16 years ago, the Croatian national football team achieved one of the most impressive victories in history. On November 21, 2007, they defeated England at Wembley with a score of 3-2. This victory denied England the chance to qualify for Euro 2008 and helped Russia. On Tuesday, the “fiery” team is back at Wembley against Armenia as they hunt for Euro 2024.
On that fateful night at Wembley, Slaven Bilić jumped and ran around like mad while Mladen Petrić jumped into his arms. Steve McClaren was sipping water, but it wasn’t clear which bottle it was for him that night. That man had 100 lives, but the Croats beat him nonetheless. The victory will be talked about for years to come!
