The first FIFA World Cup was held in 1930. Since that year, the world is infected with a fever called football. Football is not only a game played by two teams of eleven people, where each team tries to win by hitting the ball to the goal of the second team, it is more than a game.
It does not matter which color is your skin or which nation your team belongs to. The only thing that counts is fair play, respect for fellow athletes and to win. Players from all over the world get the same opportunity in proving their skills and abilities that may lead them to win the game.
According to the President of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach: “Sport is truly the only area of human existence which has achieved universal law.” Sport is a language that everyone understands. You don’t need a common language, just a shared love for a sport and respect for one another.
The shared love for a sport and the team that represents our nation gathers all fans, regardless of whether you follow the gameplay from the stadium or in the front of the small screens on other parts of the world. These are the moments when we all breathe like one, and our hearts beat harder.
This year Croatian national football team has presented some of the most exciting moments on the World Cup to talk about, but also give the best results in the history of Croatian football, making us very proud fans. We watched every game of our national team with pride, and we will support our team until the end of the championship. May the best team win!
Special thanks to Amodo hardcore football fans! And GO CROATIA!
