Croatia will play the eighth European Cup final against Spain at 6 pm tomorrow. This most important match since the 2018 World Cup final will have to be played without one of the best scorers and best players in the European Cup.
Just the day before the battle, just before the flight to Copenhagen, HNS announced that Ivan Perisic had contracted the coronavirus.
Therefore, instead of going to Denmark, he went to self-isolation.
Coach Dalic must now find a valuable replacement for key players. He has four choices.
Hajduk’s former coach Zoran Vulic has his favorites.
“For me, Rebic is the first choice to replace Perisic. The left wing is his position. He played very well in Milan, and in the Croatian national team, he is also the best in this position.”
More and more people are advocating Mislav Orsic, saying that after Dynamo and the hat-trick season, he is worthy of Tottenham’s opportunity?
This is not a “give someone a chance” match. This is a competition that carries everything, and only the best and most prepared people can participate. However, the fact is that Olsic had a great season, and if Dalic let him into the team, he would not make a mistake. Nevertheless, my favorite deputy to Perisic is Rebic.
In this case, how much does the coach guide the player’s current state and how much his specific weight guide?
This means the status of many players, his name, and the coach’s spur, the feeling at the moment. The coach knows best how to feel about any team, and Dalic now feels the pulse of the players and is looking for the best solution for the left wing.
Don’t you use your performance in training as a measure?
Training is important, but it is one thing, and competition is another.
When you introduced Perisic to the Hayduk first team in 2005, Sprius did not lie to you, even though he was only 17 years old. After you worked with him alone?
Otherwise, I will remember those preparations in Slovenia, but as Ivan progressed year after year and became what he has been like for a long time, a great international player, I recall more often. Perisic had everything, even then it was obvious. This is of course the situation 15 years later, which is why it is so important to Croatia.
Will his loss tomorrow be irreparable because of this?
