Pajde Möhlin from Switzerland are the new Croatian World Club football champions…

Pajde Möhlin, who were unbeaten throughout the tournament, were too good for Vojvođanski Hrvati from Serbia in Saturday’s final in Zagreb, winning comfortably 4-0. Two goals to Prijić, who was also the tournament’s top goal scorer, and two from Beširević was enough to give the Swiss club their first Croatian World Club trophy.

Pajde Möhlin’s president is the father of Barcelona star Ivan Rakitić, who grew up in Switzerland. His brother Dejan Rakitić is also a first-team coach at the club.

Reigning champions Croatia Toronto from Canada beat Canberra from Australia 3-0 to finish 3rd.

Organized by the Croatian Football Federation in cooperation with the Croatian Heritage Foundation and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Croatia, the tournament features clubs from the Croatian diaspora. The Croatian World Club Championships are held every 4 years, with the first tournament held in 2007.
