Croatia-Portugal 2-3

Croatia also lost its last match in the A League of Nations against Portugal in the group.

The world runners-up started the season better as in the 29th minute Kovacic would score, with which result the first half would end. In the second half things would be difficult for the Croats as Marko Rog is sent off with red card in the 51st minute. The equalizer came in the 53rd minute where Ruben Dias scored. The Portuguese came to the first lead in this match in the 60th minute through Joao Felix, but five minutes later the Croatians would equalize with Kovacic. When it was thought that the match would end in a draw in the first extra minute for the Portuguese, Ruben Dias scored, to provide Portugal with 3 points that still did not help them much after they had lost the group and it belonged to France. Croatia, despite losing, remains in the A League of Nations, while Sweden, which lost 4-1 next season in this league, will compete in the B League of Nations.
