Croatia celebrates on of the greatest successes in its sports history - the second place at the FIFA World Cup Tournament in Moscow. We mention the deserving players: Mandžukić, Rebić, Modrić, Perišić, Rakitić, Brozović, Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Strinić, and the deserving coach Dalić. We believe that the Croatian team has shown the most attractive football play during the World Cup tournament. It is no surprise that Luka Modrić (on the photo) has won the prestigious Golden Ball - Balon d'or. Luka Modrić shares his second name with Professor Paul L. Modrich, USA, 2015 Nobel prize winner Chemistry, who has Croatian roots. We also add a lovely story about the most famous photographer at the moment, thanks to the goal od Croatia.
» Croatia and France in the final of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Moscow
This is the greatest succes of Croatian football in history, surpassing the third place of Croatian soccer team in 1998 during the FIFA World Cup in France. We recall the names of Davor Šuker, Zvonimir Boban and Slaven Bilić from 1998, and the names of Luka Modrić, Ivan Rakitić and Dejan Lovren in 2018. Before arriving to the final match, Croatian won in matches with very strong teams: England, Russian Federation, Denmark, Argentina and Nigeria. Furthermore, we indicate in this article some very interesting historical and cultural contacts between Croatia and France. On the photo Domagoj Vida immediately after the match with England, with his kids and the kids of Ivan Perišić.

Croatian win in the semifinal match with England at the FIFA World Cup 2018 has shown that the claim that Croatia is a small country is ridiculous. Croatia was for the first time recognized by the Roman Pope already in the 9th century, or more precisely, in 879. Rugjer Bošković (Ruggero Boscovich, on the photo), distinguished Croatian polymath and Jesuit from the 18th century, predicted the existence of nuclear forces almost two centuries before their discovery. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society and the greatest acclaim of this scholar came from England and France.

In 2007, Croatia has won 3 - 2 in a soccer match with England in London at Wembley, in a qualification match for European championships. Due to this win, Russia was placed second in the group, just after Croatia, while England was placed the third. As Slaven Bilić, Croatian coach at that time, explained, the Croatian team was at that time simply better than the English team. How strong various soccer teams are today has been shown by Iceland, by winning in a match with England at EURO 2016. On the photo Dr. Kathy Wilkes, Oxford, distinguished English humanist, who spent very turbulent years 1991 and 1992 in Dubrovnik, Croatia. We owe her our eternal gratitude. When she died in 2003, according to her wish she was burried in Croatia.

Croatia has won in a dramatic soccer match with Russian Federation, which was the host country of the FIFA World Cup Tournament 2018. On the photo Luka Modrić, captain of Croatian team. We indicate several very interesting historical and cultural contacts with Russia.

On that occasion, Russian fans activated a web site called Thank You Croatia! - Spasibo Horvatiya!.

Croatia has won in a dramatic soccer match with Denmark to the quarter-finals of the World Coup 2018 tournament. Ejnar Dyggve (1887-1961), distinguished Danish historian and archaeologist (on the photo), is important for his scholarly studies of the history of the southern parts of Croatia, in particular of the region of Split. A well known cartoon movie figure Professor Balthazar is very popular in Scandinavia, including Denmar. We also mention Karin Michaelis, who wrote an article in Danish about Croatian politician and martyr Stjepan Radić, who was assassinated in the Belgrade Parliament in 1928.

One of the most influential players in European, international and NBA basketball, Toni Kukoc is being honored with induction to the FIBA Hall of Fame in 2017. The 6ft 10in (2.08m) forward left his mark everywhere he played thanks to his exciting style and a leadership quality that resulted in numerous titles at both the club and national team levels. A native of Split, Croatia, he grew up playing at Jugoplastika where he developed his game into one that would inspire generations of players to come. He was a long and lanky point power forward with exceptional court vision and passing skills. He could also run the floor, finish and shoot well from outside.
» Luka Krilic: DIJASPORA Kuda idemo? Što možemo učiniti?
Kao pripadnik Dijaspore osjećam dužnost izraziti nekoliko misli o tome da je došlo vrijeme da mi iz Dijaspore pođemo ususret realnosti; moramo se suočiti sa golom istinom i sagledati stvarnost baš onakvom kakva ona jest, jer nalazim da je prijeka potreba i nužnost da pokušamo naći pravilan i dobar smjer koji smo, prema mome iskustvu i saznanjima, odavno izgubili. Ako je Država u krizi moramo priznati da to vrijedi i za nas. Vjerujem da svi jako dobro pamtimo ono što su nas učili o tome da se prvi masovni val iseljavljanja iz Dalmacije dogodio još potkraj XIX stoljeća kao posljedica bolesti vinove loze... Ono što nas nisu učili... jesu Komercijalni ugovori koje je potpisao Beč sa Italijom.

On the photo Zlatko Dalić, coach of Croatian national soccer team, which won in a match with Iceland 2 - 1. Zlatko was born in the city of Livno in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and now lives in Croatia. Iceland was among the first countries which diplomatically recognized Croatia, on 19th December 1991. An interesting connection between Croatia and Iceland is the fact that Ivica Kostelić is married with Elin Arnarsdottir from Iceland. In Croatia's capital Zagreb there is a street named after Iceland (Islandska ulica), about 700 m of length.
» 1139 years since the international recognition of Croatia and 26 years since its diplomatic recognition
By Nenad N. Bach and Darko Žubrinić | Published 06/26/2018 | Science , History , Education | Unrated
In the 9th century, more specifically, in 879 AD, Croatia obtained its first international recognition when Pope John VIII sent his letters to Croatian prince Branimir, in which he blessed him and his Croatian people. Croatia never lost its state continuity, even when it was a part of other empires, kingdoms and states. For example, Croatian Deit (Sabor) is one of the oldest in Europe, and in this sense, Croatia is one of the oldest states in Europe. Its diplomatic recognition was realized in 1992, under dramatic circumstances of Serbian and Montenegrin military aggression on Croatia.
