Croatia has secured its place at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, following a 1-0 match against Russia.

The match was played today at a very rainy Poljud Stadium in Split, Croatia with the "Vatreni" coming out on top following 94 minutes of gameplay. In the 81st minute, Russia's Fedor Kudryashov deflected a ball from Croatia's Borna Sosa into their own net.

Fan and team spirits were high after the game, with the confirmation that Croatia would be travelling to Qatar next year. So far, Croatia, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, France, Germany, and Qatar have qualified. Starting November 21, 2022, 32 total teams will play in eight groups of four to kick off the next World Cup.

Here's to Croatia doing (at least) as well as in 2018! πŸ˜
