Zlatko Dalic names a familiar 26-man squad

An experienced Croatia squad selected

2024/05/21 22:18

Zlatko Dalic has announced his final 26-man Croatia squad for this summer’s UEFA European Championships in Germany with nine players on a standby list for any potential withdrawals.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup runners’ up and 2022 FIFA World Cup bronze medallists are still captained by their ever dependable 2018 Ballon d’Or winner, Luka Modric, who has collected 174 caps at the age of 38.

The Real Madrid man is joined by 99-cap Mateo Kovacic and 95-cap Marcelo Brozovic in a recognisable midfield for the Croats that includes Mario Pasalic and Nikola Vlasic.

In attack, former Tottenham Hotspur man and Croatia legend Ivan Perisic, with 33 goals in 129 caps, is listed alongside Andrej Kramaric and Bruno Petkovic.

The very familiar Croatian squad is even that way in defence, too, with Domagoj Vida still selected for the tournament. Josko Gvardiol and Josip Stanisic do freshen up the defence, though, after Gvardiol’s excellent performances at the aforementioned 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Wow, what a strong squad for Croatia! The midfield looks especially promising with Modric, Kovacic, and Brozovic leading the charge. And in attack, Perisic is always a threat. Excited to see them in action at the Euros!

As a football fan, I am thrilled to see Croatia's final squad for the Euros! Modric, Kovacic, and Brozovic make for a solid midfield, while Perisic and Kramaric provide a strong attacking force. Vida's presence in defense is also reassuring. Can't wait to see them in action!
