Did not notice who but Badelj when he got in seemed really too passive in the midfield and he was the one in charge of the guy that took the shot.

Horrific maneuver, absolutely no need to play the ball there.

Oh well, tri boda!

Yeah, Badelj got totally undressed there by some journeyman hack Welsh guy...and Badelj had just come on so he was fresh..and had no excuses to get burned like that...

Though a bit of bad luck as the shot changed direction hitting Vida...

The build up though, was a bad give away by our guys...

Should have been a stroll in the park up 2-0 but we made it difficult for ourselves not closing out the game.

Badelj doesn't play much for Lazio and i thought he would lose his place in the upcoming calls.

Hungary just won in Azerbaidjan 3-1.

It is the first match won away in this group.

It seems like the 4 teams wales slovakia hungary and ours are able to win the games at home and win in azerbaidjan.

We will have to make a result either in wales or in slovakia. At least take a point.

Need to focus till the end.

I don’t know about that, the Vida one was also terrible and he didn’t even touch the Wales guy

The win will overshadow this and 90% of the people won't care but completely agree with this. I know Osijek are going to sell him and a NT cap will increase his value but shit like this continues no matter who the manager is, also Petkovic back in March. If the game against Hungary is in Split except Caktas to play

Pasalic, its analyzed in this vid by the same guy bitching about the Skoric sub


He also defends Kramaric, more for his movements/positioning

Good win and performance if you ask me. We controlled pretty much 99% of the match and Wales only scored off a fluke goal. With some better finishing it could have been 5-1.

Kramaric sure is a different player to Mandzukic but it is what it is. We just don't have anyone better at the moment.

We are so used to see Modric at a certain level that his performances became normal but what a game he had yesterday!
If he stays fit i would like to see him playing even the world cup 2022 seriously like Niko Kovac at euro 08.

Good win overall. Some shaky moments with long balls to bale and throw-ins again but other then that they controlled the game. First 20 minutes for the second half was exceptional. Poor kovacic can't get a break as he had a sure goal taken away because of Kramaric inexcusably going off side. Modric once again bossed the midfield. Man when he retires its going to be some huge shoes to fill.

Hungary won against Wales.
If they win at Home against Slovakia and Azerbaidjan they will have 15 even without count their games away vs us and wales.
This group is really tricky.
We will have to be serious against Slovakia in both games.

Yeah our loss to Hungary isn’t looking that terrible now.

I still think they will drop points but it’s in our hands can’t control the what other teams are doing.
