Croatia is on the brink of qualifying for the European Championship. Two years ago, they defeated Russia in a rainy match at Poljud and qualified for the World Cup in Qatar. Two years earlier, they won against Slovakia in Rujevica and claimed the Euro title. Tonight, at 8:45 p.m., Vatreni will play a crucial match to secure their spot in Germany’s Euros.
If Croatia wins, they will earn a visa to compete in the tournament. Even if they draw, as long as Wales’ result matches that of Turkey’s, they can still qualify. But what makes this match even more significant is that it could determine first place in the group if Croatia beats Armenia and Wales defeats Turkey.
The stage is set at Maksimir Stadium, where more than 20 thousand fans are expected to witness Luka Modrić’s potential final game at home. As always, we ask our readers what they think the outcome will be – will Croatia celebrate lightly or can Armenia pull off an upset?
