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.
- The only player to have scored for two countries in the World Cup is Robert Prosinecki who represented Yugoslavia in 1990 scoring against the United Arab Emirates, and for Croatia in 1998 scoring against Jamaica.
