Croatia is still riding on a high since their final appearance in Russia 2018. They took the tournament by storm, reaching the finals against France but ultimately being outdone. Croatia hasn’t been an independent nation for too long. But they have done quite well given their short span of time. They have qualified for six tournaments out of a possible 7, with their best finish coming in Russia in 2018.
Their record at the euros cannot be looked at in prominence, as they never really challenged for the title, finishing in the quarter-finals, the best they have been able to manage so far. But at the present moment, they are on a really good run, having lost just once in their last eight games this calendar year, winning their last four, beating France in Paris on their way to the nations league finals in the process of being held in 2023. They have many players retiring, but they also have young blood coming through to fill in the gaps.
Croatia Team FIFA World Cup Kits
The revolution that has been seen in kits will only continue, as fans from around the globe like kits that are good-looking and want to wear them to different places like pubs and cafes and when they want to have a kick about with their friends.
Nike is the kit manufacturer for Croatia, and the emblem of the Croatian FA is on the opposite side of the Nike logo. This is the case for both sets of jerseys. Croatia has been using two different variations of kits. It seems like they will be following suit for Qatar 2022 as well, with their first kit being a combination of red and white and the second kit being different shades of blue.
The first kit follows the pattern, although with a different design when compared to the previous kits. The kit has haphazard red squares on a white base all around the jersey, with space left in the centre of the top region of the chest area for the emblem as well as the logo. It looks quite decent, but it lacks innovation.
The second kit is predominantly a darker shade of cobalt, with light blue squares at the top area giving the kit a 3D effect, but it does not seem to have worked out. The emblem and the logo are on the sides of the kit this time.
