Tomislav Maric (Wolfsburg ) - 1973 - 29 years old
Average Age of the Croatian NT is 27.8.
Average Age of the first team is 29.1 years old
First team used:
Sure, rapaic, vugrinec and tomas may also get starting place in game or two, but that will not bring the medium age down by a lot.
So guys, we might have a slightly old squad, but remember that Suker was 30 when he won golden boot last WC.... I have to say that this is higher than what I actually thought it would be...
