The scoreless draws continued in the World Cup group stage on Wednesday with Croatia and Morocco failing to find the back of the nets at Al Bayt Stadium. Former United States men’s national team players Jimmy Conrad and Sacha Kljestan give their takeaways from “World Cup Now.”

1. The key players didn’t get it done

Hayim Ziyech coming off of that right side didn’t have a great game, had a few turnovers early in the match, wasn’t really overly dangerous creating chances or getting shots off himself. Luka Modrić was fine. He played in the midfield but he wasn’t his usual buzzing-around self, making plays on both sides. I saw him drop in deep a little bit and try to get in on the ball a lot more often deep. I’d like to see him more box-to-box, closer to the goal and setting up plays in the final third.

2. Josko Gvardiol is worth the hype

I thought he was excellent. He’s 20 years old and just so cool and calm for his age. Now I know why Chelsea wanted to buy him for $90 million this past summer. I wasn’t doing that at 20. I was playing a lot of video games and hanging out with my friends, not being courted by one of the biggest clubs in England. I’m very curious about his future but I think he showed maturity beyond his years and I think he’s going to be one of the breakout stars of this tournament so keep your eye on him.
