Croatia is quite surprising, aren't they?

They've been underdogs in quite a few matches, but always seem to find a way to pull out a win! They're also the second-smallest country (population) ever to get into the WC Final since Uruguay! France better take notice, and not take these guys for granted!

It's really amazing the talent that comes out of their country with the size of it. Looking at their squad, if you follow the top 5 leagues, you see those names and you're thinking "damn, they're actually stacked". They don't have a Messi, Ronaldo or Icardi, but they have basically an all-star squad. I'm an Inter Milan fan and love Perišić and Brozović. Perišić is a boss that hasn't gotten the credit he deserves outside of Serie A. I don't watch Bundesliga like I do Serie A, but when I do, I watch Eintracht since my family (before I was born) briefly lived in Frankfurt, and Rebić is playing out of his mind in World Cup. He's good at Eintracht, but I feel like he's taken it up a notch for World Cup. Then you have Rakitić who's a world class bad ass, Modrić, another house name, then you Vida playing out of his mind. I think they got a great shot at being France. I hope they win and even if I didn't, I wouldn't bet against them!
