Stadion Maksimir, Zagreb (Capacity 35,123)
UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifying begins when the Vatreni host Azerbaijan on Matchday 1
So being that we’re moving down leagues in UNL, we HAVE to finish 1st or 2nd in our group to advance, correct?
The Azeri’s might be the only ‘gimme’ here in terms of qualifiers. We can’t afford to sleep walk through this one and draw. Get a few goals on the board early and throw some subs in and roll to a comfortable victory. I don’t want that last second bullshit we usually do vs. teams below our level.

I think we'll see something like this:
Kalinić - Jedvaj, Barišić, Ćaleta-Car, Vida - Brozović, Rakitić - Perišić, Modrić, Rebić - Kramarić.

But man are we in trouble at that position, I'd have nothing against Darijo making a comeback and helping us these qualifiers.I'm with Ero H on this one. Prefer a young RB get a feel for the NT. Will probably see Jedvaj move to that position in all likelihood.
Probably, though we're missing Šime for the entire qualifiers.If we can’t beat Azerbaijan with Bartolec at RB we’re in trouble.
Leave Jedvaj at RB, Vida, Caleta-Car, Pongaric at CB and Bradaric/Barisic at LB. This backline should be enough for Azerbaijan and Hungary.
