The Croatian national football team will play their last preparatory match before the World Cup against Saudi Arabia in Riyadh tomorrow at 1 p.m.

“They are a fighting team, we will do our best. We have to go into the match with one hundred percent, there is no other way, of course, I hope for victory,” said coach Zlatko Dalić in the announcement of the match.


He said that he hopes we will use it well and show ourselves in a good light.


“I follow the Saudi league and the national team; they have a good team and coach. A lot has changed since I was here, but there are players that I have coached and whose quality I know. I hope everything goes well with no injuries. I wish Saudi Arabia all the best in the World Cup.


Marcelo Brozović will play because he needs minutes after returning from injury, and there will be no Marko Livaja who has a muscle injury and there is no need to force him,” emphasized Dalić.


Captain Luka Modrić and Ivan Perišić will play, but it is not yet certain how many minutes they will get.
