Euro 2004 Football - Croatia

Founded 1991  Fifa 1992Croatia football Euro 2004

Prospects for the European Football Championship 2004

Rather like the fallen Russian empire, the former Yugoslavian football team has suffered from its empire being splintered into satellite teams.  Even though Croatia is probably the best side in the Balkans, they have been struggling to keep up with the top 10 countries.

Perhaps Croatia lack the fire power to overcome England in Group B.  However, I think they may spring a surprise against France.

Previous qualifications: None - But Remember Yugoslavia were a powerful team.
