What is Croatia’s World Cup record?
Croatia have qualified for all but one World Cup tournament since their independence in 2010, and their appearances are conditioned by their exceptional results: third place at France 1998, which made them the best debutants ranked since Eusebio’s Portugal in 1996, and finalist of Russia 2018.
Modric was awarded the Ballon d’Or for the tournament’s best player, his performance in Russia contributing to his Ballon d’Or win later that year.
Croatia are currently 50/1 to win the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
