  1. Croatia all the dump out el tri. :) Croatia comes back from bad call in first match to advance. CRO 3/ el tri 1. Take it to the bank.

    Sorry el tri the USA can not save your bacon this time like we did in qualification remember. :)

  2. Come on you Croats one half left to get that ticket to the next round. Rafa is a hatchet man plan and simple. He had no intention of playing the ball his intention was to play Modric’s head dirty play.

    1. Modric hardly recognizable with that haircut. Seems to be a bit of Samson-itis too, as hes been a shadow of himself.

      1. The Eastern Europeans nations will one day catch up. The talent is there. Each tournament i think it will be the one. Bosnia got robbed, Croatia kinda did too but majorly disappointed also.

  3. And that’s how a nation who didn’t deserve to qualify sadly gets into the R16. Netherlands, have fun with them.
