Croatia was defeated by Belgium with a score of at least 1-0 in the last friendly before heading to the European Championship. The only goal in the game was scored by Romelu Lukaku.
Mateo Kovačić was the first person to appear in front of the camera on Nova TV.
“I think we started the game quite well and scored a meaningless goal. There are many good aspects, but there are also areas for improvement. I think we are ready for the Euro,” Kovacs Qi said, adding:
“We missed the players in the backstage. Luca and I withdrew in some cases. Belgium deservedly won, but we have something positive. The match between Broz and Luca suits me and we should rotate a bit, but This is good. The first game in the Euro will be crucial and he can be the trigger for a better game.”
After Kovacic, Bruno Petkovic appeared in front of the camera.
“We may have the best chance to tie the score in the final stage. The game will look better, but nothing will change significantly. I think we have improved compared to the last game. It is clear that we have every game. It’s all getting better,” Petkovic said. Added:
“I am adapting to a new role and a slightly different position, but I think I am heading in the right direction. I think I can show more, I am not afraid of new challenges, I am not afraid of England.”
