Goran Vlaovi scored the team's first goal at a major tournament, a late winner against Turkey at the City Ground in Nottingham in their first group match at Euro 96. After their opening victory, Croatia beat reigning champions Denmark 30, but went on to lose against Portugal by the same scoreline in their final group fixture. Croatia still advanced to the knockout stage, but were beaten in the quarter-finals 12 by Germany, who went on to win the tournament.

In the buildup to the final, Croatian parliamentary members, including president Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovi, wore football jerseys in support of the team. Online searches for the team also reached their highest level in history, as the Croatian tourist board reported a 250% increase in website visits. Due to tournament structure, France received an extra day of rest before the final which promoted many, most notably football manager Jose Mourinho, to label the final "unfair" and deserving of "equal opportunities". Croatia eventually lost the final 42 to France, where a controversial free kick was awarded to France for a dive by Antoine Griezmann, as well as controversial penalty later in the game awarded by the video assistant referee (VAR) for a handball by Perisi.  After the match, Luka Modri became the first Croatian to win the Golden Ball award for best player of the tournament. For achieving their best ever World Cup finish, the Croatian players were greeted by an estimated half a million people at their homecoming in the capital of Zagreb.

Penalty Shootout begins Croatia 1, Denmark 1.
Following the tournament, Bili renewed his contract, becoming the first manager since Blaevi to lead Croatia to successive tournaments. Croatia were again drawn to play England in the qualifying stages for the 2010 World Cup; the tie was voted the most anticipated of the campaign on FIFA.com. After a home win against Kazakhstan Croatia lost at home to England, ending a 14-year unbeaten home record. The team was eventually weakened due to a number of key players' injuries and went on to suffer their heaviest defeat in history, losing 51 to England at Wembley Stadium. Although Croatia defeated Kazakhstan in their final qualifying fixture, they were ultimately eliminated as Ukraine, who had previously defeated group leaders England, beat Andorra to win second place in the group. Bili was once again heavily expected to resign as national coach, but instead vowed to renew his contract and remain in charge.
FIFA lists the first official match between the two as a World Cup qualifier match in 1960. However both national teams had already engaged in competitive matches dating back to 1950. The national teams of these two West African countries were formed during the time in which both remained protectorates of the British Empire. At that time the modern-day nation of Ghana was known as the Gold Coast. Nigeria, prior to adopting the national colors of green and white, wore scarlet tops over white shorts and were known as the "Red Devils". The two sides played for several rivalry and tournament cups during this period in which full international competition was barred to them.
In five of its first six World Cup appearances, Nigeria was drawn in the group stage with two-time champion Argentina and is regarded by many fans as having acquitted themselves fairly against the footballing giant. The fixture is the most common in the competition's history involving an African nation. All five matches have been won by Argentina, but all were by a one-goal margin (21 in 1994, 10 in 2002, 10 in 2010, 32 in 2014 and 21 in 2018) and have been tightly contested. To date Nigeria has recorded two wins against Argentina's six, with the victories occurring during friendly matches. Nigeria came close to defeating Argentina in their first meeting, during which they held a lead for some minutes of the match. This was followed by a Confederations Cup match in 1995 which saw Nigeria hold the South Americans to a 00 draw.

There are often fears of particular violence during matches against Serbia, such as the politically-fuelled football riot following the 1990 parliamentary election. This has led to extra security measures being imposed for these matches and general restrictions on traveling fans. There have also been multiple acts of protest against the national team, in response to widespread allegations of corruption within the Croatian Football Federation, and other fan disturbances whose cause is not easily defined. Croatia's Euro 2016 qualifying fixture against Italy in Milan was interrupted due to flares being thrown onto the field by a small section of attendants, which also occurred at a European Championship match against Czech Republic.

The team is controlled by the Croatian Football Federation (HNS), the governing body for football in Croatia. Football is widely supported throughout the country due to the ever-present popularity of the sport. Most home matches are played at the Stadion Maksimir in Zagreb, although other smaller venues are also used occasionally. They are one of the youngest national teams (since formation) to reach the knockout stage of a major tournament, as well as the youngest team to occupy the top 10 in the FIFA World Rankings.

Despite good performances in their first two major competitions, Croatia's qualifying campaign for Euro 2000 was less successful, as they finished third in their qualifying group behind Yugoslavia and Republic of Ireland, and thus failed to qualify. Both fixtures against archrivals Yugoslavia (the rump state which was later renamed Serbia and Montenegro) ended in draws, which prevented Croatia from qualifying for the tournament.
