If anything I fear he will give the nod to the questionable call-ups from the qualifying (Skoric, Melnjak etc.) because they are "part of the team" already :rolleyes: Maybe even Jedvaj makes a return because he is starting to play for Leverkusen now

The 23 outfield players you list I also would take. But I don't know if Dalic is able to manage 26 players. As he has had difficulties with the previous squad, which had more then 23 players, and some players unhappiness with their playing ti time. I suspect Dalic would of preferred the competition left at a 23 man squad

At this point in the season any injury is a potential Euro threatening one, Vlasic and Barisic both got injured this week, Vlasic seems to be ok after some fears he would miss the Euros, Barisic was subbed off due to a thigh injury, no update until tomorrow probably

Livakovic
Lovren Caleta Car Gvardiol
Brozovic
Vrsaljko Modric Kovacic Perisic
Petkovic Kramaric

With the same system used by Conte at Inter this 11 could do well.
Gvardiol probably doesn't even make the roster (maybe has a small shot with the 26 man squad) and I don't like dropping Vlašić to get an extra CB on the pitch

also Šime has only played 12' in the last 2 months for Atletico so unfortunately I don't know that we can count on him to be playing 90' as a wing back in a 352... and we don't have a natural RWB backup for him

Think this is all clickbait nonsense honestly

But if it is true then it’s his choice, can’t do much about it other than blame Dalic for picking guys like Melnjak over him considering in the past they went out of their way capping guys like Halilovic

I agree with you on blaming Dalić BUT the capping rules have changed since Halilović so it's not as easy to lock down a player, especially a young player. Then again he is 23 now so he should've been capped and locked


HS can you answer why he is eligible to switch? he played at an official tournament (u21 Euros... or does not that not count?) in 2019 and he was not eligible to play for Germany until he was > 21 (as he is just now getting naturalized and a passport at age of 23)

This is Dalic’s fault. His job is to pick the best players or team. Melnjak isn’t even a top 5 LB for Croatia? He’s clearly demonstrated enough this season that even the Germans want him. And with the new rules he and the federation has to have these things in the back of their heads. This isn’t one tournament problem but you could’ve ruined a spot for ten years?

I still think this is a ploy to force the issue. But Dalic has been all about the old guard and cohesion wouldn’t be suprised he won’t be called up

I read his mom is born in Germany so he will be eligible once he gets the passport, it’s not a naturalization process like Olmo would have been for example

Sosa is like Karacic who was easily able to switch to Australia because of a parent

Dalic's response

Svatko ima pravo birati za koga će igrati i to je sve što ću reći - kazao nam je Dalić u kratkom telefonskom razgovoru, prije nego je Savez pustio službenu izjavu našeg izbornika.

"Borna Sosa je na našem radaru, redovito pratimo njegove nastupe u klubu i on je sigurno na širem popisu kandidata za A reprezentaciju. Povrh toga, bio je aktivan član mladih hrvatskih reprezentacija s kojima je postizao uspjehe, što je najbolji put do A reprezentacije. Od Borne očekujemo da nastavi s dobrim igrama u Stuttgartu i na taj se način još više približi A reprezentaciji. Naravno, svaki igrač ima pravo odlučiti koju zemlju želi predstavljati, ako ima takve opcije", poručio je putem HNS-a izbornik Vatrenih.

Crap response. Dalic is really frustrating the crap out of me at the moment. "He's on our radar?" Yeah great and he's also on Dalic's extended squad. Brilliant. He should be starting over Barisic at this point. Nah lets keep calling up some nobody from the Turkish league.
