FIFA World Cup 2014: Croatia 23 Man Squad

Croatia coach Niko Kovac has named his 23 man squad for FIFA World Cup 2014.

Number 10, Real Madrid’s Luka Modric, will perhaps be the best known among the Croatian squad, which also includes Everton’s Nikica Jelovic.

However, Croatia’s star men will need to be at the top of their game in 2014, as they are in the difficult Group A along with hosts Brazil, Mexico and Cameroon.
