All about the Croatia Team at Football World Cup 2018

Perhaps not traditionally considered as one of the great footballing nations in the world, the Croatian national team has certainly established itself in recent years as one of the 'ones to watch' in the world of football, with superstar players emerging, like, for example, Luka Modric of Real Madrid and Ivan Rakitic, of Barcelona, amongst many other players who compete competitively in some of the worlds best leagues. The national team has, strictly speaking, only been around since 1990, as before, it was part of Yugoslavia, before becoming independent. Since then, this 'new' team has only failed to qualify for one world cup, in 2010 and one European championship, in 2000.
