Fun Facts: Croatia national football team

With England through to the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1990, we take a look at their forthcoming opponents, Croatia.

Croatia slaughtered all of its opponents at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Their latest victim was Russia, the host. Croatia managed to send them home after a nerve-wrecking penalties shootout.

Croatia's next match is semi-finals game against England, that is set for Wednesday, July 11.

Nicknamed Vatreni (The Blazers) Croatia national team is led by head coach Zlatko Dalic, and captain Luka Modric. Modric is Real Madrid's star player, and this 32-year-old can lead his team to the World Cup title.

Croatia is currently on the 20th place of FIFA ranking, and their best placement was in 1999, when they were at the 3rd place.

Croatia's current play will surely move them up on a ladder, whether they win over England.
