Will newly-crowned Unofficial Football World Champions Croatia lift the World Cup trophy?

In case you didn’t already know, Croatia are the new Unofficial Football World Champions. It wasn’t a classic performance by any means in Nizhny Novgorod but Croatia did just enough to sneak past Denmark after a dramatic affair. That result bodes well for the European side as they seek a maiden World Cup trophy. It looked like the Danes were destined to win after Kasper Schmeichel saved Luka Modric’s penalty in extra-time but Croatia came out on top in the end. Their first title defence will now take place against Russia in Sochi on July 7th.
