Here you are, CroatianSports.com nation. An early Christmas present for you!
Reliving some of the best Croatian football moments of 2021, we have ranked the Top 20 goals of the year by Croatian players – for both club and country.
Markus, CroatiaU14 and I compiled the best 20 Croatian goals of 2021. The goals are ranked not only by finish and difficulty, but the moment they delivered. Some moments are obviously bigger than others. Enjoy!
Thanks guys – great compilation but shows the lack of dribblers being able to score front on – wingers cutting in were there – the only real dribble was Orsic v Tottenham – lets hope we find someone who can take it on a bit
Lol funny! The #1 goal was a cross from Sucic to a Russian deflector. Nice levity humorous touch at the end.
Sorry that might have been Sosa
It was Sosa…have you not heard the play-by-play from the Argentine dude?
Great stuff boys! Thanks
Excellent job Ante!
The order could be a lil off in my opinion (perspective varies as everyone would but excellent nevertheless and bonus goal hilarious lol).
Modric goal outside the foot my fav and my number 1 as I learned and always liked how to shoot outside foot unorthodox(got more power as young’in) but fuckkk the way he hit it omg lol only few people in world could strike it like that with the pace and placement.
Why can’t kramaric produce free kicks like that for Repka!?… Sosa goal I believe should be higher rated outta those.
Rebic is our X factor when played in proper position.
Orsic is a gem whos always hungry and involved (last 2 goals against Spain). West ham goal as well as Rakitic’s strike vs Atletico could be the 2 best long bombs out of the 20 (Rebic vs Juventus is there also as well as Bradaric power/placement being closed down immediately and reacting instantaneously).
If ranking is based on importance then definitely understandable. If it wasn’t a rain shit storm in split the Russians woulda got slaughtered but job is done and tickets booked!
Was sucic goal deflected ? Irregardless great compilation!
Za Dom Spremni
The Universe is in balance.
Modrić returns rested and healthy for the new year.
Saw the image of Asanovic wearing the Umbro jersey, which brings up the question….
Which is the best jersey, home or away, worn by the Vatreni? 2018 away blue and black, number 1, with blue with checkered vertical sash narrowly beating out 2018 home jersey for second place.
Anything with giant-sized checkers is the best.
Both home and away 2018 World Cup kits were the best.
I like that they continued the black away kit tradition for Euro2020, but they got the checkers wrong when they went small. You couldn’t even tell that the kit was checkered when you watched on tv.
The home ones were good at Euro2020. The blue lightning bolt on the side is unecessary though, but otherwise, they got it right with the giant-sized checkers.
The larger checkers fix the problem with the number on the front of the kit (because the number can actually fit into one of the larger checkers, and we don’t have to ‘white-out’ an area on the kit just for a number).
The back of the kits remaining all white due to the name and number visibility makes sense.
Previous kits looked dumb when they had white blocks around the name and number, making a mess of the kit in the back.
I’ll never forget the disastrous World Cup 2002 kits where they wore white number blocks that were ironed onto the back (with some of them coming off).
I really hope they do not go back to small checkers for our next kits (with disgusting white blocks around the name and numbers).
Agreed. The smaller checks are too busy.
Yet another year of uniting Hrvati round the world.
Epic goals from epic players.
If Raktic continues his world class output in ‘22.
Do we call him for Qatar.
Dude is a big time player that can bang in a goal and also put in a penalty.
Is he the most underrated player of all time for us?
Alen Bokšić is usually my go to.
But Rakitić was world class in 2018 and money from the spot.
I mean it’s happening in November/December.
He will be in season form without being too tired.
His power is intact and his game was never based on pace.
With all these young studs in the back line and Brozovic who can run for two can cover for him on D.
Your guaranteed a Modrić or Rakitic always on the pitch.
I’d take him.
Even having rakitic part time on bench
God forbid something happens to luka
But who are all the midfielders you take? Who stays out
And 2024 it’s broz kova (sucic hopefully)majer and whoever else steps up in midfield
For sure some kid gonna really make some noise
Does Perisic stick around to 2024 and be the captain till then?
Is it really out of the realm of possibility that luka could play euro??
Luka’s outside of the boot number 1
Pasalic goal to tie Spain #2
Orsic hatty #3.
It’s all about the timing.
Great video Ante…I love these compilations, keep up the good work!
This was all CroatiaU14. You can thank him. 🙂
How about a Croatian “midfield magic” compilation next?
I’m still confused…how the fuck did Orsic not end up leaving Dinamo after that hat-trick vs spurs??
No kidding. He’s only 28. Shocked no one in England over-payed for him. Shocked.
Realistically what is Oršić worth right now? I agree you can add 5 mill to that and some English team should have dished out
I keep thinking there is something else??
Age? Cause he’s not a dinosaur
Cause he played in asia? Bad stigma?
Cause he has a knack for scoring against English?
He is arguably better in Europe then in domestic
So it’s not like he just plays good against weaker competition
He has shown he plays up to the level he is at
Is he some sort of starter in England? Probably not, but he surely can have some impact
3 Rebic goals, who needs him
Yeah, I noticed that too- 3 nice Rebić goals.
Too bad Rebić can’t look at himself and accept responsibility for his errors, make a commitment to learn from mistskes and move on.
Rebić would rather be insubordinate- blame Dalić and his staff (who at least see and acknowledge errors and offer hope for better going forward), which is in essence Rebić asking to be removed from the team.
If Rebić appologized for being out of line, I am convinced there is a place for him. However, if Ante can not make a commitment to execute orders without publicly criticizing, then it appears that he will have to wait for the mangers position to open up and apply for it before he gets to call the shots.
Sosa goal should be higher than 18
How many spots would you move it?
Nice goal but very lucky. Did he even mean to shoot????
And look who put the cross in to kudryashov. From being abused prior to Euros then being the one who sends us to Qatar, love to see it.
Oh i love these vids, i just wish 99.9% of Vatreni vids didn’t come with the same soundtrack is all but thanks for doing this either way!
And it’ll be the same two songs next year too 🙂
We will consult for 2022. You can be CroSports Musical Director
Honestly look at my youtube channel, with the 300K views on Vatreni and 400K views on another Vatreni vid, ppl dont want to hear the same song a million times over i promise, do something different.
Agree. Was just telling my cousin, Broz goal should be way higher than 9. To me it’s 2 or 3 (extremely difficult, plus extremely consequential).
Nice compilation, thanks for putting it together.
Ha! #1 is pretty great.
By that barometer Brozovic vs Slovakia should be higher.
Video quality knocked it down a few spots 😉
As always, Krama trying to take credit for the goal, lol
