About Croatia Football Team

According to Wikipedia, The Croatia national football team (Croatian: Hrvatska nogometna reprezentacija) represents Croatia in men’s international football matches and is controlled by the Croatian Football Federation (HNS). The team was recognized by both FIFA and UEFA following the dissolution of Yugoslavia. Sides were active during periods of political upheaval, representing sovereign entities such as the Banovina of Croatia from 1939 to 1941 or the Independent State of Croatia from 1941 to 1944.

The modern-day team has played competitive matches since 1994 starting with the qualifying campaign for the UEFA Euro 1996. In 1998, they competed in their first FIFA World Cup, finishing third place and providing the tournament’s top scorer, Davor Šuker. Twenty years later, Croatia reached the 2018 World Cup Final, providing the tournament’s best player, Luka Modrić. They are one of the youngest national teams (since formation) to reach the knockout stage of a major tournament as well as the youngest team to occupy the top 10 in the FIFA World Ranking.

The team represents the second-smallest country by population and land mass to reach a World Cup finals, behind Uruguay and Netherlands respectively. At the major tournaments, Croatia holds joint records for the longest period between one goal and another of a player (2002–2014), most penalty shoot-outs played, most extra time period played, and most penalties saved in a match. They are also one of three teams—along with Colombia and France—to be named FIFA Best Mover of the Year more than once, winning the awards in 1994 and 1998. Upon admission to FIFA, Croatia was ranked 125th in the world; following the 1998 World Cup campaign, the side rose to third place in the ranking, making it the most volatile team in FIFA Ranking history.
