“The task of our team is to create a pressure comfortable for the Croats to the area. A comfortable area the middle of the field. The more we put pressure there, to put in a difficult situation, the more chance we’ll have. Croatia is a good team, there are many high quality and talented players. Since the time of Euro 2016, they have lost only Darijo Srna, but there is a large selection of players. The result is very important for us. It is necessary to achieve a positive result for us, but showing a good game. I ask my players this. We looked at the physical condition of the children, who have insufficient amount of game practice, and I saw that they were ready to play. Perhaps, if the very right to approach this psychologically, then one of them can properly prepare for one match,” added the coach.
