FIFA World Cup 2014 stamp from Croatia



Date of Issue : 12 June 20014

To commemorate FIFA World Cup 2014  Croatian Post issued a beautiful stamp on 12 June 2014. Football ball Stamp has been issued in 9-stamp sheetlet with one label .


It was in England that the football was born but in Brazil where it lives in its richest and most natural form. Brazil is the host country of the 20th FIFA World Cup, for the second time in history, once again after 64 years. The Football World Cup 1950 in Brazil was remembered after thrilling and dramatic ending with tragic consequences. In the last game of the tournament Uruguay won against the absolute favourite 2: 1 (0: 1) in front of 200,000 spectators!


The defeat created despair for the whole nation – even about thirty self-murders were committed! Since that time the Brazilians are the only ones who have won five titles (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002) – and once again all roads take us to Maracana, that cult place of this populous country and the world’s football.
