I wonder if Iceland will go for it early? Or will they sit back for an hour than start to press. They must chase the result.
I think they'll play their usual game and hope to pinch one in the first hour. It is after all their most reliable path to goal.

If the game is still in the balance after the 60th minute, they'll start to open up.

I'm with Ero and SLF here. I actually thought about the situation of sitting out players immediately following the game. To me it's imperative the core remains intact as much as possible, while those on cards sit out only. If people are worried about healthy players being injured at this stage, then what's the point of this tournament? This is it. If he dies, he dies

Another game day for us

To all the forum hejteri (you know who you are) on here, we know you’ll be watching still #theobsessionisreal and this will be a nice chance to see our B side put some work in. Hopefully you guys all tune in during R16 and hopefully we wear our black kits then too
Ante and Maradona like this.

Još Hrvatska ni propala dok mi živimo,
visoko se bude stala kad ju zbudimo.
Ak je dugo tvrdo spala, jača hoće bit,
ak je sada u snu mala, će se prostranit.

Not sure you’re familiar with the saying here on this board but:

#wearecroatia

And on our day, we can beat anyone. But we do match up better against the Danes [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.xtratime.org/forum/images/smilies/originals/biggrin.gif[/IMG]
We definitely can and i hope we will have 4 "our day" till 16th july! ))

Lineup according to SN:

HRVATSKA: L. Kalinić, Pivarić, Ćaleta-Car, Ćorluka, Jedvaj, Badelj, Modrić, Perišić, Kovačić, Pjaca, Kramarić

So mostly changes, which I agree with. I actually like Modric starting to give us a smooth start to the game. A strong second unit though. Players who could be starting but aren't. Lets see how Corluka does. His lack of speed is worrying. Lets hope the rest has given him some fresh turbocharged legs.

First EEPL Champion.

This is crazy to see how Dalic choices are always in the way of our thoughts or desires. I can't explain but I have the feeling that he knows very well his players and his team, plus for an inexperienced coach at a high level, he showed some really good things and clearly helped our team to win those games. This wasn't only an effort made by the players, as they did under our past coaches.

He added very good line-up, tactics, choices etc...

And I'm really proud of it ! AJMO !!

COYS!

Nice going into this game knowing that top place is almost assured and that the Danes are waiting. It’s not often that both players and fans have the pleasure of simply enjoying a World Cup game.

Croatia are playing dangerously here, controlled the match but then letting Iceland hit us on the counter, Kalinic saved us a few times, we are lucky to be 0-0, really dissapointed with Pjaca and Kramaric , both are CRAP tonight! Our play is more like we played in qualifying rather than the new determined compact Croatia which does not bode well unless we change it up!

Pjaca and Jedvaj at least have an excuse, Kramaric is woeful again, dumb dribbles, bonehead decisions, head down mulac.

And we’re really looking frail on their set pieces, of which there’s been a lot.
