Croatia is a favourite to win the World Cup trophy this year, said retired football coach Miroslav Blazevic, best known for taking the Croatian national team to the semi-finals and winning the third place at the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France.
In his opinion, Croatia stands a good chance against Argentina in their upcoming game. “Croatia has a well-balanced team in all positions, which is not the case with Argentina,” he concluded.
And the former coach isn’t the only one backing Croatia, the BBC pundit Alan Shearer said that Croatia were his dark horses to win the 2018 World Cup. “They have an very skilful and experienced midfield,” added Shearer on BBC radio.
