I think we know how to deal with these circumstances, but we need privacy and peace to prepare matches. “.

How do we play against Spain?

“He is really versatile, he has power, energy, strength and our assessment is that we need him on the left flank, because he can make an offensive contribution and close everything again. The last few months confirm this and accept anything. He is a player of the present and the future, undoubtedly one of the best defensive players in the world, if not the best.”

Croatia’s European Cup ambitions

“We haven’t done as well in European competitions as we did at the world championships and my ambition is to move on from the group, so we’ll take it step by step. Many national teams have the quality to be able to look forward to reaching the final. We are only in 12th place in the ranking, so there is no pressure, but we will go with patience and calm down. No matter what happens, I believe in this team, we have a mix of young and old, that’s why I believe in who we are and what we do.”
