The runners-up of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Croatia will be going up against Spain in a game of the UEFA Nation’s League on Thursday.
Croatia have seen some of their important players retire. Mandzukic and Subasic have left the squad and the team has since then looked a bit tender. Even though the core of the team is still retained, they aren’t as fluid as they were before. Coach Zlatko Dalic will be looking to have another squad of players who not only are ready to prove their worth but also finish the project that started.
Meanwhile, Spain are on the course of becoming the elite team in world football. After disaster after disaster in recent years, the team is finally performing at the highest potential. One of the biggest reasons for this uptick is down to new manager in Luis Enrique. This team is fantastic again, and have all the firepower in the world to win any game.
