Croatia 2 – 1 Macedonia ! Game Report
Posted March 24, 2007on:
What a game it has been. Croatia was down a goal the first half. The Macedonians Scored a free kick. Croatia still seemed prtty stable, they controlled the ball nicely but luck wasn’t on their side the first half….
When the second half started the story started to unfold very diffrently.
The Croatians dominated, they had the ball on their side almost the whole time .
There were couple occasions where it seemed Croatia should of been awarded a
penalty or two, but instead we got a free kick, and who else then Free Kick meistro Srna
curved it right to the 90.
After that goal things calmed down, Croatia still had the ball most of the time.
Kranjcar did great, he dribbled the crap ot the Macedonian defenders and had some great
passes and shots on goal. Babic wasted so many opportunities but his touch was beautiful.
Milan Rapaic kind of disappointed me, he didn’t do that much first half, so he was replaced
by Srna who many doughbted but came to be the man of the match. Balaban didnt do that
much shooting on goal, so he was replaced by Igor Budan. Igor Budan did not impress me
that much eather.. He lost the ball on couple occasions, I guess he was kind of nervouse.
Anyway, Srna was doing a great job, he was really everywhere on the field.
He managed to give a sensational pass to Eduardo who whipped the ball right into the net
through the goalys legs.
Overall Croatia proved to be better, they controlled the ball WAY more then the Macedonians.
CROATIA IS STILL 1st- Here are the Group E Standings
