I knew you guys would do well at the WC. You underperformed at the Euros and should have easily made the final only to lose to France. I still don't get how you let Portugal beat you in that game.
Rakitic and Modric were coming off their best respective seasons in Europe. It was no surprise. You also had an incredibly lucky draw. Had you been drawn on the other side, you wouldn't have gotten past Brazil, France, or Belgium. You probably would have been gone out in the round of 16 or QF.
You were also fortunate to avoid Spain as their style of play nullifies what Modric and Rakitic do (hence, beating in Nation's League).
The final kind of exploited you guys in all fairness. Lovren and Vida are not good enough defenders for the highest level of international football.
I think you guys are going to struggle hard once Modric and Rakitic retire. I'll make sure to quote this post in the years to come, whether I'm right or wrong. I'm pretty good at predicting these kind of things especially evaluating youth football. To be fair, you've also had a lot of bad luck with injuries and some talents not panning out. I'll give you that.
I really hope we get you guys at the Euros or WC qualifiers. It'll be a different story this time around as we are on the rise and you're on the fall.
