Croatia started today’s match with confidence. From where they left off with Turkey, the Croatians continued a menacing attack from every angle. In the 38th minute Ivan Perišić took his defender one on one down the left side, cut in, and slotted a beautiful goal into the side of the net to put Croatia up 1-0. Czechs had shown some glimpses of being able to find gaps in the Croatian defense, but nothing Subasic couldn’t handle.
As the second half started, Czech started to gain momentum. Controlling the ball, making Croatia defend, and getting off opportunities that made this game look like it was far from over. Just when the Czechs seemingly looked like they had control, their defense collapsed and allowed Ivan Rakitić put a beautiful chip over Peter Cech. A minute later, in the 60th minute, there was a stoppage in play and the camera scrolled to the players huddled around Modrić. Luka had picked up what looked to be a slight knock, and had to be taken out from the game.
Things began to spiral out of control 15 minutes later as Skoda, the Czech sub, flashed a headed ball by a sleepy Subašić. The Croatian keeper hadn’t been tested much all day, and he looked caught off guard as the ball came in at goal. The squad didn’t crumble, as they were able to handle the pressure, and sustain a dangerous attack in which Brozović almost put in Croatia’s 3rd. Then came the flairs, from what’s reported to be Torcida fans protesting Mamić and the Federation.
From that point forward, Croatian players lost all concentration. In the 89th minute, Clattenburg awarded a penalty kick to the Czech after Domagoj Vida inadvertently handled the ball while going up for a header in the box. The Czechs hammered in the penalty, tied the game, and almost staged an upset.
Final Thoughts: Whatever you think about the current situation in Croatia, I believe we can all agree this was the worst time to protest. With a team clinging onto a lead they stop the game, wreck the concentration of players, and essentially cost the team 2 points.
Update: UEFA is considering disqualifying Croatian & Luka Modrić has been ruled out for the game against Spain.
Their last game is Tuesday against reigning European champions Spain. That could very well be for first place in the group. CroatianSports.com will be in Bordeux for that match. Please send me an email at Ante@CroatianSports.com if you’re going to the game so we can all organize a place to meet.
UEFA decision postponed until tomorrow:
Even the Turkey match was full of complacency from this team. They think every team is San Marino? I also thought Brozovic and Badelj were pretty good midfielders before this tournament.
ante bbb becareful! i might put a wig on you…then fuck you bareback then you will have it..
some other retard posting under my name…
Just look at what TorontoCroatian says…typical idiot who is probably an adult who has more education in Tambura class than actual education. Such stupidity!!!
Sorry Ante B…I guess I didn’t mean that…I’m just so sick and tired and ashamed of being a shit disturber Croat for the rest of my life. Being a hrvat sucks because we have nothing, are nothing, our country is nothing and look at what we do… NOTHING. We brag about what we have because our parents tell us,,, but now that I’m somewhat an adult… And mindfully educated I’ve learned that we got shit all!!! Anyway…sorry for the same ol behaviour we Hrvats always portrait!!!
I might be a fag in your eyes but youre the one who is HIV so continue to fuck yourself, bitch
UEFA loves croatia its a cash cow…they are making $$$ from us. we are not getting kicked out…English, russian fans make us look tame lol..even turks are doing shit.
how is Modric doing? every hrvat should stand with mamic now…torcida and bbb are a bunch of goofs…if they have a problem with mamic go after him. fucking bunch of retards…there was that one fag Ante bbb posting…fuck him and his bbb!!!
“..na jednom transparentu je pisalo “Livno-Berlin”. E, kad su ih oni dohvatili. Zgazili su ih, satrali do bola. Ubili su boga u njima ….”.
I salute these guys. Oh how I would have loved to be in France to give a beating to these cocksucking scum causing all the problems.
I hope they get locked up in a French jail cell with a bunch of French african or Isis wannabes….they think twice about ever trying to throw a flare again…
from a fan
“Bili su to momci bez kockastih obilježja i likovi bez dresova, odjeveni uglavnom sive ili crne majice, Nisu gledali utakmicu, zujali si okolo i čekali moment da naprave nered. Nitko od tih koji su pravili sranja nije bio u dresu hrvatske reprezentacije…. Jednoga od njih čak znam, porijeklom je iz Čapljine…
Kad su počeli neredi, i kad smo shvatili što se događa, a bio sam dvadesetak metara od tih razbojnika, pravi navijači krenuli su na njih. Najbliže im je bila skupina hrvatskih navijači koji su imali kockaste zastave i natpise Livno. na jednom transparentu je pisalo “Livno-Berlin”. E, kad su ih oni dohvatili. Zgazili su ih, satrali do bola. Ubili su boga u njima ….
Ja sam inače vatreni navijač Hrvatske. Bio sam i u Italiji kad su napravili nered. Slično ponašanje kao i na ovoj utakmici.
bravo, tako treba
i was side tracked about all this hooligan shit, I forgot to say wtf was vida doing, what an idiot. Also I am actually pretty happy with most roster spots, badelj scares me.
Burn the torcida and bbb clubhouses to the ground. Buy film the fire being started by flares.
P.hukin scum all deserve to be shot.
Man fuck the fine, I’m worried about modric
My guess is another slap on the wrist. Fine and maybe another game behind closed doors which is a great thing at this point.
They can’t chuck us or even deduct points if u ask me when you’ve got Hungarians tuning French stewards in the aisles. It’s a new story of fan behavior and lack of security every day. And these Hungarians are their actual fans not just “sport terrorists” with ulterior motives. No way they just make an example of us and not all the others.
The biggest story in all of this is the lack of French security. A flare is the size of a forarm and there have been reports of very light pat downs and bags barely being checked. Pathetic!
No surprise really, the French have never been able to defend or protect anything. Boom!
If these protesters continue, we will continue to punish the real fans and fine the HNS, because like we say, the federations are responsible for their fans.
We will not punish the Mamic and Suker fans for not supporting the team.
Plans of another protest for #CROESP have been leaked on Facebook. Torcida, BBB, Armada and Ultras all involved.
Authorities will be all over it you would hope, but surely this will be on the mind of the players, coaches and real fans. Situation is not ideal.
Spoke to a*** Hrvat ***from Zagreb today. In Zagreb the general consensus is it was SDP who bankrolled and supported the losers that tossed the flares.
Man Google is typing for us… soon it will speak for us.
Then tyranny will reign supreme.
Ziva Istina threw a flare!
Croatia will be docked 3 points guranteed match with Spain
Will be must win we will lose on s late goal
The best government of a multitude is rule by one, and this is clear from the purpose of government, which is peace; for peace and the unity of his subjects are the purpose of the one who rules, and one is a better constituted cause of unity than many.
There can never be unity in democracy.
Once the hooligans are identified they should be reckoned!
Democratic socialism would have stopped the hooligans
I hope Fifa does not disqualify us or cost us Points in Worldcup qualifying, just like they hit the Serbs with a -3 points for Euro Qualifying.
Identify who you can throwing flares, Charge them with TREASON and deport them from Croatia. Just drive them to the border and drop them off, If they get caught in Croatia again its straight to a 30 year jail sentence or whatever the penalty is for treason in Croatia.
After all Treason is the crime of betraying one’s country.
If sabotaging the National team in front of the entire world is not treason then I don’t know what is.
I have the names of the people who threw the flares on my server, ooops accidentally deleted them
I don’t think you should give up.
I am not a communist Jew!
I would love to not have sexual relations with Donalds daughter!
Croatian fans should cop no punishment, we can’t condemn a whole fan base because of the actions of a few, if we do this the hooligans win.
Your wife and daughter are hot by the way.
Don’t let Muslims into the U.S.A.
Croatian fans go to watch a football match.
We don’t know which fans are hooligans, until they do something.
Once they do something they’re still called Croatian fans and supporters.
Now Croatian fans who did no hooliganing will not be able to go to any games for a while.
They will be punished for the acts of Croatian hooligans even though they are not hooligans?
Is every Muslim a terrorist? we can never be sure until they do something, I am going to follow UEFA’s lead and punish all Muslims. Muslims are ISIS supporters, how do I know this you may ask, because they are Muslim.
Football shows us the way!
I would add the word CORRECTLY before identify in your statement. That’s one hell of a start. Then, find out if they were involved with the swastika and who ultimately paid them. Should be a barn burner.
The only way to stop this is to identify the individual guys responsible, and send them to French prison on terrorist charges…
Definately. He’s the ring leader I’m telling you
Nice one Crnkovic!
He did say he would not be posting for a while. Maybe he figured they would see his picture and factored in the jail time too.
He is kaizer sauzee…
His angle is he was there throwing the flares. Isn’t that obvious by now? He disappears, says he’s going to France, doesn’t meet up with anyone though, and suddenly….
Where’s živa , wanted to hear his stupid I told you so comments, strange no comments from him, what’s his angle here????
He says nothing positive about those idiots, he just explains their motivations and says “their methods are all wrong”.
It’s possible to agree that Mamic is a crook (which he is) and also agree that these guys that threw flares are idiots and should be put in jail.
I can’t believe this shit is actually happening. Lmfao. Ziva please come back. Everything is falling apart
PS I hope the whole team comes out in water polo caps for the spain game, to support corluka. If he has to look ridiculous then we all will. Cacic will wear an inflatable beach ring around his waist. Ante coric will be in goal, and marko rog will play up front with an inflatable alen halilovic doll
Lol. Well that’s cleared that up guys. Spain game is going to be VERY interesting. We’ve got our hard luck story now. First captain srna is in tears his father passed away, then the hooligans. After such an impressive opening, against the Turks, we needed this so we can be underdogs again where we are comfortable. Will it work? That’s why we did it, because we are psychological geniuses and we know it is the best way to motivate the team to actually take their chances in front of goal
Stock advice: Buy a PUT on the third party security company at the Uefa finals.
One of you guys mentioned you think Croatian fans may have been holding these guys for the police. They probably were, but as Perisic said, the police/security were told to not go in the stands. How ridiculous?! Frogs!
Also, we feel that Croatia as a country has laid it’s foundation on football, that’s why we believe if destroy football we can start building anew.
Why do the French care? For them it’s better that a good team
Gets bounced out for crowd behavior. No one cares. We are a poor country. Russians killed people and they are still here.
So sad that word was out that shit was gonna go down, and they even said they knew when, yet it was still allowed to happen. My god, I feel like if I was suker I would’ve done something drastic to not allow this. Just telling the stupid fucking French security is not enough! Damnit!
OK, I need Ronaldo to do an Oleg Salenko.
Venezuela player misses penalty in embarrassing fashion.
Yo, Millwall props you guys are hard Oi!
I think I might try something at one of these games!
It’s good for us that the Hungarians had flares and were brawling the stewards. Hopefully there are flares at every match then the focus will lay on the lame French security.
We do this because, if there is no team we can’t be fans!
We don’t want to be fans.
Also, we hate Mamic because we envy his prosperity.
I know Holiga is persona non grata around here, but his latest is pretty much spot on:
He sounds like spokesperson for those idiots.
Half the teams in the Euro have had fans behaving badly. The Hungarians fought with Stewards. Russians killed people give me a break
I have a feeling that they will deduct a point like they did in qualifying, plus the usual monetary fine and empty stadium nonsense. If that’s the case, a loss to Spain would probably send Croatia home. And we can’t compare the English and Russian actions. They’ll never sanction the bigger countries. Croatia will always get screwed in the end.
We did it to impress some chicks back home.
