So sad to see Croatia eliminated from the toughest group. Of all the groups, C merited 3 teams in the quarterfinals. Bilic whipped his team into enough shape to tie Italy, beat Ireland and almost drew with Spain. That certainly qualifies his team to run deep this cup. It’s a pity to see them out.
Plus he’s gracious in defeat and has no bones about telling off the racists in the crowd at Croatia’s game. Plus there’s nothing like seeing him in his seething animalistic coaching state. As that game progressed against Spain first the tie, the whole jacket came off as he stalked the sideline.
