ZAGREB, 16 July 2019 – The Croatian football federation together with kit sponsors Nike have released a special t-shirt to mark the heroes’ welcome the team received when they returned from the 2018 World Cup as runners-up.
The special t-shirt was released on the one-year anniversary of the biggest street party Croatia has ever seen when over half a million people took to the streets on 16 July 2018 to celebrate the return of Zlatko Dalic’s side a day after the World Cup final.
Named ‘Endless Day’, referring to that day on 16 July 2018 when celebrations went on all day and were beamed all over the world.
“I lived the best year of my life, the 16th of July is a day which I will never forget,” Dalić said.
The t-shirt features the Nike logo on one corner with a plane over the date, 16.VII.2018 on the other. The main image is a scene from Zagreb’s main square with the Croatian checkers on the top half of the image.
