It took Kramarić just 24 minutes to score the deciding goal against Saudi Arabia in Croatia’s final preparatory match before the World Cup kicks off. He created himself a shooting lane and topped it off with a clinical finish, exactly what the world’s top strikers do regularly. But will it be regular with Kramarić in Qatar? Can he find the consistency to string together potentially 7 solid games for Croatia?
It’s no big secret that Kramarić has performed quite poorly so far this season. On top of recently losing his starting spot at Hoffenheim, Kramarić has as many big chances missed (3) as he does goals this season.
Even when in form with Hoffenheim, it hasn’t always been a guarantee that Kramarić will fire on all cylinders with the Vatreni. However, I believe in playing the hottest hand when it comes to our strikers, considering none of the four called up are clear of the rest.
If you were Dalić, do we go Krama YES or Krama NO for Croatia’s big opening match in T-minus 6 days. If not, who starts at the 9?
