Guys, Its JureM and I'll take my punishment like a man after this..if you guys want to, give me an extra month or 2 or 3 for posting under another name but, I just have to say this...while this game had taken every ounce of energy from me and I;m sure all of us, after tonight, I'm proud to be a Hrvat like never before. We left it all out on the field today.

First congrats to the Turks...they have a never say die spirit that I admire. What a game from them...its a shame they'll be missing 3 or 4 players but, they played their hearts out and that's all that matters. Wonderful job.

To Robert and Niko Kovac who are probably retiring after this one..Hvala vam!!!!

What can you do...we also played our hearts out...left it all out on the field today and it came down to losing in the worst possible way and that's penalties.

The future...looks great...lots of good young players and we will make a lot of noise in the next World Cup.

Everything I said about Olic I take back...the guy ran his heart out today...he's never been a great finisher but he did create a lot of chances...sta mozes.

Pranjic is going to be a great one...Modric needs to keep his head in the game a full 90 minutes...

Ehhh...I'm gutted...absolutly gutted. Though 2 minutes of added time when there never should have been is the only mistake this ref made all day long.

See ya in a few months!

Hey, sorry about the last post in the other threat, we can't go banning everything Serbian on XT, that was for 5 years ago, not now. Things are quieted down and good for it, because I don't have the time anymore to deal with that nonsense that used to be here.

Agreed with everything you said above, we were the better squad, and goes to show that sometimes anti-football can win, but the Turks played the way we knew they would with so many out. They played the full match and they were rewarded for it.

It's hard to say it, for all the hate Serbs and Croats seem to have against each other these days, but I feel pretty bad after this loss.

Congrats the the Croatian team here, they played their hearts out and left everything on the field. Really shitty for any team to get knocked out on penalties.

Your team showed their class today and has a bright future.

Modric is a beast, he's going to be a HUGEEEE hit on the EPL. Good luck to him.

Hvala Momci. Croatia is proud of you today and you've once again shown us in the best possible light.

Lady luck didn't smile, but chin up everyone.

Volim te Hrvatsko, svim srcem.

still i am proud of our team cause they fought hard and left their heard out there. throughout the entire tournament. as i saw one of our guys write somewhere it will take some time to recover from this. i honestly feel we were better

You were better in most parts, but it wasnt enough, because there wasnt enough chances there to punish the turks who played similarity as you did, closed nervous game most of it.

It was all about who fought for it more, in most of the game it was equal mental battle, until the last minute, where the euphoria of your goal made you lose focus, and you got unlucky.

And JureM, nothing short of a great post. Well said.

Hope so, but this one hurts sooo much, it was like home as 06 was. South Africa is a different story....

Maybe it's a good thing...we need the team to be as far removed from the euphoria as possible...hard to do but if we get to SA it could be our best chance.

Jure... classy post... very classy! Respect Mon! :thumbsup:

If I may inject... this is my second bout of acute and sudden depression. First episode was in 98. :cry:

IF anything... championship teams need to learn how to lose before they can win. Our guys just learned the lesson of a lifetime. This experience has to make them better. Bilic will ensure this painful loss is the first step to South Africa and a deep run in that tournament.

IMO.. going to the semi's or the finals for this team could have become a situation where to much success came too soonn for such a young group.

This loss gives our boys a greater purpose... a stronger resolve... an extra level of hunger that they will need to take on the Englezi and to qualify for the 2010 WC.

Our guys are so young and talented... I am proud of their efforts and Igleam with optimism about their future... but mostly... I am proud to be a Hrvat.

In every qualyfying campaign begins & ends a journey, for the players, fans & nation one of hope & dreams.

Our journey for this campaign has ended. We could not have asked for more. At times we were great, we deserved to have won but maybe lady luck is saving herself for next time round.

We should be very proud, considering the enormous achievement in qualifying, beating major teams like England & Germany & attaining credibility for the way we played & were supported by our fans.

We have qualified for six out of seven tournaments for a country so
small, simply amazing. Great memories forever.

On to our next journey!Well done CROATIA....AJMO VATRENI

Thing is.

We out-sang, out-chanted, and out-supported the 'fanatical' Turks hands down.

Perhaps the best fans in the tournament, they deserved a better result today.

Volim te Hrvatskoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!
