Facts :
Croatia's FIFA World Cup experience so far has been short but very sweet. On their first attempt, they qualified for the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France, where they left an indelible impression.
In the quarter-finals Croatia defeated Germany, and an early goal by Davor Suker put them ahead against the hosts and eventual champions France in their semi-final tie. But Lilian Thuram's two goals for France ended the dream of reaching a World Cup final, and in the dying moments, Croatia failed to capitalise when France went a man down for the last 15 minutes of the game.
Four years later Croatia qualified again but were unable to repeat their 1998 success. They followed an opening defeat by Mexico with a win against Italy but lost to Ecuador and failed to reach the last sixteen.
