There are a lot of Croatians on this board. TMike, Hoppster, MCSam, Commish, UP, NC Titan, & RBJ1, just to name a few. Yo’ll must be so proud that the CROs are in the WC Semis!!

I'm Irish and French Canadian, but I did root for the Croats to beat the Ruskies.

I'm Ukrainian but I was still pulling for Russia. Croatia did have the better team but I liked the overachievement of the Russian side. My only connection to Croatia was that over the years I hired quite a few coaches out of that region.

I work at sterling heights high.. so despite being French Canadian and Irish... I adopted CRO because I have so many players from the former Yugoslavia. I am a hardcore Belgian soccer fan have been since 2012, Really hoping for Bel-Cro final.

France vs England is the match I want to see. Napoleonic war rematch.

I think we have watched some fantastic games so far. I like the Belgian side very much and at this point they are my favorite to win it all. They play hard and well as a team. I am happy to see the Southern and Central American teams gone. I get real tired of the diving and have been disappointed it has only been carded twice. Over all a great World Cup and wonderful ambassador for Soccer.

I’m half Croatian and I have watched nearly every game the national team has played the past 20 years. In fact, the only two sports teams I follow are the Titans and Vatreni. Glad to hear there are so many others on this board rooting for the guys in checkers.

How many goals does it take to get free pizza?

Would soccer seem more exciting if every goal was seven points?

Croatia has been the strongest of the two finalists. A few bad breaks have hurt them but they are getting good chances. France has gotten the ball in the box 5 times and has 2 goals. A self goal and a penalty. I am pulling for Croatia.

Soccer can be such a cruel game. If you’re Croatian I guess you can’t be too upset right now. We escaped death via PKs a couple times in this tourney. We played much better than the 4-2 final score suggests. Tough to lose today but ultimately this Cup will be remembered by Croatians and the diaspora as historic and prideful.

If you are Croatian, consider this inspiration to visit the homeland, embrace your heritage and pump some money into the economy.

Titans need to recruit a Croatian player. Plenty of athletic HS guys who got too tall for soccer and have been playing quality basketball. Most speak good English and a Jesuit based education in the US would be a golden ticket. If Valpo could land Skara then certainly we could scoop up someone as good. Plus, I hear we have a few open scholarships....
