Croatia Hit In Herzegovina

The Croatian football team have been receiving a heroes welcome in Herzegovina as they prepare for a crucial World Cup qualifier against Scotland in Zagreb next Friday.

It is the first time the national side has been based in the popular religious pilgrimage of Medjugorje ahead of an international fixture. On Wednesday Igor Stimac’s side visited ‘Mother’s Village’, a centre which cares for children who were wounded by the loss of their homes and parental care during and after the 1990’s war, where they signed autographs and posed for photos with the kids.

Stimac’s side will hold an ‘open’ training session in Mostar for all fans after UEFA stopped their planned friendly with NK Zrinjski in Mostar from going ahead.
