Since Croatia’s iconic red and white checkers was unleashed on the world football stage at the EURO 1996 tournament in England, it has always featured among the best-rated kits at major tournaments.
Football magazine World Soccer, which has been among the world’s leading football magazines for the last 50 years, has put Croatia’s kit on its list of the World Cup Greatest Kits in history published today.
Croatia’s 1998 kit, which they wore when they won bronze in France, has made the list of the greatest ever World Cup list.
“Croatia 1998/2018 – In 1998, Croatia decided to make their national flag into a World Cup kit and did so nicely. The red and white square design was such a success that it has been replicated several times for the national team. The 2018 kit is also a good-looking kit too,” writes World Soccer.
