Dejan Lovren has recovered from a ligament injury and will almost certainly miss the European Championships. The initial prediction was that it would take three to six weeks for him to recover, which meant that he would not be able to recover the euro in time.
Dalic has not finally written off Lovren, he will observe the situation until June 1, the deadline for the announcement of the euro passenger list. However, the coach said in an introductory press conference that only 100% ready and healthy players can participate in Euro matches because they are the football players the Croatians need. To be sure, Lovren will not meet the standard within the prescribed period.
“Dejan Lovren feels an old ligament injury that caused him to miss Zenit’s last four games. We will see how he is. I hope he will be fine. We must be optimistic. We are starting to work and the game will be Soon, the boys went through a difficult season, which was not easy for them, but we must rejuvenate them.
“For Philip Uremovich, the problem is the same. The ligament is not a quick solution. It always troubles and does not allow the greatest effort. The risk is to enter the game with two such players. I A decision must be made. Check it out in a few days.”
If Lovren is more likely to miss the euro, then it is almost certain that the dramatic suppression of the tandem will be led by Domagoj Vida and Duje Alai. Tower card (DujeĆaleta-Car) composition. In addition to them, MileŠkorić and Joško Gvardiol are also central defenders. Allegedly, Bishcaan was preparing to keep Guardiola A in the national team before the young Croatia’s rehearsal against Spain, but Dalic refused, and Guardiola was only after the U-21 Euro quarter-finals. Just joined the senior year.
However, on Dalic’s list of 26 players, this opens up space for another player who will travel with the team instead of Lovren. Of course, Marin Pongračić, who was invited by Dalic, is an obvious choice, but mononucleosis and injuries have caused him a lot of trouble this season, so he may not be ideal. select. This season he only played 11 times for Wolfsburg, the last time was more than a month ago. He will sit on the bench for most of 2021.
Among other plugs that have not received a pre-call but can still be called, Tin Jedvaj is the most prominent. He has participated in two major national team competitions (European Cup 2016 and WC 2018). He has played 26 times for the national team. Of course he has enough experience, but this season his performance is even less than that of Pongračić. He played eight times for Leverkusen, including only three in the Bundesliga, losing the continuity of his performance in Augsburg last year.
The Bišćan team has other young people-Martin Erlić played 28 very good games in Spezia, and Mario Vušković also played a good performance in Hajduk. Boschko Sutalo rarely played in Atlanta due to injury, but with his strength, he should be an important player in the U-21 national team. It is not crazy to expect Dalic to touch the three of them.
We can also choose Dino Peric (Dino Peric) of Dynamo, who was invited to participate in the national team during the European qualifiers, and even started a key test from one minute in order to fight for November 2019 Rujevica in the championship against Slovakia. Then he assisted Nikola Vlašić (Nikola Vlašić) with a 1:1 goal. Croatia finally reversed the situation and won 3-1. However, he was subsequently seriously injured and was unable to recover.
