v Croatia  Games won: 2 Games drawn: 3 Games lost: 1 Date Match Result Score

LOL who's Greece? Oh only the team that beat you to the top spot in the Euro 2012 qualifications undefeated

Unlike most of us whom still think we have hidden stars like Cristiano Ronaldo playing in the Greek Super League, Skibbe has worked out Greece's limitations, it's strengths, weaknesses & best way

I'm quite happy with this draw. I'd place Croatia as the third strongest team we could have drawn. Italy strongest followed by the Swiss, Croatians and then weakest as Denmark. 

Thank goodness it's not Faroe Islands.

They are already underestimating us, like it's a foregone conclusion. Who's Greece?? let them underestimate us at their peril. Same sh*t came out of Bosnias mouth.

Not all Croats share that sentiment:

Σίμιτς: «Η Ελλάδα είναι ο χειρότερος δυνατός αντίπαλος»

143851.jpg?w=880&f=bicubic

«Η Ελλάδα είναι πράγματι ο χειρότερος δυνατός αντίπαλος που θα μπορούσαμε να έχουμε. Είναι ένας δυσάρεστος αντίπαλος. Μπορεί η Ελλάδα στο ranking της FIFA να είναι σε πολύ χειρότερη θέση από την Κροατία, αλλά δεν πρέπει να ξεχνάμε ότι μιλάμε για μία ομάδα που ήταν πρωταθλήτρια Ευρώπης. Σύμφωνοι, σε ατομικό επίπεδο είναι ασθενέστεροι από εμάς. Αλλά είναι μια ομάδα που έχει χάρισμα. Από την άλλη πλευρά, είναι γεγονός ότι έχουμε μια από τις καλύτερες ομάδες στην Ευρώπη. Και πρέπει να κάνουμε ό,τι είναι απαραίτητο για να προκριθούμε στο Παγκόσμιο Κύπελλο της Ρωσίας. Έχουμε χρόνο να προετοιμαστούμε κατάλληλα."

"Greece is indeed the worst possible opponent we could have. He is an unpleasant opponent. Greece may be in a much worse position than Croatia, but we must not forget that we are talking about a team that was a champion of Europe. Agree, individually, they are weaker than us. But it is a group that has a charisma. On the other hand, it is a fact that we have one of the best teams in Europe. And we have to do what is necessary to qualify for the World Cup of Russia. We have time to prepare properly. "

The majority of the Croatian fans and media are very happy they got Greece as they say they shouldn't have a problem scoring a minimum of 2 goals at home and 1 on the road which will force Greece to open up and then fall apart.. I'm glad they want to play us and I'm happy they are so confident....

They have been our Pelates come on don't f*ckin be scared. 

Good names bad team. That's who they are.

15 goals scored in their Group while we scored 17.

Even if we consider Gibraltar far worse than Kosovo if we exclude those goals we still scored more. 9 over their 8..

This is the Second best draw after Denmark. Switzerland and Italy are far more decent and performing

Croatia after the 1998 World Cup have had big name players but they always under achieve, we saw that in the last Euros. Just as they did in Euro 2012 qualifying when Greece went to Zagreb and stifled them 0-0 and then we dispatched them 2-0 in Athens. Will do it again.

C'mon Boythes, the Socceroos highly fancy themselves against Croatia. I think Tziolara and the Pirates won't be intimidated by them critters. They have the game to out-do the Crows.

Ye but its not about the Socceroos, its about the Pirates are good enough to out defend Croatia. Socceroos would probably beat the Crows. You can't guarantee a result either way re maik!

Read what this piece bitter piece of s%$#! Bosnia Coach wrote about the Greek team and how he will do everything he can for Croatia to beat the Greeks. Read below..

http://www.agonasport.com/agonasport-allnews/bosnias-bazdarevic-i-want-to-help-croatia-eliminate-the-greeks

He will do everything? What will he do? Give them the secret to victory after Bosnia was lucky to leave with a point in their last outing with Greece? Please.

Read reports that England are considering boycotting the World Cup over Russian spy saga. Also report states that Australia, Japan and Poland are considering not going. If that’s the case opens up 2 European spots one for Greece hopefully? One for Italy? If England boycott FIFA rules state they are not allowed to participate at the next World Cup. I hope they don’t go and we get in somehow!

Articles say if England government prove Russia was behind nerve gas attack on double agent then they would pull out and persuade other countries. Who knows but I could see them wanting to send a message and Australia could follow suit, not so convinced about Poland and Japan. We shall see.
