They always score against the run of play it is nothing new. Fool me once fool me twice thing but they fool us 10 times and will foul us as long as we don't put the fresh legs on the pitch.Really good second half. France scores against the run of play. Kovacic and Brekalo made a difference as did Budimir
They are infuriating yes but we give them ourselves the weapons to kill us. You don't have the right to play this team with the backline and defensive midfield that started the match tonight. From 5 players only 1 should be there against this kind of opposition.And we played really well ... and we lost.... again , deja vu anyone? France are one of the most Infuriating teams, they hang on and score out of nothing ( bar the first 20 minutes) , but their players are so aletic and fast it’s ridiculous, however Griezmann and Pogba are some of the most arrogant and annoying pricks in football I can’t stand them. Second half was totally dominant yet we lost so not much blame on the team they did their all. Don’t understand Badelj in lineup, also Dalić please bring in some young blood, Bradaric, Caleta Car, Moro, Majer, Sutalo to name a few obvious choices for positions we are in need of upgrading.
I doubt any of the U21 players will be called in November with them having important must-win qualifiersalso Dalić please bring in some young blood, Bradaric, Caleta Car, Moro, Majer, Sutalo to name a few obvious choices for positions we are in need of upgrading. As Vlasic, Brekalo and Bradaric have already proven young blood , pace and energy are urgently neeeded for the Vatreni.
I don't mind Badelj. Good decision maker albeit at the expense of speed. I would keep Modric until his 40's lol, these kids are nowhere near his IQ levelThe performance was actually decent, bad starting lineup and I think Vida is done at this level (though he will probably start the next match with Lovren suspended). Barisic is not a player for top opposition, but still better than Melnjak if that means anything, Badelj is also done too. This team will have problems once Modric retires. Petkovic is becoming like Sammir I'm afraid unless somebody wakes him up, he has flashes of brilliance but doesn't work hard enough. Uremovic is the big winner of this month's game along with Brekalo
Some strange calls by the ref, that France corner where they almost scored is a good example. Lovren is starting to annoy me as well on the same play he whiffed on a clearance and seems to be too busy acting 'hard' on and off the field than defending
