Croatia at the World Cup

In 1991, Yugoslavia split up and the independent countries of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, and Serbia-Montenegro were formed. Since that time, Croatia has been very successful at the World Cup, having qualified for the World Cup in 1998, 2003, 2006, 2014, 2018 and 2022.

In 2018, this nation of just over 4 million people, had their best tournament result ever, making the final for the first time and going down gallantly 4-2 to France.

In 2022, again Croatia upset higher ranked teams. Coratia beat tournament favourites Brazil in the round of 16, making a date with Argentina in the quarter final. They finished 3rd.
