2018 FIFA WC: Croatia return home to a heroes’ welcome

XtraTime Web Desk: Croatia’s players and staff were greeted to a heroes’ welcome upon their arrival home in the Balkan country on Monday afternoon following their runners-up finish at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia – their best placing at a world finals.




The Vatreni flew into Zagreb, with the team’s plane being escorted by two Croatian Mig 21 fighter planes.

After landing at the airport, Zlatko Dalic’s squad then rode on a rooftop bus and greeted supporters along the road towards the country’s capital, with the players sharing in the celebrations.




The team then greeted a large and passionate crowd of appreciative fans at a rally in Bana Jelacica Square, which is in the centre of Zagreb.​
