World Cup: Croatia Give Themselves a Fighting Chance

Updated on June 19, 2014

Croatia's First Game

Croatia's first game against Brazil may not have gone the way the form book predicted. Brazil did manage to defeat them in the end after a few suspect decisions by the ref.

They may have had a little help to score their only allowed goal of that game. If the correct decisions were given it could have been a completely different outcome.

They showed class and skill and that they can take the game to the best of them.

Coratia's Second Game

Croatia made light work of Cameroon by thrashing them 4-0 in Manaus. Although the Goals make it look like a one sided match the teams matched each other for possession.

Both teams had chances on goal but Croatia were the only team that was able to convert.

Croatia showed that they have class and are definitely capable of winning big important games. They have given themselves and their fans hope.

Croatia's Third Game

Croatia have one more game to play before they can progress and they need to win it.

Their final match is against Mexico who beat Cameroon in their first match and held Brazil to a draw. It will be a tough game for both teams and both of them need to win to progress.

If Croatia are to win they will need to play as well if not better that they have so far. They will need to defend well.
