Paul Merson does not believe that England have a great chance to win Euro 2020, following the disappointing ending to their World Cup.

The intense feelings that remain from the brutal ethnic and sectarian wars that accompanied the breakup of Yugoslavia nonetheless surfaced as Croatia advanced in the World Cup competition.

Croatia's President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic might just be the most popular politician on the planet right now. During the same North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting, Grabar-Kitarovic gave a jersey to UK Prime Minister Theresa May on the day England's team played Croatia in the semi-final.

The Croatian President, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, is a learned woman who fills in the entire criteria of being a president.

Croats laid on a spectacular welcome-home party for the Croatian national team after its 4-2 loss in the final of the World Cup in Russian Federation - the furthest Croatia has ever got in the global soccer tournament.

Previously, the Croatian football team found itself in the midst of a scandal after the video showing player Domagoj Vida and coaching staff member Ognjen Vukojevic shouting "Glory to Ukraine" after the 1/4 finals match against Russian Federation appeared on social networks.

France versus Brazil was also revealed to be the most common final played out by users, with Germany against France the second most common. "All the more as the United States will host the World Cup in 2026". "Here she also is KISSING THE TROPHY despite the fact France won".

Standout players were Croatia's Luka Modric, who won the Adidas Golden Ball Award, and France's Kylian Mbappe, who won the FIFA Young Player Award. We are proud of what we've managed to achieve for fans of this wonderful sport.

Mario Mandzukic of Croatia scores an own goal to put France in front. "We hope to overcome all the difficulties", he said. I have to congratulate my players, it was maybe the best game we played in these championships; we controlled the match but we conceded.

China vows ‘firm and forceful’ counter-measures against United States tariffs
