In today’s press conference with Joško Guardiola, MARIO PAŠALIĆ commented on the Croatian national team’s defeat against Belgium yesterday, and talked about what to expect before the game against England at Wembley on June 13.
“Our defense last night was better than against the strong opponents in the National League. We are solid and compact. We didn’t create much on the offensive end. We have to work hard to do this in the next five days until England,” Passa Leach began to talk about his impressions of last night’s game. :
“I feel good, I have no problem, the injury has passed. I can participate in the menu, as long as he feels I need the team, I am ready to jump to any position.”
He recalled watching Croatia’s epic victory over England at Wembley in 2007, and last night he dreamed of bringing a new victory to the Croatian team there.
“I watched Croatia at home in Wembley in 2007. I remember how we celebrated. The game in front of us is a big event. This is my first big game. We are opening at the Cult Stadium. I hope to get some The same is true in this game. The game, this is undoubtedly one of the most important games of my career. I hope to look better in that game than against Belgium and achieve better results. I said before However, forward, our game is not good, we have the first specific shots of the last minute “We will try to look better on Sunday.” I did not get the impression of our lack of confidence. “
“Last night I dreamed of scoring a goal for England in the 90th minute at Wembley, and I don’t mind this happening. But it doesn’t matter who will score, it is important for Croatia to win.”
He believed that Croatia performed better in the European Cup than in the preliminary rounds.
“The first goal is to pass the group, and then everything depends on how we will show ourselves in the group and how we will get to the top 16. The question is who we will get from our opponents if we pass. Croatia has quality, I believe We will show in this game that the lack of midfielder to create more opportunities is a coach’s problem. I think each of us should accept the coach’s request. Each of us must put down his name and work hard. For the team, This is the only way we can achieve results.”
“We can look at the European Cup better than during these preparations. The coach is still looking for solutions, testing tactical ideas and practicing defensive interruptions. We still have time to prepare,” he concluded.
