The new regime is here. Štimac is out, the Kovač brothers are in. And only Iceland stands in the way of Croatia not playing at the World Cup in Brazil next summer. Here’s a little ‘Mare i Kate’ remake sending Štimac on his way and welcoming the Kovač brothers into a tough role with Brazil at their fingertips.
Hopefully we never have to send the Kovač brothers home the way Štimac left, well deserved or not. Time will tell but they have to be happy with the Iceland draw, even though the immense pressure around the team to go through remains.
