France at this World Cup appeared a strong, balanced and confident team, able to produce the desired result. “Three-color” was not afraid of favorites, they did everything that was necessary for the victory, and also correctly performed the trainer’s settings. Hence the result.
At this World Cup there were a lot of sensations, but Croatia became the main one. For the first time in the history of football, the team from the Balkan Peninsula climbed so high.
Croatia showed itself well at the previous European Championships, having managed to beat Spain. But few could have guessed that the “checkers” had achieved such stunning results at the World Cup. In the qualification to mundialyu Croats did not even win the group, losing to the first line of Iceland. However, now it is very few people cares. As for the Euro in France, Zlatko Dalic perfectly prepared his players to the decisive matches.
