His first appearance was on Feb. 10, 1999 against Denmark. In all, he has been involved in 18 games. I say involved because, in 3 of those games, he only played one half. Croatia's record when Stipe appeared in a game is 8 wins, 9 ties, 1 loss. However, the game they lost was one in which he only played one half and was not the one who let the goal in. That was his first game he played against Denmark. Altogether, in 18 appearances, he has let in 7 goals. That gives his a .39 goals against average. For three of those goals, two of Croatia's top three defenders (Tudor, Kovac, Simic) did not appear in the game.
