Croatia’s Glory in 2018 World Cup Since 1950

By db-admin

DBasia.newsNo wonder that the 2018 World Cup is nominated as the most dramatic tournament throughout the history. In Russia, the world witnessed the unexpected and surprising result.

Top teams were going home early; even the previous champion didn’t qualify from the group phase. So it’s reasonable that during the final later, we will see the performance of the underdog team.

For the first time, Croatia performed to the final round of World Cup. It opens the opportunity to be the new champion in World Cup, like what always happens every 20 years.

Croatia’s step to the final round was also a historical moment in the World Cup. Croatia, with less than 4.2 million people, is the smallest country performing in the World Cup since 1950.

During the 1950 World Cup in Brasil, Uruguay with 2,4 million people performed in final. Uruguay almost defeated Brasil in Maracana Stadium, witnessed by 200 thousand spectators, supporting Brasil.

Uruguay’s victory, known as Maracanazo, is known as the biggest surprise of all time.

Now, Croatia has the chance to make a history during the final round. They have the opportunity to be the new champion or the ninth country to be the world champion.

But to achieve that, Croatia has to defeat France, a country with 62 million people, much more than theirs, during the match in Luzhniki Stadium (15/7).
