Badelj brings something that the other MFs don't in that he's calming presence in a more defensive minded midfieldHe will probably get cut before the final squad selection...again. He has much better chances this time than 2014, 2016 and 2018 at least. He should be above Badelj and Rog for consideration
The kind of player he is he shouldn't be competing for a spot with those two. I think he'll make it this time but I don't see where he fits in, he's not a winger and those central spots are locked.He should be above Badelj and Rog for consideration
I read an article saying Sucic would be there playing at Redbull but they have a Hungarian who is young and really good blocking his place now. Once they sell this Hungarian kid I think you will see Sucic will get much more playing time at redbull. There coach spoke very highly of Sucic and wants to get him playing time with red bull even if the Hungarian kid is still there.Sučić might be a good prospect but we have to be realistic. Salzburg is a club that has no fears in playing kids and they've decided to loan him out to a second division club. That should tell us he's not ready yet, at least not for any serious NT talk.
Perišić has been huge for us, along with Luka our best player between 2013-2018, but make no mistake Luka is the foundation on which our team is built. Neither will be easy to replace but when they're gone we'll miss Luka more. I didn't see HS's post but he's right, once Luka is gone our whole approach will have to change.