Last couple of crnkovic comments not me. Must be the same guys who did the mess checking to see what the reaction is amongst us. Hey guys what ever you call yourself, just post here and explain your actions. Why you did it, and why you think it’s the right thing to do. Let’s listen to you guys. Come….
Magyars getting rough
Flares at plenty of other matches but ours ended up
On the field
From my readings….the original plan was much worse, flares were supposed to come from both ends while the referee was attacked
We are now being called sports terrorists. Also the casuals don’t sabatoge their own countries. This was cro-mafia!!
That being said, as Ante said above, there’s no way we can get a bad punishment give the Engerand and Russia fans
I mean, Engerand were warned not to do anything or they’d be kicked out, and the very next night 36 Engerishmen were arrested for cuntery.
So if they are okay, we’ll be okay, surely?
As for the team, yeah, bit of a crumble but nice to see attacking play for once.. WD Cro and we’ll see how we go next time.. i dont want to play belgium in the next round if possible
I remember my non Croatian friends always wondering what those stinky barrels in my garage where full of.
I don’t want to sound like Ziva, but damn it’s been too long since mama made us some sarma!
im pissed off with these cunts
What do you guys think is gonna happen on Monday? I hope they don’t kick us out…and what are our chances of advancing? I hope we make it through and beat some big team next round and maybe that could be a nice confidence booster after this bullshit that’s happening now
We made Drudge.
I get a call in September from parents back home
Sine go buy kupus it is da season
Walking out of superstore with nothing but 30 heads of cabbage and the looks u get is priceless
I hope we do not turn into a Serbia. They have world class players, and they don’t give a shit about the national team not because they do not have Serbian pride, they do. But the Serbian fans want to sabotage the national team cause they are mad at the Serbian FA.
Why do you think Vidic retired from the national team? Cause he was sick of picking up a microphone each game and pleading with their fans.
Remember the qualificatioms for euro 2012 when the Serbian traveling fans went to Italy and purposely canceled the match, they only played 15 mins of the match before the ref called it off.
And now we got our players saying they will understand if we get thrown out of the Euros.
I really hope we don’t turn into a Serbia ……
If you watch the video you will clearly see a guy in a blue shirt who is involved in the fighting pull out a Croatian jersey and pull it on over his own blue shirt. Then join the crowd of other fans.
These dudes are absolutely Croatian, all I was saying is that the guys are scum who show up to matches in their Terracewear (aka “hooligan casual”) cause trouble, throw on a jersey, and then bounce with the rest of the crowd.
I think what the Russians did to the English fans at the stadium was 100X worse. Women and children running for their lives as hundreds of russians charged the british. A slap on the wrist for Russia. Lets see what UEFA does to us on Monday.
Well fire has to be fought with fire. Start a crew to police these games. Could the Cro govt not send a team of police to arrest these people or is the gov so corrupt that some support this?
Hey! I resent that!
U can still ferment cabbage whilst living in a beautiful east Vancouver home.
Ok I guess my comment above was as typical stupidity as we Croatians are. We still think with the fermenting cabbage that brews everyday in our homes back in the village!!! Let’s admit it guys, let’s just stop these conversations, because the world agrees that Croatians are idiots!!
And no, someone didn’t put a Croatian jersey over their own shirt. We do this all the time!! Look at all our matches with Serbia, then recently with Italy. The list goes on and on. Gosh we are idiots for real!!
I think SDS means Za Dom sarma!!!!
My guess is that these guys are members of Hydra.
People wake up this was no protest these are yugos/ Serbs trying to ruin Croatia! How do you think they put the swastika in split it was all the Serbs at the time running hajduk they wanna tarnish our name! All the newspapers Serb ran all the media Serb ran! Mesic and milanovic’s has fucked us up so bad and no one is doing anything about it! Time to wake up! People in Croatia need to start waking up the diaspora needs to unite and help like this website the headline should be orijunasi sabotage Croatia game
Like I said it has to be on video and here they go
Govno! Veliko govno!! That’s who they are!!!
So who are they?
Udba trying to ruin Croatia
Torcida/BBB/Kohorta/ trying to oust Suker and/or Mamic?
If you watch the video on Reddit you’ll see some of these fuckers putting on Croatian jerseys over their shirts as they are walking up the stands to blend in and get away.
Some good videos and photos in here of people in the stands fighting back against the hooligans.
Ok easy to say from here
But if the good fans were fighting the shit disturbers
Why not trying to hold a couple back for the police?
Or maybe they did??
“You are who you roll with”
Agree brother on both your last posts.
@ Ante B
Haha..If they weren’t there their name will be cleared…video is everywhere and they will be found out.
The real question…what will be done about it?
Not sure if you guys have read the official HNS statement today…
All those named guys looks like class acts.
Throw the whole lot of them in jail. Don’t want to have your name associated with BS like what happend yesterday? Roll with a different crowd. There’s a reason their names are being brought into it.
@Brkic and Crobo
Just saw that, good for us cause so many fans acting up, cant really come down too hard. These guys are stashing the shit inside the stadiums weeks before the game working with other firms to get it done…. they need to take some dogs and sniff that shit out before these games start.
Fireworks and flares at the Iceland v Hungary game from the Hungarian fans. Not the same since they’re not on the field.
…still, amazing that the authorities can’t stop this…
3 flares and 6-7 firework explosions in the stands at the Hungary game.
Granted, it was in celebration of their goal. And they weren’t thrown onto the field. But still, what’s up with this security? Letting people smuggle in low grade explosives and incendiary devices?
haha we get it Ante b. were on the right track though, those dudes will have alibis stop being so worried about that.
Man if this fucker was infront of me and turned around and did that i would crack him right in his front 2 teeth. Video is emerging photos taken, most of these scum will be outed question is what punishment they will get.
In my best 30 for 30 announcer voice…
What if I told you…that some of the names listed are of guys who weren’t even in France?
Agreed, if your rolling around with these punks then your an accessory, if you are completely innocent your name will be cleared.
Jarac, yes ive read that but im talking about the years this has been going on. It is not up to the french to deal with this matter last minute, we had years to do so and we did not.
And about Holiga….his agenda seems pretty clear. I read some of his crap and can’t help but want to vomit. He’s doing anything to get attention…he’s revelling in this. Bad I’m just happy that he’s been dead wrong. He predicted we would crash out and finish last in our group…guess what…wrong. Shows how little he knows…bet he’s never touched a soccer ball in his life.
@ Jarac @ Ante B
From my perspective, if they question a few who maybe didn’t do it but are associated with these clowns then in my mind there really isn’t much difference. If they are completely innocent then they obviously don’t deserve to be dragged through he mud. Either way, it looks like the majority are correct.
These idiots need to be punished plain in simple. They are an embarrassment to all that it is to a Hrvat.
Anyone who reads Holiga is a moron!
Give that loser no attention people.
Might as well just get your footy news from some Serb sports site.
The croatian authorities knew about this and alerted french authorities, french decided not to do shit. They even knew down to the minute when it was gonna happen, thats why the french police set up infront of that section right before it happened.
Again, if concerned people can within 24 hrs start identifying these idiots why cant the croatian authorities who have so, especially when they have the coercive and investigatory rights to do much more? Why was nothing done until now? That is the scandal.
Scum who threw the flares are nothing but c***suckers.
Our definition of dead right differs because if you have some innocent names on there that to me means inaccurate. At that point were splitting hairs. You know what would be a good idea for someone with time? Put the faces on this website, no names, and see how CSR nation can help in identifying. I can take two names off that list immediately: Mario Corak and Robert Knezovic (decki, znam da niste krivi).
What say you CSR Nation?
man how bad I want to beat the shit out of those punks, I hope the real cro fans next game agree amongst eachother to really bash these fuckers heads in if they show up next game.
The innocent will have alibis, they are dead right on most of these dudes.
I personally believe that those maps and conversations were zajebancija and think the local fans hid them there. Time will tell if I’m wrong. I’m saying if you have inaccurately lumped innocent and guilty parties together that it’s not accurate. Corak is only one is example and I hope he sues the shit out of the media for inaccurately posting his name. That being said, those who actually did it will now be known and we’ll get closer to solving the swastika incident
It may be a small group of people throwing flares, but why has this problem persisted for so long with no effective measures taken by the Croatian authorities? It is because of this inaction that the tarnish and responsibility runs deeper than a few idiots with flares.
So, you got these guys saying the location of the flares on social media there in france and they are obviously in a group together wearing similar clothes and fighting with the real fans and for some reason you don’t believe this……
Bz hvala brate
Not me anti cro shit
Just because it seems accurate doesn’t mean it is. Appearances can be deceiving. For example, look at Mario Corak. Dude was in the FRONT row of the game and all of the action happened about 15 rows BEHIND him. If you want a better and more factual page, check out Baljasi Orjunasi. I think we’re reading too much into their “conversations” and “maps.”
Yup I am just waiting for a response why ante bbb thinks this isnt accurate info?
Lock the fuckers up in a French jail for a good few years please and thanks. Preferably to be cell mates with big black African dudes. I’m happy we are finding out who they are, what their names are and where they live. Good job social media!
Pffff. Sure. Retard
These clowns look like they had some part no?…
The info seemed pretty accurate to me….Matching the faces to pics of the dudes wearing all black fighting the other cro fans…Also dumbasses posted there convos on social media.
An example of UDBA RADI gone wrong. It was shut down because those names were falsely reported as well as their images.
Bernie Bros are the worst
Violent trump protestors lol, u mean racist violent liberal fucking left attacking poor trump fans. Get your facts right.
Wow, you guys really take a lot of notice of this guy Holiga. Who the F@ck appointed him the spokesperson for croatian football anyway? Just ignore him, no?
Yep, perfect example. Holiga has a clear non football agenda and he deceitfully uses the vehicle of football writing as a way of disseminating his political views.
@BZ, I wouldn’t call anything to do with Donald trump a real political issue, but point taken…
You don’t have to be a genius to see that violent protesters are the slime of the earth. Just look at the violent Trump protesters. The losers yesterday are probably one step lower than violent Trump protesters, in the sense that they are protesting a game/sport/hobby rather than a real political issue.
My inside source tells me these losers are going to throw flares on the alley of the next PBA bowling tournament!
recall when holiga wrote about Thompson and our fans singing his songs at the game, or about the checkered jersey and politics, garbage journalism but to uneducated it sells
you have to be kidding for that line and link
“I don’t understand how people can say this is only 50-60 people. Look at this banner before the Turkey game. Pretty eye opening.”
I saw that banner and now people like you and some others try to make it sound that the HNS and this team has more enemies vs fans. Come on , how many people threw flares, maybe 10, maybe 20, guaranteed not more than 50 morons at that game and look what they have accomplished. Dick all. Fuckin cowards, throw flares, hit some innocent Croatina spectators and run off before security shows up.
Just about everyone I know is so upset with what these morons did. I guess these morons can’t stand that HNS has built a good team. This team had potential to do damage but of course someone like a Holiga, you, Ziva and the boycotters welcome this. Hope you are all happy.
Good point, Crnkovic.
First playoff slot is settled. Italy wins Group E. If Croatia gets second in the group, they play Italy on Monday June 27.
Right. 2 things. 1….if these people think that croatian football is corrupt,they should look around and smell the coffee. Of course croatian football is corrupt so is the rest of croatia. So is uefa, so is fifa, so is the EU, so is the international banking cartel which buys off governments and controls events to the detriment of ordinary people in almost EVERY walk of life. That’s the world we live in. So why sabotage the Vatreni in their job of giving us all some much needed joy and optimism? So wrong.
