What a great win by Croatia! Just when everyone thinks that Germany will win this match easily, Croatia defies the odds and wins this match convincingly. The last few minutes of the game was furious with Germany's Schweinsteiger getting a red card for retaliation. Croatia has proven to us that their 2 wins over England in the qualifiers were not by accident. I think Croatia is now favorites to top Group B. What do you think?

ya...!! same here.They showed tremendous enthusiasm right from the beginning.It was proving to be a rather one sided match. So, Croatia really do have a fair chance.Lets wait n watch.

I thought Germany will have it easy as Croatia did not play well against Austria. Surprisingly, Croatia raises their game today and plays very well.

what a celebration here in croatia, unbeliveable, i think that we have a great chance to get atleast in semi-final btw. to add about first match with austria, we play, i mean croatia whos playing good in first 15 or 20 mins but after that austria has started their hard-tackle game and referee was giving them enough freedome to play like that for whole match

Agree. We (Croatia) play finest when play in open games with respectable teams. About game with Austria: That wasn't our peek, that's true, but the fact is that good players (such as Olic) haven't chance to get up from the grass as they were constantly chucked down by Austrian fowls.

haha ^_^ Yeah, i think it will be a close fight between the top 2 places.. As germany's last game is against austria, one of the host left in the tournament.. And as for poland, they must win in order to kepp hope of qualifying for knock out stage.. haha ^_^ SO i think maybe croatia will just finish 1 point ahead of germany..

Yea. I think that's the most likely scenario. Unless kelong (like in World Cup 2002 - South Korean) and Austria win the last match. Then Croatia and Austria will be through..

may not be the case, if poland and austria wins, both will be same points.. And it will be decided by penalty shootouts.. haha ^_^ But i will still wanna see austria thru to the semi finals, because they are one of the host country.. hehe
