Croatia will go to World Cup with expectations to at least qualify to the knock out stage. However with Brazil, Mexico and Cameroon in the group A it won’t be an easy task.

The team is packed with some big European stars with Luka Modric probably being the best known and possibly finding himself in the best form under Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid. Mario Mandzukic will go to his second big tournament after Euro 2012 now as Bayern Munchen player. IF they had an easier group he would be one of the candidates for Golden Boot award.
