Disappointing. Toothless. Unimaginative.
Croatia played without purpose as the Morocco “bunker” tactic would not break through 90 minutes.
No attack. No movement. No runs up the wings from Sosa or Juranović. Croatia played the entire match like they were up two goals inside the first five minutes. Kramarić did nothing offensively. Kova barely saw the ball. Sosa and Juranović never made any overlap runs up the field. I’m happy to see Perišić and Modrić send some off-target rockets on goal, but at the end of the day, poor opening effort from the reigning World Cup finalists.
Not the end of the world but they will need to pick it up against Canada on Sunday.
