Croatia have always been undermined and disrespected, but as always they let their players talk on the pitch. Champion mentality of the Croats 🇭🇷
They only become relevant worldwide during a football world cup and that's not a bad thing. 🇭🇷🇭🇷🇭🇷
Croatia completely outplayed Canada, well played
Croatia took it personally.
Canadian coach too it personally, like a girl
@M. Abu yousef apparently many people because ive seen comments and talked to a bunch of people calling us sensitive and insecure lmao. must be a balkan thing, i thought it was normal.
That Kova performance was with him on one knee too. Shame he’s been injury prone the last couple years
Marko Livaja GOAT 🇭🇷💪🏻🦁🦁🦁
A good learning experience for the next WC. Regardless of additional motivation, Croatia are just too good for Canada to beat them.
Their midfield took control after about 30 min and from then on it was over for Canada.
A lot of media guys disrespected Croatia, they might be older but they finished second at 2018, at the Euro they lost to Spain in extra time, and in the recent nations league the won the group with France,Denmark and Austria(losing only to Austria - 4W1D1L record) and suddenly everyone thought Canada will qualify instead of them.Canada did better then expected so far and they have good team to build around for the next world cup.
well, if Croatia is older then Canada is too. People don't realize but the average age of both teams is pretty similar
Narrative that Canada is young and Croatia aging and too old it's not really true and dont make much sense.
@Capl Uio I meant Croatia team is older compared to their previous team (16euro18WC 20euro).Also their players have MUCH MORE GAMES played in their careers compared to Canada players.Age is not the only indicator.
@Viktor Iliev then you talking about experience not age. Lack of experience does not make Canada a young team. They are still old . I'm too lazy to check, but I'm pretty sure Croatia was older in 2018 and 2021 than it is now.
@Capl Uio I checked it.27.3 now to 27.9 at 2018WC. 26.9 for Canada now.
winning mentality vs losing mentality
it showed in the end
We played very naively after taking the lead, we played right into Croatia's hands, carrying the ball forward slowly and trying to play a possession game, and letting them strike on the counterattack... too bad we couldn't get a result against Belgium, but as a Canadian, at the start of this qualifying cycle, I honestly would have been happy with just getting into the final Concacaf qualifying round, so I really can't complain...
Wearing the moroccan jersey .... yayyyyy
Croatia 🇭🇷 and Morocco 🇲🇦 to advance. 👏
Kramaric never said that after the game lol
Go Croatia 🇭🇷🎀🇭🇷
Waiting for Ghana match analysis 😁
Perhaps they listened to you guys too much when you were all blowing smoke up their hineys 😉 I mean seriously... every espn fc analyst absolutely *gushed* over Canada over their first game... one they lost.
Tbf they didn’t deserve to lose that game a draw would’ve been fair but against an experienced team yh they had no chance, Belgium are way past it as shown against morocco
@B H footie is a cruel game.
@B H No. Cry.
@B H Right, in Canada everyone deserves to be a winner, cause sharing is caring LOL
Canada did fine when you look at all of the contributing factors, including the "super-rich planted official" in game one. They scored on Croatia which is in-of-itself awesome. No...they were never going to win this game against Croatia but who actually thought they would....honestly? You sound like you were worried they might. Croatia TIED Monaco! Don't count your chickens...
Thanks for wearing our jersey!🇲🇦
Never say always...national pride is not connected to sports decisions. God could care less. He is more interested in your heart and soul for others.
Loving the shirt Juls🇲🇦
I played for a Croatian football team in my day. Agree; worst thing to do. Weird, but if we went 1-0 down early, we usually responded with at least 3 goals...
See you in 2026 Croatia! would be nice to keep this "rivalry" up
Rivalry is between the rivals. Canada didn't grow to this status yet.
Canada can’t have a rivalry with Croatia. That would imply they are in the same league. Which they are not
It would be cool if they played each other then. I would be surprised if their coach would reiterate a disrespectful comment to the media again.... there are players in the Croatian team that have achieved more than in Canada's entire soccer federation's history.
You would have to actually make it on a regular enough basis to at least chance a head to head. Since money hungry FIFA did you the favour of expanding the competition, you now have no excuses in that regard. As for a rivalry, take a ticket and get in line.
Rivalry is between two adversaries of the proper level. Like Croatia and England or France.
Where have you Canadians been for the past 40 years? Croatia has qualified for almost every major cup since its independence.
He didnt mean it LIKE THAT.... it was tipical hype...
Thanks for this bonding ...better lucky next time (Y)
Croatia loves Canad a... so many Croats live there...omg
Cheers for your gracious comment... Croatians have made wonderful contributions to Canada.
well said. Greets from Cro
Alphonso Davies the best player on the pitch.
maybe on twitch but certainly not on football pitch.. get fd
Maybe whose skin is the color of pitch.
ah cry canadian u know kramarić ouplayed u guys so hard
Maybe first 2 minutes...
The Moroccan jersey looks good on you
Gab knows nothing about soccer, he picked Belgium and Canada to advance, who both now sit bottom of the group
Herdman lost it
Bahahahahaha 😆 🤣 😂
Typical Brits jk
get over the comment by John Herdman... are you serious that this would change anything that Croatia would have done... this is just Canada bashing. grow up
rookie coach rookie move
we have fantastic players we can do better with a more composed coach
Sounds like someone’s hurt 😢
This aint Concacaf - Canada just isnt that good. Having said that. They would probably have gotten out of USA's group.