2. Why make this an issue for the world to see? If there is a problem with croatian football and politics, which of course there is, then take it to the streets back home. Blockade the streets of zagreb, refuse to pay taxes, burn mamic house to the ground. Don’t go to the stadium in front of the world and throw your toys out of the pram. Nobody is gonna care. If anything the rest of the world say, “oh wow, croatia must have some really corrupt individuals running the show, somebody get me mamic’s number, let’s do business….” So yeah, maybe these are really mamic supporters trying to get him some international attention…….
Right thing to do to teach these izdajnici a lesson. Come down hard on them, jail time. Real cro fans kick there fucking asses in the stadium, theres probably 5000 fans right there vs 20 punks. And Uefa no punishing the team. And of course croatia coming out stronger agains spain which i think will happen.
What happened to the facebook link imenahuligana?
these are yugo sympathizers, deserve to get there faces pounded in
Also Allen you clearly don’t get the issue people have in regards to Holiga, its his politics that are the issue. Politics which he goes out of his way to infuse into almost everything he writes. That is not good journalism.
Allen that Juraj bloke is another idiot. You just need to look at his twitter feed where he is claiming in the day leading up to the match that the Croatian media is being hysterical in claiming fans are planning to disrupt the game. He doesn’t even bother addressing it since in how badly he fucked up in his assessment. That’s some real suspect journalistic integrity right there
What happened to the slogan “politics and sports should never mix?
These idiots need to find another platform.
I’ll bet some of these idiots could care less about Mamic and Suker. Just a bunch of assholes who get off on having the World talk about their actions.
I don’t understand how people can say this is only 50-60 people. Look at this banner before the Turkey game. Pretty eye opening.
Just like most of you, I do get tired of Holiga’s skeptical opinion. His prediction of Croatia being the flop of tournament was pretty silly. How can such a talented team collapse in a wide open tournament? It was a terrible prediction.
He is the man for Croatia news on major platforms (Guardian, ESPN). I have to keep his perspective in mind. That doesn’t mean you have to, but as someone who always keep track of what’s going on with Croatia, I usually always read his work, regardless if I agree or disagree with his opinion.
This tournament really brought Croats together. You could even see it on this site.
Now it all came crashing down. It’s bad enough that the players will be distracted in the games moving forward, so we’ll never see what our potential could have been.
It will take an entire game with zero incidents to get our players back to where they were before.
I don’t see how we can prevent another “attack” like this unless our politicians state that any further incident will carry a 10 year prison sentence.
Sports are fixed rigged – Mario Pasalic and guys like Radosevic were injured. Check your facts first.
Keep in mind that some of the comments are from non-Croat trolls who hide behind names like “Turkey” or steal the identity of regulars. But, obviously this incident is the fault of just a few bad apples.
On Holiga, I don’t agree with everything he says, but I’m not blinded to think that everything he says in incorrect either. I just call ’em like I see ’em.
What’s up with the fans? I realize they hate this mamic crook but who isn’t in power and corrupt these days. Get over it.
How do some of you on this site take the actions of 5-10 idiots and say “oh, yup, that’s us Croatians, still backwards, mental midgets, etc.”
Go ahead and lump yourselves with these scumbags, but leave the term “all us Croatians” out.
Neither you or the hooligans represent the rest of us.
Fuck Ireland are being hard done by … feel sorry for em
But they were there because of Mamic, so they’re Mamic fans, even though they don’t support him.
Synonym for Fan is Supporter. So the question now is, how can you be a fan but not a supporter?
UEFA says the federations are responsible for their fans, the hooligans are not fans in my opinion.
Good point but what do you expect from someone who thinks holiga wrote a good piece. You can count on holiga to write negatively about Croatia be it soccer or politics.
No muscle rupture/tear for Luka or Mario, status for Spain game is day to day:
Brkic, I disagree. While the word “fan” may have originated from “fanatics”, its modern definition certainly isn’t the same. Those misguided animals from yesterday are “terrorists” plain and simple. Hopefully their plans backfire on them. There is the right way to protest and theres the wrong way. Theirs is the wrong way and an excuse for violence. Once they kill an innocent they’ll realize the error of their ways.
That is not Idemo.
The word “fan” is short for fanatic (def. a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal, especially for an extreme religious or political cause.) It’s all semantics, but I think it’s correct to call them fans (“idiots” works too) even if they’re not “supporters” of the team in the current form.
No these fans are Torcida.
Sabateurs aka, Croatian fans. Please…we have to own up to our country’s constant stupidity. We are not even in the same class as some of the other country’s in Europe!!
Why do you idiots post holigas article on here. It is crap like that article that fuels this garbage. That article is not bang on. Another piece of garbage. 99.9 percent of our fans are amazing. It is always the 50 morons that give us a bad name.
Can it be possible that the hooligans are fans of Mamic?
I don’t even remember our boys in the 90’s playing as well as they did yesterday.
What’s the scoop with Modric? Some media outlets are saying he’s out for Spain. Others are quoting Cacic saying he is O.K.
Idemo-phew! I thought you had lost it. Hopefully others that agreed were imposters too.
After a good night’s sleep, c’mon Croatia, win this thing!
Perisic admits playing after the shit show was surreal, and he wasn’t in the gsme. I don’t blame him, but let’s get back on track, now that Uefa and the rest if the world now know these are saboteurs, not true Croatian fans.
Stipe, we are probably through. Four points should get us through at worst as a third place team. A lot of bad shit has to happen for Croatia not to be one of the third place teams at worst. They will probably have already clinched a third place spot before they play Spain. As for scenarios, obviously if Croatia beats Spain, they win the group and play one of the third place teams in another group. If Croatia ties Spain, or if they lose and the Czechs don’t beat the Turks, Croatia is second and would play Italy in the round of 16. The only way Italy doesn’t win their group is if Ireland beats Belgium today and Italy Wednesday. Highly unlikely. In which case Croatia would play Ireland. If Croatia lose to Spain and the Czechs beat Turkey by more than a goal, Croatia is third and likely in a third place playoff spot. If they are a third place team, they would play either first in A or first in B, so likely France or England.

Like I said before I don’t know who Holiga is but I just read that article, and to me the guy seems confused.
He calls the people that threw the flares fans that don’t support the team! They are different to the fans that support the team.
One question remains, if it is indeed possible for fans to not be supporters, which set of fans don’t belong at this game?
That second “idemo” about turkey isn’t me
Good news in that case Brkic.
I think the press coverage is helping. UEFA would be giving the fans who threw flares what they want if they kick us out, so hoping this weighs on their decision.
As I said above, it would be great if they push the FA to reform the corruption within, but it’s kind of tough for UEFA/FIFA to point the finger given the corruption that goes all the way to the top of those organizations.
What do you guys think our chances are of being sent home?
I just hope we aren’t sent home. For once I really began to believe that with this amazing play we could go right until the end. The euphoria in Croatia and the players was so high. All feels like its been destroyed now.
I know Holiga is persona non grata around here, but his latest is pretty much spot on:
We are villagers, yes, why fool ourselves. We once produced people who tried to rise above the crap of the balkans. But somewhere, sometime in the years since independance we decided to jump head first into the deep end the balkan pool and it is hard to see any hope of getting out.
Where’s that troll “Turkey” that trolled the site, looks like he was right all this time . We truly are a bunch of villagers!!! We don’t belong in soccer anymore!!! We are a different breed…no class….We should just concentrate on water polo for sport!!!! At least the flares will get put out!!!
it doesnt depend on other groups
4 points – we’re through already
i can gaurantee it
who we’ll play – well, that’s more tough
but we’re through 100% confirmed
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJVDioS-XXY BILIC commentary, now the whole world is focusing us instead of the football
Stipe it depends on the other groups if4 points is enough to carry us through
Allen Strik being a dick ? There’s a first.
Allen Strk sucking Holiga’s cock on twitter, ugh you dimwit.
Some people on this site need to be TKO’ed, that means they’re getting more of a beating, which would be preferred to getting knocked clean out!
Some people on this site should get knocked the fuck out
I am so sick of those cockhead “fans” fuck me.. fuck off.. ffs.. this is possibly the second-last tourney we are gonna see great talent from Luka and these cunts want to ruin is.. fuck me..
u know what we need? Stipe should go around and knock out each cunt, that’d be awesome
@Stipe, pitaj mamu
@ svima, jebem vam mater komunisti, cetnici, udbasi sto su ovo radili.
You guys talking about how Croatia is playing good were not going to win. It’s all scripted for France to win at home you guys will see so stop blamin g the hooligans either way Croatia is not going to win. It’s all entertainment usually out of Germany,Spain,Italy,France velike drzave ne male kao Hrvatska. You guys saw how evident it was at the World Cup 2014 opening game how the referees favoured Brazil. Funny how Ante Coric was chosen in the Croatia squad over Alen Halilovic a player who plays in the Croatian league over a player who plays in the Spanish Primera League what a joke. Also Mario Pašalić should have been in the squad as well.
Mateo is not used right and Cacic is kinda fuckin up with his subs 2-0 and leave Manzo in and he is playin average I like Manzo’s hustle but he didn’t have it today Gordon looks fat and slow we need a better defense and that will kill us in the end. Defense wins Championships!
HELP, PLEASE GUYS, ANYONE!!!! LoL
If we lose to Spain ? An Czech beats turkey by a lot. What will happen to us? Does every group have a third place option, or just the 3 or 4 top third place teams with the most points? And what happens if we lose and Turkey demolishes Czech or we lose and Czech DEMOLISHES the muslimani by 5 or 6 goals?
Also if we get second place what team from what group will we most likely play? And what team if we win the group? Also if we get third place what team from which group will we most likely play?
I’m sorry my fellow Hrvati, but I’m confused. If anyone can lay out the scenarios and how many goals do Czech and Turkey have to score and shit like that for us to qualify. I know if we tie, we qualify but if Czech ties they can win with help ESPN said .
Vida was playin good banging headers back to check half with consistancy should have took manzo off and put in Mateo he is fast how come they try him on right wing has burst especially in a sub role
actually not a sad day for some people, ziva istina and his kind on her along with holiga are loving this, dont kid yourself……..they are
To echo a lot of comments here…sramota!
What a bunch of morons…completely ruin it for a team that has played extremely well and with lots of heart and passion.
They were really playing with a confidence not seen as long as I can remember. Sadly, I think our tournament is over. Mentally, the players have had enough. Some of the post game remarks reinforce that.
How on earth do they smuggle those flares in is my question?
With all the security risks in France, how does that happen?
It’s irrelevant now because UEFA will come down on us tomorrow…if not for this tourney they will for the WCQs (already we have two games behind closed doors).
I hope we can show our pride and come back stronger but I doubt it….sad day for Croatian soccer.
no kidding, of course it was expected, all idiots including all those boycotters fuckers
forgotten in all this BS, no pk when player runs Mandzo over in the box?
And this was expected wasn’t shocked they did this
The boys played amazing both games. You just had this side show which distracted them and gave us a bad name. imagine if you are a player, here you are thinking what happens next game. More flares? get kicked out?
The game went to shit the second modric went out
They were waaaaaaay better than us in the air
Post game interview with assistant said Luka will probably miss Spain game
I love how during the game NONE of you cunts have anything to say but are POST match experts.
At the end of the day our boys played EXTREMELY WELL, They applied pressure and made a lot of chances, MOST chances in the tournament so far.
