A new Croatia fan video has arrived from Slavonia, just in time for Croatia’s second-round match of Group D against the Czech Republic at EURO 2020! The two nations meet in Glasgow tonight at 18:00 CET.
“The atmosphere from the recording of the fan song “Slatka mala Domovino” We are still doing the mastering, I believe that the song will be out a few hours before the game and that the players and fans will be able to listen to it.”
Creator Hrvoje Podobnik Gero reveals how the song came to life.
“I sang the chorus of the song 4 months ago. It was in the midst of the struggle of the civic initiative to save Požega Square from the intention to turn it into a concrete sidewalk. I guess that’s when the patriotic charge awoke in me. In my sleep, I came out of the playing field and the fans sang “Sweet little homeland, my country Croatia, you gave me your heart, I will give you everything”. I woke up and sang a chorus on my cell phone. When I woke up in the morning I couldn’t remember the chorus but luckily I recorded it.
I didn’t have inspiration for the rest of the lyrics since I only got it a week before the first game. I immediately threw myself into filming, found a producer and people who wanted to participate. It was very tricky to perform this, I really did my best and I hope the fans will accept the song well.
The most important thing for me is that the players hear it before the match with the Czech Republic and that it gives them an incentive to win,” said Gero.
Sweet little homeland, my country Croatia.
You gave me your heart, now I will give it to you.
Do you think this song will give Croatia the motivation they need to win tonight? We do!
