More Gold for Croatia...bottling your tears for Ante to enjoy once he returns

Respected German publication Bild has declared Croatia to be the best sporting nation in the world:

https://www.croatiaweek.com/eu-stats...is-remarkable/

and nobody knows how they do it:

Quote:
Statistics from Eurostat published this week as part of European Week of Sport which started this week proves that the answer does not lie in government expenditure on sport.

In 2017, all 28 EU members spent a combined total of 51.3 billion euros on sport and recreation. In first place was Hungary, which saw 2.5% of total government expenditure go into sport and recreation.

In last place out of all 28 EU member states was Croatia, with 0.2% of total government expenditure going into sport and recreation.
so it could be said that Croatia is at least 12x better than Hungary in sports

how do they do it?

must be the Croatian DNA

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

A noble effort Andy Sanyi and ante are smiling from above.

And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!
