Croatia

After a strong Euro 2008 qualification and tournament itself many people started to sit up and take notice of Croatia, with players such as Luka Modric they have plenty of talent. It was then a huge surprise that they didn't qualify for the World Cup and they will surely be looking to put themselves back on the map with a strong showing at Euro 2012.

Their last European Championships performance may have been disappointing in that Croatia went out at the group stage but they were only just behind Spain and Italy, the eventual finalists, so they could be value here based on those performances.

Croatia Recent European Championships Performances

Year Team Performance
2012 Eliminated Third In Group
2008 Eliminated In The Quarter Final
2004 Eliminated Third In Group
2000 Did Not Qualify
1996 Eliminated In The Quarter Final

Croatia have done fairly well in recent European Championships considering their size, they have reached the quarter finals on two occasions and that represents their best performances. They have also failed at the group stage on two occasions and they didn't qualify in 2000. There is no doubting Croatia are a decent side but sometimes they lack the strength in depth to qualify for the latter stages.