If I was President of Croatia, which might happen in 5 years, I’d buy a 1,000 tickets for cops to be in the crowd. Great for the cops and INSTANT beating for these fucks.
I really feel bad for the players to have to deal with this crap, but if we’re behind them I suspect they’ll fucking kick the Spaniards in the nutz.
exactly, they care because they want one of their own in,
they cant stand what the current savez has built, this is a good team, built by the savez, feel bad for the real fans, players and the savez
….and do these idiots think they have the power to select the new HNS leaders if they do succeed in ousting Mamic and Suker? Who do they have waiting in the wings, St. Jerome and Mary Mother of God?
The new leaders will do the same shit. Nothing more pathetic than naive Hooligans.
Why do they really care so much who the future crooks are unless they think it could be one of them?
I agree it is sad and they have been playing the best football that I have seen for quite awhile. Seems we have scumbags who want to put an end to this and they can’t n’t stand that we have a good team. My concern is will points be deducted. Reading on the net all the coverage is how bad our fans are etc, that is what the public reads and hears. Probably 30 ruin it for all of us. Real, real shame.
I would replace Vida with Schildenfeld, I’ve never liked Vida at CB
The hooligans/terrorists now believe they have done their job and the team will fold. Please, for the sake of us real fans, don’t reward these idiots.
The best response from the team is to keep playing the way they have been – and even better
The best way to fight back and hopefully end this bullshit is to actually win the tournament.
Don’t know if the players have it in them to understand that giving up now is just what they want.
So, please don’t give It to them.
here we come to judgement from Prof.LAknat about our national team performance recently. the means of professor football so deeply, because he can make our national team become a world cup champions with his tactic.
GK Subasic…….. 4.0/10
what was that! he didn’t jump to reach the ball and let czech got 1-2 score. next game i will deploy Lov Kalinic
he can control left side both defense area and offense well
he managed defense well and don’t blame him for the goal, we know the goal keeper really garbage
he managed defense well and don’t blame him for penalty, stubborn ignorance Cacic didn’t use subs to boost our attacking and let czech got their chance
really impressed for his tireless, he dribbles ball well also conduct our attacking rythms astonishingly
seems ok somehow and he had contibute for our first goal
dribble well and versatility as a midfilder
absoutely menace for czech team, he just need a good forward to be his partner for goal scoring. stupid stubborn (SS) Cacic needs to replace mandzukic with a dynamite kramaric
composure to control ball in czech area, really cool for his first goal, but he got tired early after 70 minutes (he really loss his pace), SS Cacic should have subbed him and we still managed the attacking well.
he can keep the ball well, contribute for passing when we managed attack. if he has dribble technique like the God of Halilovic surely czech defense got scattered and easy to make a goal from assist
sigh ): Bad
SS Cacic should have subbed him much earlier
SS Cacic needs to be slapped to realize him for his fool!
if some player looks like tired = subbed him
if some player totally garbage = subbed him
this player vividly garbage!!
I have a team for speam:
… Iggy…. Iggy..
.. iggy … iggy . iggy…
iggy .. iggy.. iggy…
Was joking with my brother early wondering what will be the TSN “Euro match of the day” on tonight. Italy’s ugly win, Spains blow out, or our crazy game.
Looks like our crazy game it is!
I am so PISSED at the idiot fans that caused this!!! The game by Croatia was played well, and these clowns cause problems. There is no need for that. Start searching the fans at the gate, and put an end to this stupidness!!!!!!!!!!
My neutral friends (English Portuguese and Japanese) that watched with me today think we’re awesome and fucking nuts. They love watching Croatia!
My Polish friend was asking wtf this was all about and i had to explain it to him and he was like, wow, that’s fucked
which it is, but.. ffs.. please leave it till after euro
the team is doing well, the team is great, please ffs leave them in peace
Remove mamic and suker and put who in their place, you Allen Strk?… saljacine go home! You played for the Savez? you donkey!
Allen your full of shit.
…and sanction us from WC qualifiers if we don’t clean up our act.
UEFA should advise EU/France/Croatia to review the video and put the fans in jail along with the fans who disrupted the Italy qualifier. Then, UEFA should send the following message to our FA: “Clean up your act. Suspend any individuals on trial for corruption and permanently bar those convicted of soccer related corruption/crimes for life.” This is how to clean up all the fools… Then, the fans can protest the courts if they feel they are corrupt.
Of course,this is how a Croatian-American sees it, so maybe I don’t understand how the system works… please enlighten me.
Allen is too busy re-tweeting that scumbag holiga to have any kind of a clue.
good post on cro attempts
croatian has been playing excellent this tournament and finally coming into their own
we’ve had some bad breaks by not finishing some good opportunities
a great header from czech
and vida deciding to go for headers with his hands on his head
lets hope they can regroup, modric regains health , and they battle. all is not lost
I feel bad for Cacic and the players. For all the shit hes been getting about not being qualified for the job, he had them playing the best ball we’ve seen since the early Bilic days and all that is getting over looked now because of these assholes.
I for one love this savez, Suker and Mamic included for the team they assembled you have to give them credit I think anyone who doesn’t has a bias.
Your are correct. People like Allen strk support this shit. Why? Because of Mamic ans Suker. This has nothing to do with Mamic and Suker. If those morons didn’t throw the flares well we win the game and none of this nonsense. Amazing.
This is the Ziva Istina and hooligans narrative. Get use to it.
The mentally challenged BBB just told the world, “look what Mamic and Suker made us do,” now that’s embarrassing for them not me, I have nothing to do with those mindless twerps.
I’m pissed off they ruined my veiwing experience the fucking morons.
One more thing, drop fucking Mandzukic!
Kramaric best striker we have!
You make great points. Nobody wants to see these disgraceful people get what they want, but they’ve forced UEFA’s hand on several occasions. How many more fines can they give Croatia, before eventually saying enough is enough?
fucking budale…..sramota velika sramota….IF im the fucking players I walk off the pitch and go home. Fuck these guys. Not worth a fucking petard landing on rakitics fucking golden million dollar foot. I go home if I’m the national team, enjoy the summer and go back to my million dollar jobs.
As I called it, cross in the box and Corluka being soft on the header. It’s a continuous trend that teams have figuring out.
We are beatable on crosses and after 90 minutes we will eventually concede. Corluka cross = goal!
As for the fans that ruined the game you should be shot! fuckn monkeys! You have embarrassed all your people, your nation, the team and us fans. Sramota you cock sukers!
Allen-The last thing I would do is give into any demands these morons are making. I liken that solution to paying ransom to kidnappers. Just my opinion.
We were playing our best soccer since ’98, Modric and Rakitic had finally arrived! It was beautiful…until this BS! If anything, some credit should be going to Suker for putting this beautiful team, and Coach together.
My god , completely agree. No one gives a shit about our corruption.jesus you’re so ridiculous. Don’t you get it they are all fucking corrupt. Who’s gonna fix Hns? Platinum? Lmao.
i like to urinate
I have just been informed by a source in the know that this was caused by a very small faction of BBB and Torcida working in cooperation.
Allen Strk says:
But football is corrupt almost everywhere. Is it not a bit small minded to think this a problem that needs to be exposed outside of Croatia? What does the rest of the world care about Mamic and Suker? And is this issue really important? Sorry I don’t think it is. I hope the rest of the world’s message to these flare throwing douchebags is: we don’t care, it is not important, go back to fixing your fucking scooters and serve me a pizza on my vacation.
Considering the real challenges facing Croatia, such as years of recession, corruption, youth leaving in droves to work elsewhere, I have no sympathy for these idiots who think they are doing a public service by throwing flares. But then, as Cacic has been quoted as saying, Croatia never really clamped down on these people despite having years to do so and there is no excuse for that. It would not be hard to investigate and take mitigating action against them, this is not the camorra.
Croatian games= DRAMA
Trying to turn this into a positive? Are you insane? Just like most people, I consider this to be one of the darkest days ever in Croatia football (soccer) history. I’m absolutely disgusted at what happened. That being said, I don’t know how anyone could support/defend Mamic & Suker.
It bums me out to see the prime years of Modric, Rakitic, Perisic being wasted from this corrupted nonsense. Breaks my heart to see Srna crying his eyes out during the anthem to deal with this bullshit. The players care and I really think they are capable of making a major run into the tournament. That appears to be over. Why should these players play in fear worrying about another attack?
No point in continuing this argument, but at least more attention is being brought up about the internal issues within Croatia. For this to happen at a huge tournament could spark something. UEFA can’t afford to let something like this happen again.
Lineup next game if I were Cacic
Vrsajko Corluka Vida Strinic
You nailed it. Thanks.
So sad this game ended up this way.
People should have been talking about how good Croatian players are but instead they’re talking about those morons who threw flares on the pitch.
I got news for yous, Mamic and Suker are going no where anytime soon. and when they finally do, the new regime will do exactly the same. So get over yourselves. If youre not happy with them, then dont follow or watch. Dont ruin it for the people that actually DO care for what Hrvatska stands for.
@Fin who the fuck said support the clowns? We need to support the team
“More support to get these clowns removed”. Such a stupid line. Give these morons support now. Yeah sure this will help the team. Love how people try to turn this into a positive.
It doesn’t cost much to have cameras on the crowd. If Uefa and the contracted security company do not have pictures of the perpetrators, then it is wven more clear who is at fault.
I feel really bad for the good, fun loving Croatian fans in that area, all of whom had their security compromised.
Turkish fans also had flares today, and considering the Russian flare gun the other day, it is clear these stadiums are not secure at all.
Allen, these idiots from BBB & Torcida have been causing problems and tarnishing our image long before Mamić & co., came around. You think they will start playing nice if and when they are removed?
The guys in these groups criminals and think they should be running the show.
Does that seem logical to you?
ZDS it’s hard to sub Halilovic when he’s not on the team you dumb fuck
Seeing major networks like ESPN and ITV talking about Mamic/Suker is pretty surreal. Not sure if this will lead to anything, but at least this is receiving national attention. Hopefully more support to get those clowns removed.
Modrič was the best player on the field.
Rakitič was the second best. World class corners and free kicks.
Strinič & Badelj are the weak links on this team.
Brozovič needs to eat.
Kovačič is garbage.
Mandzu is garbage.
Halilovič should have been the first sub.
Vida…..stipid! Who jumps with both hands in the air?
Yeah, when they are identified, cancel their passports tbh, dont let them travel anywhere even in europe, fuck em
That’s what I don’t understand. There’s a picture of these guys, mostly shirtless, in the first row with the title znamo imena od huligana or something like that. Those guys specifically were NOT the ones responsible. The shit started about 10 rows behind them. This can all be verified on the video.
The meaning isn’t to admonish what the other fucking idiots did but it’s time to publish their names accurately. You don’t want the innocent fans blamed either, right? This action was Torcida and has their name all over it.
Any links for Bilic’s commentary on the match today?
Is there a way to show the boys we’re behind them, not these cunts.
@Mile: shows good midfield play
also, thanks to wanko above as a serb, good job mate
LMAO crnkovic. The folly of Croatia…
Mixed grill have to agree. We are balkanci for sure. Hell, would Serbians react this way??? So fucking disgraceful….
Fun Fact: Attempts on goal through two games:
Croatia – 34
Spain – 30
France – 28
England – 28
Germany – 27
Italy – 14
Congrats to the Croatian team for playing amazing the game was all yours. Its unfortunate that a bunch of idiots can screw up things and basically changed the tempo in an instant. I as a Serbian know all too well what these idiots can do, These people cannot be called Croatian fans or in our instance Serbian fans. they don’t come to cheer and support they come to do damage. nothing worse then enjoying a great game and this interruption happens.
