For Croatia-Old is Gold!


What is remarkable about the current team is the kind of energy its players have put in despite a high average age (29.7).

Seven of Croatia’s players- Modric, Rakitic, Ivan Strinic, Corluka Vedran, Nikola Kalinic, Mario Mandzukic, Danijel Subasic-are above 30.

But as it was witnessed in the semi-final against England (average age 25.7)’ when it comes to fitness and energy levels, they can do better than their younger rivals.
