World Cup debutants Iceland proved they can compete against the top teams and will depart Russian Federation with their heads held high even if they failed to win a single game, Hallgrimsson said after the match.

He was one of nine players drafted into the Croatia XI after Thursday's win against Argentina, but one wouldn't have suspected there were so many alterations based on the sustained quality of their play. Croatia enters the round of 16 with tons of confidence as the victor of Group D over pre-tourney favorites Argentina.

Soon after the break the match turned when Fiorentina midfielder Badelj first clipped the bar with a long-range drive, then made no mistake soon after on 53 minutes.

With Five minuets remaining in the half, Iceland had another go at Kalinic's goal as Alfred Finnbogason's effort from distance sailed inches wide of the upright.

A rest of nearly 10 days without having to play 90 minutes will do a raft of their stars the world of good before the round of 16, although a likely quarter-final against Spain presents a problem in the near future.

Milan Badelj crashed a volley against the bar, and moments later scored for Croatia in the 53rd minute, sprinting into the area to fire a bouncing shot past goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson. "This is a big new win for Croatia".

First, a flick-on from another Gunnarsson long throw found Sverrir Ingason whose header was tipped over by Kalinic. As for Croatia, it has a round of 16 date against Denmark on Sunday.

Croatia continued to threaten, however, with Iceland starting to appear tired, and Perisic finished off the win in the 90th minute, scoring left-footed from 12 yards to secure the victory.

The Iceland defender Sverrir Ingason almost scored twice just moments later, heading just over and then again off the crossbar.
