The star player scored a goal and produced a stunning assist, while forward Julian Alvarez struck two goals Croatia faced a tough time making a comeback after going 2-0 up at the halftime break.
Apparently, Croatia was struggling to defend the charged Argentine players. Croatia earlier stunned Brazil on penalties, attempted to attack in the second half but their neat passing failed to open any cracks in an Argentine defence.
Later, Argentina doubled their lead when, after a break from a corner, Alvarez started a long dribble goalwards and slipped the ball to send the heavily Argentine crowd into a frenzy.
Argentina will now lock horns for the final game with either France or Morocco, as Messi led team is looking to land a third-world crown after 1986.
