Croatia players celebrate following their sides victory in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Quarter Final match between Russia and Croatia at Fisht Stadium on July 7, 2018 in Sochi, Russia.

Meet the Team: CROATIA!

Now that squads have been announced, we can look more closely into the hotness of the individual teams. I mean, that’s what we’re here for, right? For each team, I’ll talk a bit about the squad, then highlight ten hotties (trying to be attentive to many types of hotness), doing my best to split them evenly amongst the field.

Today: CROATIA!

Croatia is everyone’s favorite dark horse candidate…and with names on the team roster like Modric, Rakitic, Kovacic, Mandzukic, and Perisic, it’s not hard to see why. However, while the starting 11 has a ton of talent and experience, the bench is a little young. Will this provide much needed energy or will the lack of experience rear its head?

(considering what happened Thursday, clearly whatever they’re doing is working)

“Maybe of even bigger importance than the silver medal, was that we regained our fans, showed Croatian pride, Croatian defiance, Croatian dignity.”
