CROATIA – While many eyes were unsurprisingly drawn to the stunning Swedish footballers’ wives and girlfriends in the run-up to their game against Southgate’s Three Lions squad, their men clearly couldn’t match up to the fitness of their women. With Sweden out of the running, we present the top Croatian players’ Wags – who will hopefully be consoling their blokes come Wednesday night…
Franka Batelic is the stunning girlfriend of captain Vedran Corluka – and she’s a superstar singer in her native Croatia. The 26-year-old beauty rose to fame after winning the first series of Showtime, a reality TV talent show similar to X Factor, in 2007. And it wasn’t the only show she’s won – she came first on the fourth series of Ples sa Zvijezdama – the Croat version of Dancing With The Stars in 2009.
Talented Franka supported Beyonce when she performed in Croatia’s capital Zagreb in 2013, and was Croatia’s entry in this year’s Eurovision with her song Crazy. Although she made it to the semi-final, she came 17th so she didn’t get to perform the tune at the contest’s final in Lisbon.

The other two are: Anita Lovren is the childhood sweetheart of Dejan Lovren and they married in 2012 and Izabel who is often compared to singer Shakira in the Croatian national press.
Croatia will face France for the final of World Cup 2018!
