Croatia as expected relegated to D2A after four seasons in Division 1. Interesting that in years when we stayed in D1 we used to get beaten by some opponents by 10+ goals, now we didn't lose any game more than five goals but going down to lower division.
It is impressive that Croatia managed to stick around for so long. Makes you wonder what could happen if there was some real effort put into the program there. And hey at least they weren't shutout in all five games; that one goal against Ukraine saved them from a pretty embarrassing fate. But your point still stands, they have really cut down the goals against. Just need some goals for. Still, don't think they will be back up in 2015; they're probably stuck in Div IIA for a couple years, at least until some proper effort is put into a youth program.
