Croatia’s top scorer in the European Cup, Ivan Perisic, and her best players in the tournament, Luka Modric and Kovacic, have all contracted the coronavirus.
This is why he missed the eighth final of the European Cup tomorrow against Spain. Perisic must be quarantined for ten days, which means that if the Croatian team meets him, he will miss the rest of the knockout stage until the final.
Coach Dalic must now find an irreplaceable replacement.
The following are his options:
Ante Rebic He played well in Milan. Of course it’s better than being a forward. This is where Dalic tried to defeat him in the first two European games. In the final game of the group stage, he replaced Perisic in the last ten minutes and therefore served as a substitute left winger.
Josep Brecarlo Is another player in a natural position. When Perisic played on the right, Dalic tested him against the Czech Republic. However, Brecarlo played, so he was replaced at the end of halftime. In addition, he scored 20 minutes of playing time against England, while he did not play against Scotland.
Luka Ivanosek A player who replaced Brecarlo against the Czech Republic. Although his main position is directly behind the striker, Ivanusek can play a role on both offensive flanks. In the European Cup, he won a half-time victory against the Czech Republic and the final 15 minutes against Scotland.
Mislav Orsic Although Dynamo’s season of life is behind him, he is the last in this position in the national team. In three European Championships, he didn’t play for a minute, and Dali didn’t even have a substitute twice. We remind you that Olsic just performed a hat-trick for Tottenham Hotspur from the left in the Europa League.
