Croatia head coach Zlatko Dalic says that his team will not "adjust" to Argentina when the two teams lock horns at the 2018 World Cup.

Croatia head coach Zlatko Dalic has insisted that his team will not "adjust" to Argentina when the two teams lock horns in their second Group D clash at the 2018 World Cup on Thursday.

Croatia opened their tournament with a 2-0 win over Nigeria on Saturday night, but Argentina were held to a 1-1 draw by Iceland.

Dalic has said that his side will 'respect all of their opponents' this summer, but has insisted that the Blazers will 'play their style' against Argentina next time out.

"We will respect all our opponents, particularly Argentina, but we will not adjust to them," he told reporters. "We will play our style. We lead the group.

"We will have some tweaks when we play Argentina but we will not be calculating - we are going to play our game. I said after the draw it would be one of the easiest matches we could play. It will be a joy to play against one of the best teams in the world."

A win for Croatia on Thursday night would see them progress into the knockout round of the competition.
