Croatia National Football Team history
The modern Croatian football team was formed in 1990, after the country's founding and independence from Yugoslavia, and was officially recognised by world football's major bodies in 1993. Despite having a relatively short footballing history, Croatia have performed admirably on the international stage. The first international football tournament for Croatia was the European championship in England in 1996 and Croatia reached the Quarter-finals before losing to eventual champions Germany. Two years later, the Croatia National Football Team went one step further and reached the semi-finals of the Football World Cup, again losing to the eventual champions, this time France. However, 2018 is the most successful year so far in Croatia's footballing history. The team, led by manager Zlatko Dalic reached the Moscow final and have a chance to win the most coveted trophy in world football, and perhaps world sport.
