WHAT SHOULD I DO? SCORE 2 FIRST HALF GOALS AGAINST MALTA. Croatia got the job done Wednesday night against a poor Malta side, winning 3-0 with two first half goals from Niko Kranjčar and a late header by substitute Nikola Kalinić. In the end, it was just Malta, but Croatia got the job done injury-free nonetheless. Kranjčar has been spectacular in the last three Croatia games since being benched by Tottenham. Croatia end their 2010 qualifying stint undefeated, only dropping points in a 0-0 draw at home against Greece.
GROUP F STANDINGS
Luka Modrić played well in the first half, drilling a ball of the right post, while striker Mladen Petrić was non-existent in the match. The defense was never tested as Vedran Runje only had to watch a close ball sail over the crossbar. Mario Mandžukić looked poor in his performance, nearly scoring a header that sailed right past the post. Ivo Iličević came on late and didn’t have many touches even though he received a fantastic cross from Darijo Srna inside the box that should have been a solid shot on goal.
All in all, an injury-free win that puts Croatia back top of Group F heading into 2011.
