In just a few days, Borna Sosa (Borna Sosa) experienced something more exciting than his entire career so far. News that he will acquire German citizenship and play for the country where his mother was born instead of Croatia broke out in the Croatian and German media.
He explained his choice as a rational decision by the 23-year-old player. He no longer wants to wait for an opportunity in the Zlatko Dalic national team. Only four days later, a complete reversal occurred.
Unless there is a new unexpected turnaround, the German Federation ignores the main rules of FIFA, and Souza’s story in the German national team is over. The Croatian public has been polarized on this issue, and this controversial issue is particularly important-should Sosi be allowed to play for Croatia again? In a large-scale index poll, nearly 70,000 votes were received, and the results were almost equal. This means that this question is still very interesting. Public opinion is divided. About 53% of voters will never call Sousa a national team again, and 47% of them believe that he should not be expelled from the group forever.
This question is not only about sports and football, but also has a political element. Broadly speaking, the answer to the question of the national team representing someone is. Should Sosi be given a second chance after all?
One of the main reasons for Souza’s dissatisfaction is that he has not yet participated in the A draft for the first time. Although the national team is well covered in the positions of Barišić and Bradarić, the truth is that the opportunities, and many of them, were given to a relatively unknown Dario Melungak before Sosa. (Dario Melnjak). He is a 28-year-old defender from the Turkish League. He is an excellent player, but he has less potential than his competitors in this position. However, things are not that simple.
Sosa is a key player of the young national team. Most of the match dates coincide with the senior national team. There are not many opportunities to invite Stuttgart defenders to participate in the A-level trials. The source confirmed to Index that Dalic wanted to give Sosi a chance to play against Malta in March, but Igor Biskan insisted that Sosa was suspended for the first two games due to the red. He was against England in the European group stage. The last game. card.
This may have reason to raise the question whether it makes sense to invite players who have already participated in top football matches to join the young national team. For them, this is not a motivation for progress, but it is a question of the national league sports strategy. It’s not just a senior selector for the national team.
Sosa could have had a chance in the A national team, but should bear in mind the fact that he missed 24 league games in Stuttgart due to injury in the first two seasons, half of which were in the second quarter. Its share has only increased in the last six months. According to the league’s internal assessment, the U-21 team needs more of this share. His statement stated that he couldn’t wait for an opportunity when he was 23 years old, so it makes sense to compete at the highest level for three years instead of six months.
In the whole situation, the biggest crime lies in HNS, because it is obvious that someone in the chain is not doing their job. Dalic claimed that Ivica Olic followed and contacted Sosa and informed him of the plan. The other members of the HNS team have been silent for several days, although it is clear that someone has failed, so Croatia has almost lost a player who might one day become outstanding.
Today, Zlatko Dalić confirmed for Soss that Sossa will not be invited to participate in the European Championships.
Coach Dalic said: “I have nothing to forgive him, I don’t blame anything. But considering the story that happened, he will not appear on my euro list.” The national team and one place.
We found that Sosa should have participated in the European Championships, but Dalic did not want to argue now and asked us not to ask him this question.
“The Euro list is my list. It is entirely my decision. I know what the list looks like. Only three of me know-Vedran Corluka, Drazen Ladic and Iraq. Ivica Olic (Ivica Olic). No one found my list. Before the official announcement, except Borna Sosa (Borna Sosa) did not know him, I will not decide on his own in the Croatian national team. In the future, I hope Sosi will continue to play well. This is the first step. The second step is for him to tell us that the Croatian Football Association will participate.
The menu is clear: “I collapsed, things have changed, and Sosa will not appear on the euro list.”
