I don't think the manager needs to explain that at a WC...Kale should know better...after his poor season he really should have no complaints...personally, I think this could work out for us because Dalić will now be forced to use Pjaca off the bench probably more than he intended...and now there's no chance of seeing Mandžo and Kale on the pitch together which is a big positive.

Luka tracks back . Thats what he does. Its hard wired into him.

I see Kovacic and Modric playing as defensive mids with this lineup.
The idea is Kova will mark Messi...but this might not be an option if the Argies play a 4-4-2...so we'll wait and see..

Just to check on the rules here, if one of our strikers gets injured does that mean we only have 1 striker until the rest of the tournament?

Perhaps Kale didn't dedicate the win to the branitelji?

Should be gone if what's implied is true. Can't wait to hear Maradona's take as I know he's a fan.
THIS is a selfish act, where a guy doesn't see his own self but puts himself in front of the team. Do you guys really think this is healthy or even a credible move when your teams needs 100% positive and supportive attitude?

I'm not the guy that sits on his hands and says nothing, I've been fairly vocal about Kalinic and I guess I can say this doesn't surprise me. Did I think he was this selfish...NO, but based on what I have seen from the guy, he's in lala land! Who, in their right mind, would consider themself over the health of the team...AT THE BIGGEST TOURNAMENT IN THE WORLD!

Kalinic is a shitty sub in Milan...and I don't ever wanna hear about his cheeky goal vs Spain in the Euro's, BIG DEAL! He just wrote himself off and I truly believe this will hurt his career going forward!

Funny how the usual suspects were in hiding after we won, but some selfish pos bails on his teamates, and they are here immediately with their lame comments...

I realize those comments gave you an erection, but Dalic's blatant, cheap populism is kind of sad at this point. Really, who the **** says that in 2018, with the current state of the nation? #neverforget

He definitely knows his base...

this thread has gotten nasty quick...

wouldn't it be nice if all Cros were united at least during the WC ?
bit sad really.

I just read that Kalinic said he wasnt ready to enter the mtach against Brazil, and wasnt ready to train. 3 strikes and youre out I guess.
