Nations League: Croatia Stuns Netherlands to Reach Final

Croatia reached the final of the UEFA Nations League after beating the Netherlands 4-2 in extra time on Wednesday.

The match was tied at 2-2 after regular time, with Croatia scoring twice in the second half to overturn a 2-0 deficit. In extra time, Bruno Petkovic scored the decisive goal for Croatia with a stunning strike from outside the penalty area.

Croatia will now face either Italy or Spain in the final, which will be played on Sunday. The other semi-final is being played on Thursday.

Croatia’s victory is a major boost for the team, which reached the World Cup final in 2018. The team has been in good form in recent months, and its victory over the Netherlands is further evidence of its potential.

The Netherlands, meanwhile, will be disappointed with its performance. The team was the favorite to win the tournament, but it was outplayed by Croatia for long periods of the match.

The Netherlands will now have to regroup ahead of the World Cup in Qatar later this year. The team will need to improve its performance if it wants to challenge for the title.

Here are some of the highlights of the match:

  • Croatia came from behind to win the match.
  • Bruno Petkovic scored the winning goal for Croatia.
  • Croatia will face either Italy or Spain in the final.
  • The Netherlands will be disappointed with its performance.