BBB fb page
Seems like both the BBB & Torcida were in on today’s shenanigans
Policija je znala što se sprema: Vrlo lako su ih mogli spriječiti
My uncle Tomislav Mercep (who u may know from various news) offered me a house in Zagreb but i had to say no cos, u know, he’s a mafia boss, lol..pity tho
I have no issues with our players, i think we’ll be fine.. even if we lose, we’ll go through, and we’ll compete.. and i think we’ll do well.. we’ll be fine.. the players are fine – great, even, it;s just the fans that are cockheads, but we’ll be fine, trust me
@tomo, that’s the big question. It could go either way. At the end of the day the players should play harder now for the sake of all the true fans out there and for the honour of Croatia. If they don’t react like that and instead take the quickest route to the beach, then they don’t deserve anything. Sink or swim time. Judgement day
OT, I think I’m going to be able to build my dream house in Croatia for around 350K. 😉
The main question here is do the players still have it in them to continue with such good form…I guess my question is will they even show up as caring to play if and when Spain arrives?
I know the wind was taken out of their sails, and I can just see a fuck it attitude showing up to the next game.
u know, i am so sick of this shit from wankers who pretend to be croat
here’s my solution
pay ATB LUCKO a little more money
get them to travel to any cro game overseas and have them vet any cro person entering
and if there’s any prob, get one of them to headkick the fuck out of the wanker
sounds good to me
DannyJ you know it LMFAO!!!! Haha, it’s not my fault mum I’m croatian!! 🙂
I think Spain will sit back and try to control the middle and not attack much, since they are already through. It may look like the game in 2012. A 0-0 outcome would suit me fine. Then bring on Italy. Tied them twice in qualifying when Croatia were playing nowhere near as well as they are now.
i have full faith in our players
i just have no faith in our fans 🙁
lol crnkovic… i still think we can win it as well
this is our time to finally get over mental midget disease
its seriously genetic… it describes my youth in the short
btw can someone link me to highlights please?
Are you surprised that the US commentators don’t understand something that we think is senseless?
It doesn’t make sense but I agree they’re doing a decent job of trying to understand it. When they do I hope they can explain it to me.
Why do u say those names wont be accurate? What’s the motive in that?
And I agree, it is refreshing to read that people are becoming aware of the corruption within the Savez and this faction of morons rather than just generalizing us all.
well for all those things to happen like Mile said we should be good. all those 3 results are unlikely
lets hope no point deduction is had… hard to play france or england but fuck it we can beat them… we played strong today besides the end… we do need a striker
seriously if we had eduardo i swear he pops in at least one today
plus same thing… we still control destiny… no reason we can’t at least tie spain
Oh man. Lmfao. Now THATS entertainment…lol bunch of clowns we are. Hey world! We’re Croats. We have our best defender wearing a water polo cap to keep his brain from falling out because our doctors didn’t manage to stitch his head up properly in 5 days. Our fans are out doing the Russians and the English by beating EACH OTHER up. We’re completely and utterly DESTROYING the opposition, despite not getting out of second gear. We have a TV pundit from a rock band, with a hair transplant, who jumps on the table when one of his players scores. We’ve got a TV repair man as coach, who doesn’t realise you are allowed to make substitutions for tactical reasons not just to waste time and for injuries. We might be the first team EVER to get disqualified from a major tournament….but hey. I still think we can win it ….
we won’t be kicked out and i’ll tell u all why
we are lucky Luka scored that scorcher of a goal in round 1
it helps us in ways u can’t imagine, it doesnt just look good, it makes it far less likely UEFA is gonna kick us out
imagine if UEFA kicked out Luka after that ?
So we should all gather round Luka and give him a pat on the back for saving our bacon – we won’t be kicked out, no way
And – as anon said, normally 3 points is enough to get u through in this weird tourney, we have 4, we’re fine, relax, we’re through, even before the Spain game, we’re through, so relax… the only possible thing that can ruin us is our fans, other than that, we’re fine
how are the other groups shaping up? we still have a good chance at second in our group and most likely one of the better 3rd placers
what a gong show… now im thinking of those 300 memes and saying This is Croatia!… in all its stupidity
glad the real fans tried to self police the situation… like others have said, throw these fuckers in jail, punish them hard… this will deter… not the team dumbasses
how you guys figure they will line up if modric gone for spain??
Ireland beating Belgium means that groups 3rd place will at most have 3 points.
We need to calm and move forward. Our boys played excellent, dominated and showed their quality. We will not be kicked out, we will beat Spain on Tuesday and will take the division. Nema predaje, samo napred!!! A few UDBA idiots can not take us down. Unfortunately the UDBA still lives but we can not let them win. Bog i Hrvati!!!!!!!!
Horvat, the tournament is over for us because these terrorists will attack again. Provided we don’t get DQ’d before then. They caused us to draw the game and we might have even lost. They took the wind out of our sails and no doubt caused permanent damage to our aspirations.
You never know. Romania beats Albania, England ties Slovakia and a few other results can make it tougher. I would feel better if Croatia would have beaten Turkey 3-0. A plus three goal difference and four points would be a lot safer. If we are one of the third place teams, we probably play France or England.
I’ve read Croatian media and they more or less tell the same story as I witnessed when I saw Italy-Croatia at San Siro. Everything went great until some losers, dressed in black and not wearing the Croatian colors, started to throw flares on the pitch. If those morons are claiming that they’re the real Croatians, I can tell you they’re certainly not. In Milan I even saw them beating up other Croatian fans to have some space behind the goal.
One thing changed today and that’s great: the real Croatian fans stood up against those lowlifes and kicked the shit out of them. Hvala for our fans who chased those losers away. I hope that they won’t be sentenced for this by the French police. They should be honored.
I hope the retards now understand that nobody gives a fuckin’ shit about their complaints anymore and go back to their miserable lives.
Iggy we could have points deducted so no guarantee we have 4 points, or that we will be allowed to play the 3rd match even!
modric is out for the spain game…groin injury.
we’re through, 4 points is certainly enough, even if we lost 20-0 in our last game, we’re through, okay. in this comp, 4 points will always get u thru, there is no way 4 points is not enough to be one of the 4 best placed third placed groups. no way, we’re through, relax 🙂
Gabe Marcotti on ESPN explained the actions of the fans as soccer federation politics (Mamic/Suker), other analysts were ignorant about it, they were perplexed as to why supporters would sabotage their team
Iggy, we’re not through for sure yet. If we lose to Spain and the Czechs beat Turkey by two goals, we are third. We would then hope we have one of the four best third place records. Odds are that four points will do it. But you never know. We may know by kick off of the Spain game if Croatia is in the playoffs. If two of the following three things happen (Germany beats Northern Ireland, England beats Slovakia and Albania beats or ties Romania), Croatia is in as a third place team no matter what.
i’ve actually been impressed with the ESPN coverage that they’ve actually done some research to see what’s going on (a group of people are looking to bring down the federation) as opposed to just painting all of croatian fans with a hooligan brush
look, all we need to do is get Stipe over there and tell him who to knock out and we will be fine… lol
@BZ, it does help that thankfully real fans started beating their asses.
I am encouraged by all the espn coverage. They agree you cannot punish the team for the actions of these morons. They are talking about the internal politics, so it seems they are finally informed. This is a good thing for us.
even if we fucked up the end of that game, which it sounds like we did, but even assuming that, we’re still okay (4 points from 2 games) we’re still through to next round even before the spain game
yes i realise we should’ve won but we’re through
so the only thing we have to worry about is wanker fans
But surely they arent seriously considering kicking us out? we’re on 4 points after 2 games, meaning we’re through already even before the third game, we’re through.. they won’t kick us out…. will they?
We’re up 2-0 after 60 minutes, dominating the game entirely, should have been 5-0. Then Modric pulls a ham string and gets subbed off. Czech score on a header with their first chance of the game in the 76th minute (Subasic should have done better). Then idiot fans threw flares in the 85th minute, stopping play for about 5 minutes. Two minutes into injury time, Vida mistakes soccer for basketball and puts his hands up to head a ball in the box. Penalty. 2-2 final. Modric may be out for the next game and we need to wait if there are disciplinary actions against Croatia. We went from euphoric to miserable in 30 minutes.
Thanks Mr Black, i wanted an answer like that, ty
SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED U CUNTS
We were winning 2-0 when Czech Republic made 2-1 with a lucky strike.
Four minutes before the end of the game, some desperate losers threw flares at the field, like they did in Italy. The referee was about to finish the game (we would have lost 3-0 if he had) but finally decided to go through. Czech Republic even scored 2-2 but the damage could be even worse.
We could be thrown out of the tournament because of the behavior of some morons.
And even if we don’t get kicked out, we’ll have to do without Modric in our next game since he will be injured.
Watching Cacic and Bilic, bashing these fuckers. Bilic even said we’re the BIGGEST MONEY sponsors because of these fuckers.
Now think about this, if these morons can bring flares into the stadium, some real terrorist could come in strapped with C4. A flare is the size of a stick of dynamite, how many flares were thrown, 8 or so. Shit, you could kill several100 people with 8 sticks of dynamite.
Really like the great job that was done in split when they placed swastika on pitch? Like the great job croatia have done to stop these guys in the past years. Are these your facts?
CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED FROM START TO FINISH IN SHORT FORM PLEASE FUCK
why is ANGELA pissing on my dreams????
She’s saying we’re DQ’d ?
Whjat’s going on FFS
Nadam se da ce objavit imena kretena koji su to napravili.
How is the tournament over for us? Lets get up and keep going. Talking about mental migit disease.
SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED
There’s a list coming out with the names and pictures. I’ll be the first to tell you they are inaccurate. The names you see are those of the guys who tried to stop everything.
im sorry, i seriously passed out, can someone please bring me up to speed on what all this fuss is about ??
are we in fan trouble? im not being an arse, i really dont know? what happened?
rumor coming out is croatia will be disqualified from the euros. with heightened concern over terrorism, uefa taking it very seriously. the clincher was the explosive that went beyond just a simple flair
Croatian Army would have a vested interest (their jobs and their patriotism) to do it right; French army not involved rather a private security firm….
Know your facts before spouting off.
Umm sorry i kinda passed out, i know it’s 2-2, so we’re thru
anyone with highlights please?
also what’s this talk about us being in trouble?
These protestors make Croatia look bad on the world stage!
Spain just smashed Turkey. Do you guys think Spain rests a buncha starters against us? Giving us a shot at the top of the group?
It is almost impossible to keep your head in the game after that stupidity.
The tie is not on the players.
Badelj sucked again.
That was the La Vida Loca moment I predicted.
Brozo was not our best player, not even close. Sorry that is just crazy talk.
Thank goodness for Rakitic, Perisic, & Modric.
Think the hate for Mandzo is a bit extreme, but other than his great D, he did not capitalize on his chances.
Tournament is over for us, regardless of what eufa decides. Players shouldn’t be worried about the actions of any fans, including their own. C’est La Vie.
You think croatian army or police are better the french? Ridiculous, but typical, we are the best mentality.
I agree Mishko….it can be done. If the French security cannot get it done, then lets have Croatian government offer up the army to sweep the entire stadium in order to ensure security. You can bet our military would crack some heads if there were any trouble!
