For a small nation, Croatia once again is showing its impressive influence on European football after the semi-finalists were found in the UEFA Champions League.
Croatia is represented in all four of teams which have made the semi-finals -Juventus, Real Madrid, Monaco and Atletico Madrid – something that the likes of Argentina, Italy, France, and England can not claim.
Football powerhouse Brazil is the only nation together with Croatia with representatives in all four teams.
Germany only has players in the Real Madrid and Juventus side, whilst there are no Frenchmen in the Juventus team or Italians at Real Madrid.
Whatever happens in the semi-finals one thing is certain, A Croatian will once again be lifting the Champions League trophy.
