Keep up the wonderful work , I read few content on this web site and I think that your blog is real interesting and has got circles of good info .
krystal called it at half-time…2-1. quite the attractive prognosticator she is.
mi nismo sto smo bili u svjetski nogomet. we arent that good guys lets face it. no top class forward anymore or goalkeeper. our midfield is the only thing that keeps us going. just sad how far we have fallen since that loss to turkey.
maybe I'm in the minority, but I think its better if Israel win, as they will be super motivated against the Greeks + we play them at home. That will be a tough match though, we definetely need to improve our play. We showed good character to fight back but we still saw problems (slow play, lack of off-the-ball movement, no pressing). We need to sort out our defense, we basically conceded twice to Georgia and they had 2 shots on goal. Corluka is not a reliable CB
Well I will do my review here. My blackberry doesn't have a video card so no footage for me. Scorpio was as packed and loud as if it was Euro 2008 all over game. Also I haven't experienced a celebration since the Germany win. People were going wild with beer going in the air and I was literally yelling non stop for two minutes so now I have a soar throat singing my heart out. I had my Polish friend Alex with me, my cousin from New Zealand Tony, four Croatians girls, and our good friend Marco and Tomislav. It was a great crowd and all I was missing was CSR's own Ivica Peros!!!
As for the game, it was the most depressing 70 minutes of football I have watched since England 5-1 demolition of Croatia. It just seemed like they lacked the drive and will. This is why Croatia needs players like Rakitic and Kranjcar playing. Croatia is scared to shoot outside the box, they weren't taking any cracks. With guys like Kranjcar and Rakitic, this team is much more dangerous. Rip the team all you want, but those two are needed and I am happy they got the three points. Anyone see Niko in the crowd, it was funny seeing him just looking depressed. Srna is really annoying, I really can't stand him. Other than some nice free kicks, his crosses were awful including a few that just went absolutely nowhere. Simunic and Corluka were good but don't understand why not Lovern. Vuko wasn't needed, he was just a waste out there because he had no ambition to move the ball or attack.
Dujamovic has shown more will to attack from that great pass to Kalinic against the Czechs for a goal then today's game. It's just amazing how Klasnic was the guy to start that because he has been so forgotten about Slaven. It's great to see him back and creating chances, not sure if he will get another call up but no way did he hurt himself. Jelavic was really disappointing, he nearly got in a fight and just lacked that killer instinct. I hope he doesn't turn into Petric where he's great on club level but terrible for national team.
Persic was lively which I am happy about but he does need to grow more. He gets too excited sometimes, but I wasn't mad at all. Manzo finally looked like he belonged, not sure if he is starting material with the stars come back but he is worthy of a bench spot. For all the talk of him only being able to score on close range, we shall see. It's a bit alarming but many strikers are like that nowadays.
This was a huge three points without the likes of Kranjcar, Rakitic, and Petric. Hell maybe even Olic could have been used for this. I don't know who's man of the match, maybe Eduardo but he missed an easy one with that header. Still had a run that would make Gareth Bale even jealous. I am not upset at all, they just need to regroup and get their injury talent. LET'S GO MALTA!!! Israel already up on Latvia, that September 6th game against them is going to be really huge. It's a good thing Croatia beat them on the road.
Leave it to the beautiful Croatian girls to correctly predict the outcome.