Agree Brkic. As per subs, should not Mandzukic have come off at half? Should we have gone defensive when Modric was taken off? Kovacic did not seem to have been the right choice. Lets hope team can puth this behind them.
@Sude Mi, if this is true, then the Croatian Federation needs to demand the stands be searched prior to Spain. We could definitely beat them and might need the points if Czech beat the Turks with more than one goal or visa versa. Even with the win, I don’t think it’s a done deal at this point.
Brkic, I don’t agree it was on Corluka, he was tight to the guy maybe not exactly between him and the net but the guy made a great header….to me, if you watch the replay I say Subasic gave up on it…don’t know if he felt like he was going to dive into the post or perhaps wide, but he gave up on it….also should have closed down the cross much better…
Btw, team needs a better doctor if they can’t stitch/staple that gash on Charlie’s head than what is being witnessed….sheesh.
I have been told the perps were from Split (some of you may have heard this already) and that the flares were planted in the specific section by their buddies with the St.Ettiene Ultra group….fucking security couldn’t sweep the sections before the game to ensure nothing was there?!?
I’m still so fucking pissed I can’t see straight….the only saving grace with Spain smashing the Turks is they may play their second team against us on Tuesday!
It’s so hard to focus on the actual soccer in light of this, but here goes.
We missed Modric. He is like the glue that keeps everything together and makes everyone else look good. Real Madrid gave up a handful of similar leads after subbing him off this season too. We have to hope that he can play in the round of 16 assuming the reports are true and he’s out for Spain.
Cacic needs to stop being stubborn and use his subs. There is a reason everyone else uses their subs with 20-30 minutes left in the game. It takes a few minutes for a player to get into the game so giving them 3-5 min at the very end is probably worse than not using them at all because it only disrupts things. We would also have a better idea of what to expect from the bench in future matches when we may need to play them because of injury, tactics etc. He needs to stop thinking that he’s going to reinvent things by playing the starters for 88 minutes a game. He also needs to have some trust in the players he called up. I didn’t agree with all of the players he called, but it looks like he has doubts about them too. Otherwise, he has done a good job with lineups and tactics. He also made some good comments in his press conference about the incident that will hopefully help the situation. He has a big job to rally the team and help them to mentally come back from this, so that will be a challenge.
Corluka had some blame on the first goal and Vida certainly did on the second, but they played fairly well overall. We knew going in that our back line was a weakness and we lack depth at the central positions, so I have to say they are at least playing to their ability level. Subasic should have done better on the first, but it was not a terrible goal and we know he’s no Cech.
I do think it’s fair to blame much of the collapse on the fans, so hopefully the players don’t let it impact them too much. We looked very solid for the majority of both games.
We have had years to stop this shit. Tells you the quality of effort or of the croatian law enforcement. In a country of our size they could deal with this issue if they had the will or the basic competence. Amazing that they cant. But then that is Croatia today.
Not croatian?! What are they Serbs? Don’t be ridiculous, who wants to damage croatian football, nobody cares that much….
What can I say? A few of us talked about these things. Uefa, Fifa,& general law enforcement is to blame. 1) uefa & Fifa have encouraged sabayeurs, by threatening to punish the team rather than the perpetrators. 2) Law enforcement, allows these things. If one or two people were thrown in jail, then these dipshits would think twice. Instead they get deported, and those are the ones guilty of actually injuring other people.
The one saving grace, is that American espn coverage understand you don’t punish the team. Keller knows this is a security issue.
@MarinHrvat, the last time I went thru LAX International, they have a cute hound dog that smelled everyone. If they wanted to keep BOMBS, FLARES etc out of the stadium it’s pretty fucking easy. But what if these fuckers aren’t even Croatian.
Surely there must be photos/video of their faces. I’m assuming they were not covered/masked as that would have drawn suspicion. I’m sure these few fucktards have been naughty before. Can they not run their faces through a criminal database or something along those lines?
Brother you just said it. They are cowards, just like in Italy. I remember they throw flares and run. Cowards.
Yes treat them as terrorists…single them out…a small group of idiots ruins it for the nation…but for all those who say that full cavity searches are required…that’s a bunch of crock…as someone indicated above sniffing dogs would have found flares…if flares can get into the stadium then so can anything else…security is to blame!
The flare throwers bolted right after doing it….you can see them in some of the UK video’s as real fans are poitning at them and in some cases came to blows….cowards of all cowards. I’d light them on fire for such cowardice. Brutal.
Perisic said he asked the police to go into the stands, but was told they weren’t allowed to. If this is true, that would mean the saboteurs were only stopped by our real fans. I bet there will be some really good stories coming from fans that were at the scene.
Yep, this act had Torcida written all over it. The same extremist group of fans that carved the swasti into field in split and disrupted the Italy match.
elcroato, i agree with you and i agree with Cacic when he called these f**ks terrorists. this tournament was setting up nicely for a great run for captain Srna and the boys. they and all true croats don’t desire this, but i say fight on! za dom!
the french government could do the hns a favor by applying very strict criminal charges on those throwing flairs. give them several years of jail time, treating them in a similar way to terrorists. doing so would highly disincentivize this action. 10 days in jail won’t do anything. croatia has 30% unemployment and even higher amongst youth…10 days in jail doesn’t matter. they have no where to be anyways
Our body language was shit after the restart. U could see we were so embarrassed and defeated from the flares.
Anyone else notice as soon as we subbed Luka it seemed to turn to shit.
Fuck it! Let’s finish 2nd and beat the Wops!
As long as we’re not chucked and we make the ko rounds.
I wasn’t there but I assume that the morons (who threw the flares) were attacked by the normal fans. That should give them a idea about how respected they are. Maybe they will stop.
Important is to find out the identities of those losers and make them pay (or do a lot of time) for the damage.
Not surprised Torcida are involved and run away. Shame.
Nothing is to stop it except a full cavity search of each fan.
No way on earth should a team get punished in any way for this, what kind of logic is that? Put these bastards in jail for a month at least , fucking torture them. For those of you speculating about who we may be playing , it doesn’t matter. It’s over for us. This has destroyed us,and I guarantee if we play again , it will happen again.
What’s to stop this from happening in our next game?
I was finally able to get the wife and kids out of the house for a few hours. I had two choices today. This game or PornHub. I would have been happier with the porn.
The french have obviously used intel/prevention rather than complete security vetting for this tournamenet. This is normal, you cant treat hundreds of thousands of fans as if it were airport security. Flares are not bombs, so thus far they have not failed security wise. Blame our balkan idiots, blame ourselves.
Early reports indicated the following happened:
-a group of Torcida and local French fans started verbally and physically harassing
-the aforementioned started throwing flares and objects
-BBB and other fans attack Torcida who threw flares
-Torcida runs away during the attack to not get caught
It was the same strategic interruption as in the match against Italy in November 2014. Exactly when the players were making the final push toward taking home all three points, they set off the fireworks. It was obvious that Srna, Mandzukic, Rakitic, and co. were worried about even being able to finish this game once they saw the smoke. They knew they might be made to forfeit it all anyway, and once they had that thought in their heads, they couldn’t focus on the game itself. Cacic was smart to make two defensive changes there at the end, because we were about to lose that game. None of the Croatian players even had the desire to keep playing after that. We’ll be lucky if we even get to keep that point.
I can handle the collapse given the tournament style being forgiving and all. Get it out of your systems. The hooligans though….. Brutal. Crappy thing is any fine of any sorts will only promote more violence from these asshats since it validates their actions
in fact, what would be best is if Turkey ties or beats the Czech Republic…then our result against Spain doesn’t matter. This is all assuming FIFA doesn’t dock some points from Croatia. But i have a feeling they will just fine the hell out of them, but not dock points. As the American announcer said, doing so would reward the hooligans…that doesn’t look good for Suker or Uefa.
There is no point in talking football. These saboteurs have ruined our tournament. There is no coming back from this. We should just pack our bags and forfeit the remaining game. Otherwise we’ll get to witness some more primitivism from these scumbags.
well, spain is two goals up. If the result stands, then Croatia is in, even with a loss to Spain as long as Czech republic doesn’t beat Turkey by more than 1 goal? (?)
Yeah, cant blame Vida completely…the holigans completely screwed up the flow of the game. And French security, get some damn dogs…flares are the least you have to worry about this day and age with all the crap going on in the world.
I think good old Olic coming on though after the flares would have done it…probably would have ate a few of them up like a paper shredder and got some freak goal last second. 🙂 hahaha
Spain is looking pretty special to me. They are running the Turks ragged just like they did to the Czechs.
The best I have ever seen Croatia play!
And Spain just scored. Spain doesn’t look anything special, we can beat them. But I hate thinking we need the win. I’m so pissed today. WOW and 2
Gotta agree, even before this tourney I was concerned with Subasic. He should of done better.
The attack was mentioned days ago. The French are not personaly responsible but they cannot let the flares get into the stadium. With all the Isis supporters that live in France there should have been bomb sniffing dogs. If fans fought then we have the villans on security video. They must be named now!
Mandzukic sucked and should have been subbed out. He has no pace. Brozovic was our best player. Subasic was smiling at one point when up 2-0, a very bad fucking sign. He played like crap.
And yeah, psychlogicaly, we took a big blow. Can we recover?
The fans are idiots, but then football attracts these idiots. That is why i would never travel to watch these games. Not worth it for a sport that either for corruption, low class diving players, violent fans, is always defeating itself.
It’s hard to give a critique of the players at this point because the rhythm of the game was entirely thrown off by those idiots. Also, it’s hard to judge it without emotion at this point.
Don’t blame security, UEFA or other Countries though, it is all on these few Croatian fans. Making up conspiracy theories about others is BS until proven otherwise. I’m sure that’s why they were fighting each other, some probably tried to stop our own fans from sabotaging the team and got into a fight over it. I don’t disagree with the reasons for their frustration, but the methods are definitely a result of that mental midget disease everyone references.
@Anonymous, I work dogs in protection sports and they can ABSOLUTELY smell a flare. You’d think that after the November attack that France would have it’s shit together.
wow, what a disaster. quick update before i get back to festivities
so i havne’t spoken to any of the players yet, but i’m in france and talked with some personnel around the lockeroom area.
it appears there is some hope in terms of modric’ injury. he is definitely out next game it looks like.. he pulled his groin muscle, but the thought is it is not a severe pull but will take a few days to recover from. modric felt the pull and did not want to risk it so he came off, thinking the game was in hand. croatia does not want to risk him playing against spain and prefer he be healthy for the knock out round (of course that might be a bigger if now)
Can police dogs not shift out flares?
If uefa and fifa were serious about fighting this crap and eliminating it…the solution is simple…post the names and addresses of all the culprits on all media outlets around the world…single these people out…let’s then see if the bullshit continues…too my point above…this is all pre planned…nothing that contains gunpowder in it should be able to enter the stadium.. France is on high alert? Are you sure?
Hrvati se tuku sa Hrvatima…jebi Lovrena u guzu…
Sramota! Luka, Srna i equipa…imo pezat ribu…
Again, some blame has to be cast on Subasic, he has to make the save on that first goal. After that he looked shaky, didn’t seem to be confident and as willing to come off his line to attack the ball.
He has to be better.
Bilic on the telly now talking about this – “some of them are on a mission” The Ultras are geography based it seems – they think the Croat FA is biased to Zagreb at the expense of Split.
