Croatia are coming in at around the 30 – 1 odds mark when it comes to them lifting the World Cup. Betting hasn’t been too intensive on Croatia, so far anyway. This could all change once the first week of the World Cup tournament nears its end.
Croatia were favourites for their qualifiers in Europe but that isn’t the case in the World Cup, surprisingly. Though, when it comes technical ability and football style, Croatia could very well be topping their group.They’ve a good reputation in these tournaments, they’ve been gifted with quality players over the years and some of their current crop often shine when on the big stage.
A possible dark horse again? If there is to be one then our monies on them, with the right mentality they can overturn any team, let’s hope off-field distractions don’t envelop what could be a last chance for many of the team’s senior players.
