Thought I might as well make a thread... Looking forward to this as I always quite like Croatia, plus I have money on them to win the Tournament. :lux: Be interesting to see how they get on. Turkey won't be any old pushovers.

As a slightly obscure fact both Turkey and Croatia's first appearances in a European Championships was against each other at Euro 96.

Croatia's central midfield looks a bit good on paper

Mario Mandzukic is class as well. Should be a good game this.

Got 5 on Croatia to win the Euros and Mandzukic top scorer... 225/1.

Could be tasty. Croatia out for revenge after their 2008 defeat.

Great shirt. Always liked the various table cloth Croatia tops too.

Both great holiday destinations. That's my intellectual input done.

After a difficult few days in France, sanity has prevailed...

Will be surprised if this ends 11 vs. 11.

2 x elbows by Turkey in a row unpunished.

Has Croatia's number 4 got a machine gun shaved into his hair?

Mark Lawrenson's contributions on the radio have been really poor. Meandering off into a discussion about the two Irish teams...apparently Northern Ireland lost 4-0 to Brazil in the 1986 World Cup because of the efforts expended in their heroic defeat of Spain in the group stage (1982 World Cup). And apparently he played for the Republic against France during the qualifiers for the 1984 Euros - which France hosted and therefore did not need to qualify for.

I really like the look of Croatia.

They look solid with creative flair. I think they can far as long as they don't implode. They remind me a bit of Italy in 2006.

I agree. They look a very good, solid side.
