Luka Modrić is now a global football icon. With that comes the global spotlight – both on and off the field. In Bleacher Report’s latest satire cartoon – The Champions – the 2018 FIFA Best Player of the Year gets a makeover as the ‘cool’ kids in world football jaw at him for his lack of style.

 

 

You know you’ve made it in life when they make a cartoon of you.

 

 

“You just offended all of Croatia.” -Modrić

    Dalic picked his squad;

    No Borna Sosa on the list. I guess he really liked what he saw out of Milic last go around. I guess that Borna Barisic is still recovering from injury.

    Interesting to see if Kramaric or Pjaca start since neither have been regular starters for their respective clubs. Since we have 4 high caliber CMs, I think we should just start them all in a midfield diamond with Rebic and Perisic up top;
    — Rebic — Perisic
    —-Rakitic
    Kovacic- Modric
    —-Brozovic
    It might be too late to start mixing it but why not play only the guys that are in form and take advantage of our plethora of midfield talent.

    I’m actually interested to see the next round of league if nations games vs Spain….i think finally there will be some motivation for them to compete and players are rounding back into form a bit from the world cup

    @Andrej L
    I’m almost sure that Borna Sosa is injured right now.

    @The truth
    I really hope so. We beat Spain with a half rotated squad in 2016. Both teams are slightly different now, but Spain’s team is really not as impressive as most pundits make it seem. England is easily one of the most overrated teams in the world. I know we hype up our players, but they know they can beat both of these teams. It’s just a matter of whether they put the effort in or not.

    Both Bornas are injured.

    Borna Sosa won a starting spot on Stuttgart and he has been playing well for the U21s. There is no doubt in my mind that he would’ve been called up (and possibly started) had he not beein injured.

    Borna Barisic has been injured for a couple weeks now at least. I think Filip Benkovic is out too, which is a shame as he has an amazing start to the season on loan at Celtic apparently with all these fans posting these crazy advanced stats about him.

    Those three guys are necessary for these upcoming Euros to help shore up our defense. Vida, Lovren and Vrsaljko and (to a lesser extent) Caleta-Car are the only defenders who have been called up that I trust to play at the back for us right now.



  5. Maminjo says:

    Spain is under pressure to come out with a result against us.

    They choked in the World Cup, and then came out very strong in the Nations League by winning in England and killing us in Spain.

    They looked like the great Spain of old, and got the fans excited again. They were looking like the runaway winners of the group and an early favorite to win this first Nations League trophy…then they lost to England in Spain.

    Losing to Croatia in Croatia is also not out of the realm of possibility and it will eliminate them from the Nations League.

    Not that the trophy mattered that much, but by winning a tough group so quickly made Spain look unbeatable again and would have been great momentum going into the Euro qualifiers.

    If they lose to us, they likely won’t progress. That’s a huge buzzkill, considering they were on cloud 9 less than two months ago.



  6. Andrej L says:

    appreciate the update boys, i was curious because i think most of us expected Sosa to be on the squad



  7. Mitkovic says:

    Sosa is from Scarface. Crvena Zvezda 2 Liverpool 0 is a very fishy result thats like Dinamo Zagreb defeating Real Madrid or Barcelona even Manchester City.
