FIFA World Cup 2022 Croatia Team Preview
Croatia’s most dangerous players are Ivan Perisic and Luka Modric, both of whom have more than 100 international caps.
Modric, Perisic, Dejan Lovren, Domagoj Vida, and Marcelo Brozovic will be among Dalic’s starters.
Croatia and Real Madrid both continue to rely on Modric as their key midfielder.
Despite the loss in effectiveness of several older players throughout the season, RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol provides another option in the defensive line.
Dalic has won over his seasoned players by promoting from within and investigating options in Europe
Vida might be replaced by Josip Juranovic and Borna Barisic, and Gvardiol could replace Sime Vrsaljko and Ivan Strinic.
Our Prediction about Croatia at FIFA World Cup 2022
Croatia finished second overall in Russia, having gone unbeaten in their group stage matches against Argentina, Nigeria, and Iceland. In the championship game, they defeated France in a shootout.
Luka Modric intends to end his World Cup career on a high note as he approaches his 38th birthday in October.
Croatia, Morocco, and Canada, all of which qualified for the competition twice, are among the underdogs in Belgium’s effort to win the entire tournament. They have an 8/13 probability of advancing through the first round in their remaining fixtures.
If Croatia gets to the semifinals, Luka Modric may meet Cristiano Ronaldo, an old comrade who will be playing for an uninterested German group. If Brazil wins a replay of the semi-finals against France, Zlatko Dalic’s team will face Brazil in the World Cup finals.
The victor of Group E, which consists of Germany and Spain, will very definitely be your opponent in the round of 16. This is especially true if you come in second place in Group F. If the Croats overcome this hurdle, the other two semifinal teams will be Brazil and the Netherlands, or Argentina, led by Lionel Messi.
In seven qualifying games, Andrej Kramaric scored twice and assisted twice. The Hoffenheim player has contributed 11 assists and eight goals to the Bundesliga since the start of the previous season. He scored twice and assisted once against Bayer Leverkusen earlier this season.
With the exception of the 1-0 Nations League victory against Denmark in June, Zlatko Dalic has usually employed a 4-3-3 system this year (2022).
