Teams: Hajduk Split, Derby County
so what are some of the friendly matches coming up? I read about discussions with the Dutch for them to come to Zagreb. I also see that a match at home against Denmark is also almost 100% certain. The other possible games which I read were Portugal home, Belgium away, Greece away and the Czech Republic, not sure where that would be played
Bilic wants to Dutch to act as the Germans and wants to find a team similar to Poland and Austria
I think it's crucial to set up important friendly's rather than just fill-ins, which happened in the last three tournaments.
Before WC 2002 we played a bunch of softies (Hungary, BiH, Slovenia)
Before Euro 2004 they really only had one true test Denmark away, the rest were softies with Macedonia away, Slovakia home
Before WC 2006 we played that Carlsberg Cup with a HNL All-star team, Austria away, Iran home, Poland neutral venue and Argentina neutral venue
