We are certainly looking good with both Bradaric and Sosa as future LB options, both are much much bettter than say Barisic, Meljnjak or Pivaric/Leovac. The future looks bright for that position and decent defence with Caleta/ Pograncic and Gvardiol hopefully. Dalić seems reluctant in trusting the new guys yet, for me the selection of Vida instead Caleta Car v Franc is an example of that. However, who on earth can replace our maestro Luka post Euro next year ??More positives than negatives. Other than Vida and Barisic I felt most played relatively well. All the subs were good, felt Brekalo, Kovacic were quite good.
Vida is done I don’t understand why Caleta-Car wasn’t in? He’s just better and he played against the Swedes too? Also at LB I watched Sosa yesterday he was very good once again! I can’t say I watched him much at Stuttgart but from the U21 he will give us more than Barisic without a doubt. Barisic is fine with the Hungary’s of the world but not against elite competition. We played arguably our 3/4 best option in that position this past week?
