World Cup fever in Dubrovnik as Croatia start with a win

By  Jun 17, 2018

Dubrovnik was awash with red and white squares last night as Croatia opened their 2018 World Cup campaign against Nigeria. Cafes, restaurants and just about every square and corner of the city was alive to the sights and sounds of supporters cheering on the national team as they faced the Super Eagles.

From deafening silence to an eruption of joy as Croatia scored. In a group with Argentina and Iceland it was important that Croatia got off to a winning start and they didn’t disappoint although it was a somewhat subdued performance.

When the first goal went in, an own goal, on 32 minutes the city exploded with song and then the captain and Real Madrid midfield genera, Luka Modric, fired home the second from the penalty spot on 71 minutes and effectively sealed the win.

Next up for Croatia is a tie against Argentina on Thursday.
