EURO 2020 Qualifier: HRVATSKA vs Azerbaijan - March 21st, 2019

FWIW Jedvaj hasn’t played RB for Bayer since September, plays more frequently at CB and LB. Only 155 min at RB for the entire season at Bayer

Overall no real surprises, Sluga has replaced Letica as the third goalkeeper for now while Leovac returns to the NT due to the lack of left backs, Mitrovic and Vrsaljko out injured. Pjaca and Rog still on the team despite lack of play (especially Pjaca). Other news from Dalic's first press this year:
- About Srna he basically in a nice/professional way said "thanks but no thanks." He wants to use young players and find a long term solution with the right back. The goal is the build a squad towards the European Championships and beyond. Vrsaljko will miss the entire qualifications
- Kalinic is out with a concussion but if healthy he is still the #1
- Petkovic is a type of forward that Croatia currently doesn't have and a decision will be made after Dinamo's matches against Benfica
- Lovren should be ready to play by the Hungary game (he is suspended for Azerbaijan)
- Drazen Ladic scouted the Austrian league closely last few weeks; Pongracic is the closest new candidate for the NT while they also looked at Barac from Rapid Wien. They are also more closely scouting the HNL for depth players

agree Bradaric would have been nice. Ante Rebic is now out of the 2 qualification matches due to injury which surely opens the door for Petkovic?

Yeah that should make way for Petkovic if Rebic is out. Would really like to see Brekalo get a full match for the NT in a qualifier.

Brekalo will almost certainly be a straight swap for Rebić on the right.

Have I missed something in recent weeks? When did Bradarić become a full-back?

He’s a young LB on Hajduk.

I figure Petkovic will now get the call, fully deserves it.

Suho is thinking of Filip the MF at Cagliari (with Srna)
https://www.transfermarkt.com/filip-...spieler/238486

Not Domagoj the LB from Hajduk

That is correct.

Well you just need something to fill the void that's left in your life. Lois has her knitting, Chris has his video games, Meg's learning how to drive, and me, I like the sauce…

only thing I can think of is because it's Azerbaijan at home and we will likely be in possession and attacking basically the whole 90'?

That's now two major injuries...safe to say, he'll never be what he could have been....wish him a speedy recovery and all the best.

We will need to score early...and end this one quickly.

Remember the Kosova game...all one way traffic but no goals...then panic set in...until a late winner.
