By  Nov 11, 2017

The Croatian national football team’s win over Greece in the first leg of the extra qualification for the World Cup in Russia was watched by around a quarter of the country. The 4 – 1 home win in Zagreb ahead of the second leg in Greece on Sunday once again proved that football is the most popular sport in Croatia as a whopping 960, 487 tuned in to watch the game.

The second half was watched by even more people with the highest viewer numbers reaching 1.5 million people. With a comfortable 4 – 1 win from the first leg of the tie the second game this weekend will decide Croatia’s fate and entry into the World Cup in Russia.