How can any of you guys have anything negative to say about any of our players today. They play their fucking hearts out for 2 games and then have to deal with this fucking embarrassment . Those mother fucking flares cost us winning 100 percent. I don’t want to hear about Vida .it was over for us when they did that. Over. I took days off from work, my son missed school , so that these mother fuckers could ruin dreams for so many of us, especially the players. They dedicate their lives to practicing and pursuing their dreams of representing their flag. And you blame Vida? I wouldn’t even care if our players just walked off the field, and said fuck this. I feel worse today then I did when we lost to turkey. We are the best team in this tourney, but mark my words, it’s over for us. Jebem vam majku svima , picka vam materina. And fuck France and their fucking so called security.
I’m not crazy about Mamic or Suker (read my comments), but after today they have my full support. To the losers who want them out: Go fuck yourselves. You’re an embarrassment to our country.
Oh man. Watched the game with my kids, my daughter said after the game “wow that was like a film, I didn’t know football was so exciting, can we watch it again” she must be a jugo….lol. Things were going too well, it’s not the croat way. What a disappointment, we should have been at least 4-0 up though, that’s what pisses me off the most, failure to be aggressive enough in front of goal, failure to take responsibility and MAKE SURE you score when you get a chance. Cacic should have put one of the other strikers on, to say hey mandzukic if you don’t want to score I will take your place in the team…kalinic, kramaric, pjaca any of them would have scored at least one goal if they come in with 30 minutes to play. Maybe then the fans don’t act like morons. I don’t know. Someone talk to me. I need help. I’m fasting Ramadan, now I need vodka big time
iam from iran
i like croatia
but now i am very sick for this equal
sorry for sabotage…
Guys, it is over. The hooligans have figured out how to sabotage all the matches. Our players cannot focus on football with this hanging over their heads. It is too bad, we could have done something in the tournament.
Mandzo should have put that chance away infront of the net, I was saying if we had Olic in the squad this would have been a good game for him because he is good with those types of close net chacnes
This says Croats were fighting each other.
I thought Vida was excellent save for the handball…jebi ga, shit hapens….saw the same ball to hand yesterday in the box and nothing was called…go figure.
If anything, I would have really liked to have seen Srna bring the boys together during flare cleanup and emphasize remaining focused, disciplined and organized….could have ridden this game out in spite of the fan nonsense.
Yes, I would have liked to have seen Mandzo replaced shortly after going up 2-0, fresh legs to badger Czech back four.
Maybe they were Czech fans, you never know.
Did someone above me mention Olic as a sub? Haha, he’s not on the team unless you hit up the Hottub Time Machine and went back to EURO 12′.
2008, 2012, 2016 always dragged down by bullshit
please stop calling those assholes “fans”. fans do not sabotage their national team.
This is kinda turning into EURO 2012 again
Who should we hope wins this Turkey vs Spain game?
we dont need lovren, if he was playing we would of lost
Sramota from those dickheads disrupting and what the fu@k Vida?
we get second even with a tie vs Spain, I doubt turkey beats spain today
Hey Vida, looking great out there buddy 🙂 Guess he got confused by Corluka’s cap and thought he was playing water polo.
Where is the guy who told me we dont need Lovren on the bench? 🙂 Even without him, where are the subs Cacic in such a crucial time?
WTF…screaming out the window now. Fans absolutely retarded…simple. Completely shifted things, a lapse of concentration,etc…and shit happens. Jebi ga…
on a side note , the game plan is for spain to win….gives cro a lot more options to finish 2nd
You know we dont like to do things the easy way
4 points should be enough, hopefully the players can re-group.
i also read that modric is out injured for the spain game….holiga’s twitter account if you search modric on google
59 minutes to go in the czech game
cro up 2-0, third goal banging on the door
guarnateed qualification to another round
finally seemingly playing to their potential
30 minutes later
second round highly questionable
fine/point deduction from WC qualifying/expeltion from tournament possible
how quickly things can turn
The only thing I can say is that maybe this will teach the players to go for it and score some goals when we’re on top. I’m angry with cacic. He’s done perfect so far but he should have given pjaca or kramaric a game, their pace would have decimated czech back line and they would have been hungry hungry. Mandzukic looked like he couldn’t be fucked today. Wtf!!!??? Someone needs to take action with these fans. Maybe a little bit of anger will be good for the team. Unless we get disqualified. fFS
Just when ya thought Croatia was gonna cruise into the knockout stages, fan hooliganism rears it’s ugly head.
Throwing flares onto the pitch when your team is up 2-1, 3 min from time????????? Shear Lunacy!!
After that happened we lost the momentum and concentration, allowing the Czechs to get back into it. That “break” allowed the Czechs to regroup with vigor and launch attacks at the restart. Our we team didn’t look the same after the flares, their body language was terrible, demoralized, as if they couldn’t wait for the match to be over.
My prayers go out to that steward, as I hope he wasn’t maimed/injured by that attack. Again crazy! I’m praying that this is also the last of the disruptions. And that those responsible are held accounted for.
They played well up until the 86min, I give our boys credit though, just the fans did them in just like in the Italy match.
Olic would have been a good replacement for Mandzo in this match
Modric ruled out vs Spain
not fans, just jugos, just want us to fail, we have many croatins/jugos who want this team to fail
As a Serb I should be happy but come on guys.
So stupid….dumb ass fans….tired of this…shit
i hope i’m wrong, but we won’t even make it out of the group
These people throw the flares and always get away with it. Bullshit there needs to be a full investigation. I want to know who these fucks are.
This kinda feels like when your first obese girlfriend breaks up with you then you wonder how someone like that can break your heart. I feel bad for Srna also, but we have one more game left
We should have been 5-0 up by that time. Mandzukic was terrible today, should have subbed him out straight after second goal. Kramaric or pjaca would have gone on that pitch hungry and chased it down. Fucking idiots in the stands. Fucking mental midgets on the pitch. Let’s see what happens. Smfh
I really feel sorry for Srna. He wanted this game badly, played like a beast and look how it ends for him. We had three points locked up. Just like in Italy, Morons along with all those boycotters.
To purchase tickets was a credit card not required? Security video must have footage. No security in the section? Find them!
on the flip side, jugos, and people like ziva will be happy, all idiots
Bravo MartinHrvat. I agree with you 100%. I suspect there are anti Croatia elements posting on this website also. We have enemies people. Nothing new.
The stands were being watched there must have been arrests. We need these people outed.
I said it before these are not fans. A few morons spoil it for everyone. It was in the media the past few days this might occur but I figured they would not do it. I was wrong. Morons. Fuckin morons.
instead of celebrating with beers now we are going to need tissues because this feels like a loss
I thought it was only Rakitic who just got blown up?
I hope the steward is ok…because if he is seriously injured or God forbid blind, then the penalty will be greater
Throw blame toward Subasic, he’s gotta make that save. Stop that and there is not as much focus on the fan’s actions.
That one steward got blasted with a flare. That certainly did not look good.
Usually I side with the navijaci. No, not this one or this time. A complete tragedy and travesty. To me, they just lost their battle against the HNS. Even the anti HNS guys I know are beyond pissed. Embarrassing and I won’t be shocked of an eventual early departure.
Regardless of the flares, wtf was Vida doing?
@slavonac You really believe that it’s only our people at fault? Like I said earlier anyone can put on a Croatia jersey…cheer with our fans and then fuck us at the right moment…and again I question security…France was just on high alert for terrorism issues…yet flares which have highly detectable gunpowder get into the stadium? Even if it was true Croats at fault, which I doubt, the point I’m trying to make is that the flares should not even be able to enter the stadium
Such a shame.
I was at San Siro to when Croatia against Italy where a couple of morons did the same as today. Just arrest those idiots and have them raped in French prison cell.
The only good thing about it was when the other Croatian fans turned against them.
At this point, if we got thrown out I would be ok with that. Like Croat said, it’s embarrassing to watch what they did. Fucking cunts. And then Vida, he’s played awesome, and then doing what he did. GTFO.
Can anyone explain to me how these flares get through “security”?
Our fans are fuckwits. Hope they get bashed
People are saying how we are the best team in this tournament so far and the fans messed up the game for us
They must be sticking the flares deep up their asses to get them in. France has been a total shit with security. Any arrests with the flares? Oh what’s the point? We are poisoned with Yugo Balkan types and they will always ruin us. Do we have to beat Spain?
“Katastrofa u svakom smislu. I will not be shocked if we get kicked out of the tournament.”
Even if we didn’t, this team is done. they were flying, the spirit was hitting its peak. This will have shot all that to pieces, team will completely crumble now
Put the blame where it belongs!!!!
Our people are to blame, not security!!!
Katastrofa u svakom smislu. I will not be shocked if we get kicked out of the tournament.
This is seriously embarrasing
How the fuck did the flares get into the stadium?…it’s all set up…security in France should be fined…if they can get flares in then it should be pretty easy to get a bomb in as well…I’ve been to many sporting events…this should not be possible unless it’s allowed or set up…anyone can put on a Croatia jersey, cheer with our fans and then fuck us at the right moment
It’s over no way we advance.
I would castrate the fuckers! Sramota nevidljiva!!!
we could use a blow up doll instead of subasic
we can still lose it
flares killed momentum. just like in the Italy game
It’s always after these hooligans, then we get scored on
Hope the idiot fans are happy now.
On another subject, only 1 sub used again. Did Cacic forget that he has 3 per game?
oh for fuck sake, I hate this sport
We always manage to fuck it up
Vida pulls a Stejpan Tomas circa Germany 06′
You have to be kidding me
We are fucking mental midgets!!!!
There wouldnt be any point deductions would there?
This is some ridiculous shit, there is zero reason for it.
Well, we knew that was coming. Doesn’t accomplish anything budale.
It only takes a few ass clowns to make the rest of the supporters look bad.
This is embarrasing
nitro called it.
Fuck me, one guy almost hurt. Fucking retards.
fuckin flares again
Rakitic almost got blown up
WTF, seriously, flares?
Here comse the flares
You guys have to realize Ziva has many connected friends within the Savez. He probably bet for a 2-1 score line in favour of Croatia so he told one of his connections to tell Subasic to let the Czech’s pop one in.
It’s really been their only legit attempt on goal so he had no choice but to let it in.
I wish subasic would have told us so we could make some money of it, it’s good we’re making chances but we need to put them away thats what a good team does
Great. We’re going to be the team that pissed away a two-goal lead.
@Croat, maybe Subasic had money on 2 – 1. 🙂
Muther bitch do we create a shit load of chances.
Only we can do something like this -_-
Subasic jumped as if he had bricks on his feet
Dude. Subasic didn’t even reach for it.
Mandzukic should have put that one away
LMAO, Touch of a rapist. Fucking brilliant examination.
Mandzukic falls down faster than a leave from a tree but he gives us freekicks thats all that matters
Good thing is we will be in a situation where we can maybe see how other groups are going to shake out. Modric might be able to play limited minutes vs. Spain to rest for the knockout rounds. That’s basically like 10 days of rest.
Mandza is so awkward. Touch of a rapist. Couldn’t even get that gift from the Czech defender on net.
If Modric is dealing with even a mild groin strain it’s a concern as those injuries tend to linger and can be troublesome. I remember seeing him in the CL Final hobbling about in extra time as well.
Something to certainly keep an eye on.
Probably good to see what our play looks like without Modric in case there is ever a scenario where he does get hurt in the next few games.
What is Mandzukic doing
WERE SMASHING IT !! IFUCK EYAH
Fuck me I think Brkic is right, Corluka is wearing a water polo head deal. LMAO.
