|Croatia World Cup 2018 squad and team guide as Real Madrid star Luka Modric is key man
| ลิ้ ง sbo A team which can often strike a chord for the neutral just purely by their famous red and white checkered shirts, the Croatians are more than capable of proving they have plenty of substance to go hand-in-hand with their dashing look. Along with that, memories of Davor Suker’s heroics at France 1998 ring true and anywhere near a repeat of their famous third-place finish this time around would supersede any dream.
More recent efforts, though, haven’t returned much with group stage eliminations in their past three finals appearances since then in 2002, 2006 and 2014. But, the fact there’s little hype about this side could prove to a blessing.
Croatia were forced to work hard for a runners-up spot (to Iceland) in Qualifying Group I before a comprehensive second-round two-legged victory over Greece to seal their berth in Russia. They have been far from convincing but are still dining where it counts at the top table. Again, this summer, the Croats will go up against Iceland in Group D – a team they beat at home but lost to away in qualifying. ลิ้ ง sbo
Meanwhile, Super Eagles Nigeria can always turn it on when the eyes of the world are watching, and then, of course, Argentina make up their group, having a certain man in their ranks we all know about. A big plus for Zlatko Dalic’s team is that they have a rigid defence led by Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren and plenty of dynamism and playmaking ability in midfield, where captain and Real Madrid superstar Luka Modric runs the show.
Inter Milan duo Ivan Perisic and Marcelo Brozovic, as well as Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic, add much-needed experience and legs around Modric. Mateo Kovacic has had another tough season at the Bernabeu but is set to start. At the top end of the pitch, goals are an issue, with the Blazers managing just 15 in qualifying, the second-lowest after Ireland among the top two teams from each of the qualifying groups. ลิ้ ง sbo
