Has Croatia ever won the World Cup?

Croatia players toasted their World Cup quarter-final victory over Russian Federation on Saturday evening by singing patriotic songs on the team bus home and back at their hotel.

Croatia's 3-0 win over Argentina in the group stage was a clear signal that the team led by midfield maestro Luka Modric was a real threat with their clever passing and movement.

Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic is excited to see playing at his best for the Vatreni in his last appearance at the FIFA World Cup.

Nicknamed "the Fiery Ones", that team has stood as an example to their successors ever since.

Henderson takes "a lot of good things from the past in terms of 66 and what they achieved then" but is not getting ahead of himself given the threat posed by Croatia. "We feel much easier at this point and we are enjoying what is happening", Mandzukic said.

"Once in a lifetime ― Modric's "Fiery Ones" fight for World Cup final!" read the Sportske Novosti daily front page. "Why didn't you ask me about when I played well against him? Hopefully, they can get that one step further and get to the final and bring the Cup home", he said.

Gareth Southgate's men have ripped up the script over a remarkable a month that now sees them preparing for a semi-final clash against Croatia.

"We've been always returning to the 1998 team. putting a new burden on Modric and his team". "So we should not be surprised that Croatia are in the semi-finals given the quality of the players".

Squares have been packed with red-and-white painted fans, stalls selling football jerseys and flares, and drivers blaring their horns in scenes reminiscent of 1998. "We're looking forward to the future", said Young.

"We have nice memories from France, our players did a great job".

England have one of the most underrated team in the country's recent history, and have yet managed to outdo all the illustrious heroes of the past twenty years. With France taking on Belgium and Croatia taking on the English, the best moments might be yet to come. The whole squad, even people who aren't here that have chipped in for us to be in this situation now.

The Croatian national football team has a fan unlike any other in the country's first female president.

Former worldwide Mario Stanic remembers perfectly the defeat to eventual winners France in the 1998 semi-final, although he would rather not.

But Stanic said he did not want to compare his team with the current one.