Flashbacks of the Italy injury, but he’s smiling and giving high 5s so he must not be too worried about it.
do i need to remind u all i picked 2-0 gosh
Luka off, I doubt it’s serious, but better safe than sorry.
THATS THE BACKBREAKER BABY!
So freaking cool from Rakitic!!!! 2-0
Does Corluka have a water polo cap? Our medical team are a bunch of clowns.
we are committing a few too many guys forward and getting a bit too stretched sometimes.
Time to make a sub
@Iggy, agreed, but if Badelj gets another yellow we’re down to 10 men and he’s done some reckless things, that shit in the box could have been a penalty. Just saying brother.
iggy smell my ballsack
ok i was joking, bu we’re looking good, 1-0 atm, good job
sorry, are u guys watching it an hour later?
it looks like it – im serious, it really does look like it
do u want me to tell u the final score?
We may want to make an early sub for Badelj because he picked up the yellow and committed a couple additional borderline fouls.
Maybe move Brozovic back into a holding role and bring on a winger.
ok.. Mandzukic needs to be subbed off!
Is this referee worse than the Japanese one with Brazil at the last WC?
He’s quick with the fouls and cards but not with the Czechs.
Poor officiating is linked to conflicts of interest and racketeering.
Brilliant goal by Perisic! One more in second half and onto the knockout stages….this group really humming nicely right now…
Cunt ref won’t give us the corner. If we were France or Germany they would have gotten it.
…and Rakitic had a very good first half too.
Credit to Badelj for the tackle/assist that led to the goal.
Nice job Badelj, you twat.
btw why is corluka wearing another hannibal thing? did he get hit in the head or did our pathetic medical staff not look after him properly?
poor corluka geez
What a well placed shot by Perisic!
Touching scene after the goal!
im so proud of our team atm, so good, wd ivan, love u long time, well done Cro, scorcher again 🙂
OMG, I’m screaming so loud I think I gave the dogs a heart attack.
ok i got the timing wrong, but surely we’re about to score, we’re so dominant
mind u we’ve been stung by this before 🙁
We’re dominating the opening 30 minutes, but no one can finish. Mandzukic had 2 easy headers and did squat. You figure even Ivica Olic knocks in one of those two.
Mandzukic now gets elbowed in the head and no caution card, but Badelj got one earlier for the same reason.
well, i cant believe we arent winning yet
Getting close iggy.
i predict 27th minute goal for us (as in 26.00)
Mandzukic needs to put that front post. He wouldve had Cech beat.
OT, a lot of hot chicks in the crowd.
And now with a yellow card. I don’t see him lasting the game.
WTF .. Badelj got a yellow for that????
FUCK OFF.. if that’s the case, Turkey shouldve had 20 red cards in the last game, fuck u ref
HRV so dominant though, good to see, same as last game.. keep it up fellas 🙂
Badelj put his boots on the wrong feet this morning or something. Horrendous shots.
Badelj two shit shots. Come on brother calm down.
nice to see Corluka’s head again btw, havent seen that in a while
oh god as soon as the game started i felt sick with nerves.. i feel like i have to turn the game off and not look im so nervous.. god im nervous 🙁
Ummm, why arent more ppl posting in here? It’s like a few minutes till game time, where are all the Croats ffs? Is this a bad time for U.S. or soemthing? What’s going on ? Where are my fellow Croats? I need to share my pain or joy, either way, to feel whole.
Btw Mr Black, if u look at what u posted about their team (thanks btw), and compare it to ours, we really should win comfortably 2-0
I think a draw definitely gets us through to the next round.. but obviously if we want to finish top a win is better
czech’s are okay but.. i think we should be okay, the main thing is we keep our intensity up..
the last match vs fat ugly hairy turk cunts who have inexplicably hot girlfriends who troll them, we totally showed our high intensity and intention straight away.. i want to see that again.. if we can maintain that intensity, we’ll be fine.. i dont want to see lazy croatia today, that’s for sure…
@Mr. Black thanks for all the info, I’m probably more nervous than our boys.
Three points would be great, one point would probably enough to reach the next round. A defeat would be a nightmare, it could be the end of the tournament.
This is where the Czech players earn their money :
Cech : Arsenal
Rosicky : Arsenal
Decent teams (at best) :
Plasil : Bordeaux
Sivok : Bursasport
Kaderabek : Hoffenheim
Darida : Hertha Berlin
Still playing in Czech Republic:
Hubnik : Pilzen
Limbersky : Pilzen
Krejci : Sparta Prague
Lafata : Sparta Prague
English second division:
Skalak : Brighton.
We should win this game!
fan of the match from our last game:
umm, hello there 😉
Official lineups :
Czech Republic (4-5-1): Cech, Kaderabek, Sivok, Hubnik, Limbersky, Plasil, Darida, Skalak, Krejci, Rosicky, Lafata
Croatia (4-2-3-1): Subasic, Srna, Corluka, Vida, Strinic, Modric, Badelj, Rakitic, Perisic, Brozovic, Mandzukic
I’m okay with this, but hope Cacic keeps a close eye on some of the weaker performers from the last match and uses his subs early enough to impact the match this time.
Reports are same starting 11 as we had vs. Turkey
only an hour till it’s time to smash some czechs
might make ziva proud and play as Croatia online in PES 2016 for an hour 😉
LMAO, Krapina Man representing.
What a joke to think that the security forces at these stadiums can allow any nonsense to go on at all, but of course they do ,I feel it’s done on purpose.
Sweden have not had a shot on goal this tournament…..pathetic.
what a boring game italy and sweden.. sheesh.. utter rubbish from them both
i really dislike ibrahimovic i have to say.. i know he’s a good player but he annoys the dickcheese out of me
I would conduct a full body search earch of every Croatian fan coming in….extra security on every step of our section with billy clubs….the first person that gets out of line gets cracked over the head and kicked out of the country immediately….fucking idiots to the small percentage of morons who ruin the good name of Croatians.
You got a propblem with Mamic/Suker? Go picket their homes every day all day if you want, otherwise jebi se!
I typed that then i remembered that’s exactly what they did in Italy during the qualies, wasnt it? We were going great and out came the flares, stopped the game and killed the momentum, totally fucked us over.
Surely the fans aren’t gonna fuck us over when we’re actually winning and doing well? What sort of cunts are they ??
truth be told, i’m not positive. throughout the week in practice cacic has been toying with vrsaljko in place of strinic and pjaca in place of brozo. but nothing firm yet, but i’d guess you get one change
my buddy says the players are pretty worried about the fans planning to disrupt and stop the game. they’re getting kind of sick of this distractioin. word is they’ll likely look to stop the game into the start of the 2nd half. the savez has been working frantically to try to stop it and are going to be doing extra tight screening for flares etc at the gates
oh haha nvm fellas, most of those pics are someone else she was confused with after the initial pics, got it !
jesus.. do a google search for “croatian president” and look at the images.. LOL poor Kolinda is only gonna be known by those images now
we have to wear blue
since no one else is gonna say it:
we dont get to wear the checks against the czechs!
at least that’s what they said on HRT news this morning here in Australia on SBS2 lol.
I picked 2-0 for us to win in my tipping comp but i think it could be a draw, which isnt bad considering that would put us through to the next round already – 4 points and you’re through.
Halilovic has more business being a part of the national team than Cacic as coach. Of course coaches matter Cacic lack of earlier substitutions in the Turkey match could have cost the opportunity of another goal. I don’t think Cacic can keep getting away with that. A smarter opponent will observe tiring players and make their own tactical changes. Teams win games, squads win titles – Alex Ferguson
Hey nitro, what’s the line up buddy?
I would’ve preferred Halilovic ahead of Rog.
I was actually surprised more of the Mamic lovers didn’t complain about Coric, Rog and Pjaca being in the squad, anyway, now that they’re in the squad I’m hoping Mamic can make some decent coin out of it.
Vrsaljko to start at lb? Hmm. I’m ok with that. I have 1-1 against the Czechs.
Just finished watching the game against Turkey again.
Forgot how many excellent chances Brozovic had and Strinic was definitely our weakest player,
Corluka left the field 4-5 times and had us playing short for quite a few attacks,
Srna actually moved the ball forward over the sprayed line that the ref put down on his free kick that hit the bar – might have been better where he originally left it to give it time to dip.
The announcers pointed out that Croatia has the second best record among the 24 teams at the tournament against European clubs in all Euros/World Cup combined – 10-5.
So for all the posters that were railing against Cacic and still think that the coach at a short tournament is so important, why aren’t you coming out and saying that Cacic schooled Terim and is a better coach than the Turk?
Because he’s not. Coaches at tournaments don’t coach – they pick the roster, lineups, and make substitutes on top of their most important job – keeping team unity.
And how silly was all the banter regarding Halilovic?
Against Germany I thought the Poles had the better chances and looked likely to win. They lack finishers outside Lewendovski though. Against Germany that can only be a good thing.
The blue jerseys are not a bad thing… I believe in the euro 2008 quarter final run we did not have a chance to wear red and white either….
Anyone know if we’re wearing home kits tomorrow or against Spain? Looks like they both have red/white as the primary color in their home/away jerseys, so perhaps we’re wearing blue for all three group games…
As well as we played in game one, we have lots of room for improvement. Can’t ask for much more from Mordic or Corluka, but everyone else played at or below their ability. This is good because we were not firing on all cylinders and still turned in one of the more impressive first round performances. Even Perisic who was the 3rd best player on the pitch was capable of playing better. I’m hoping we can build off the first match and see some heroics from the likes of Rakitic, Perisic, Brozovic and Mandzukic. They’re all capable of man of the match type performances.
@Lazio I fucked that one up royally, was on the phone and you can’t edit shit on CSR. T-Bone, Poland did not look great today I’d say you’re spot on with, Italy look really good and so does Spain, Croatian also looks very good, but I don’t want to jinx it. We need to beat CZ and then payback against Spain. But to beat Spain we have to take the refs out it. Spain owes a shit ton of money to the EU bank.
I’m calling a win tomorrow and then if we’re lucky a draw against Spain. If Spain fucks up tomorrow against Turkey, there’s no way we beat them. The refs will make sure of that.
Only teams that look good so far are Italy Cro Poland Spain .
Middle of the pack are France… Germany … Swiss
There are definitely paid provocateurs… look at the Russians half of their hooligans were professionals.
My crystal ball says 2-1 win for Hrvatska. Mandzukic and Ivan P with the goals.
Yea, that small group are paid protesters
The majority of our fans are good, it is a small percentage that cause problems and those are not fans!
I think Mishko might of misspelt veteran, but I get what he means, we’ve got some good veterans.
I just wish they were more vatreni!
The only thing that can stop us from winning tomorrow are our fans
“If our boys show up tomorrow and play like they did on Sunday but do a better job of finishing I don’t see us having a problem.”
I’d like to hear from anyone who sees it differently?
Let’s to harvatskaaaaaaaaaa
If our boys show up tomorrow and play like they did on Sunday but do a better job of finishing I don’t see us having a problem. But this tournament is very strange like BZ mentioned. A lot of top teams look very beatable. Shit happens it’s football.
Best of luck to the Vetrani tomorrow.
I hope we go for it and hand these Czechs their fucking asses.
The path to the championship has already been clouded. Poland has chance to take first in their group. Belgium & Portugal had poor results. At the end of the 2nd place may be an easier path to the finals.
Germany definitely looks beatable.
Might be able to outsmart Cameroon, i mean, France.
England still shaky much like ’14.
Tournament is anyone’s for the taking.
