Croatia transformed from zero to hero

The Three Lions underestimated Hrvatskan and it backfired


With only five appearances in the FIFA Would Cup, Croatia managed to outsmart England in a semi-final match that ended by 2-1 in Russia, Moscow.

England appeared for 15 times in world and have only won it once in 1966 up against Germany.

Croatian captain, Luka Modric who led his country to its first ever world cup final said England should been more humble and respect their opponents.

“They underestimated Croatia tonight and that was a huge mistake. All these words from them we take, we were reading and we were saying: ‘OK, today we will see who will be tired,” He said.

Modric was not happy with some of the things that the English media said and written about them before the match.

However, England coach Gareth Southgate was polite after the game and he gave credits to Croatia.

“They have come through three huge ties, they have got some outstanding individual players and a great collective spirit,” Southgate said.

Croatia is set to play the World Cup final match with France on Sunday, July 15.
