The Football Scene in Zagreb

Maksimir Stadium
Maksimir Stadium

There are a few sports that capture the national attention throughout Croatia, but none makes so much of an impact as football. Particularly after the national team’s unexpected run to the World Cup final this past summer, where it was defeated by France, one could argue that enthusiasm for the sport is at an all-time high. Building even on this highlight for the country, it was mere months after the Cup’s conclusion that Croatian star Luka Modric was awarded the Ballon d’Or over the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, signifying that he was the best player in the world for 2018! All things considered, 2018 was arguably the best year in history for Croatian football.
