decisions went against Argentina.

Croatia can qualify for the knockout stage with a win.
