Dear Orkney News,
When people are watching the football, 15 July 2018, I would remind them that Croatia became an independent country as recently as 1992 and many thought Croatia could never survive on it’s own having once been part of the much larger state of Yugoslavia.
Yet despite it’s size – it has a population of approximately 4.6 million people (smaller than Scotland’s population) it’s economy and society are doing well in the modern world and their Football Association has had the freedom to develop their sport in a way that is going to make it’s country proud when the team play in this year’s World Cup Final.
What would you and other Scots give to be in their position?
Ian Carse, Orkney
