Croats laid on a spectacular welcome-home party for the Croatian national team after its 4-2 loss in the final of the World Cup in Russian Federation - the furthest Croatia has ever got in the global soccer tournament. From June 14 to July 15, 32 teams from across the world played a totally of 64 matches in order to determine the best football team.

The unfortunate Mario Mandzukic opened the scoring with an own goal, but finished things off with a strike at the right end.

Kolinda was one of the eye-catching personalities in the just concluded World Cup tournament in Russian Federation. But that did not last long as a penalty gave France the lead and then MPabbe and Paul Pogba got on the scoresheet. "It is a shame because I think we were very, very good and deserved to win", said Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitic.
