Croatia has a new football superhero – Batman

Written by  Dec 02, 2022

After the match between Croatia and Belgium, FIFA summed up perfectly the contribution of Croatian defender Joško Guardiola on their social media, “Croatia’s Superhero.”

Thanks to Joško Guardiola's lightening reaction, Croatia placed second in the group in the round of 16 of the World Cup. Belgium need a win to progress into the knockout stages of the World Cup in Qatar and as the ball fell to striker Romeo Lukaku just a few metres from goal it looked like Croatia’s dream was over. However, Joško Guardiol had a different idea and from nowhere took the ball off the toe of Lukaku.

After the match, FIFA called him a Croatian superhero and added a Batman symbol to his image. And with his protective mask Croatia’s hero does bear more than a passing resemblance to Batman.
