For Balkan youth, it was a meeting that they had to win to dream of promotion to the knockout phase. In the inauguration of the tournament, the Croats lost by 1 to 4 with Rumania. The French, after an incredible match, defeated Englishmen 2: 1.
Kulenović wasted a good opportunity
Croatia's players were well aware of the Friday clash rate but they were not able to do much. The French controlled the events on the field. They were playing defensively and had a player who could use the indecision of the Croatian defenders.
Already in the eighth minute. Great in last season's Ligue 1 striker, Olympique Lyonnais Moussa Dembele jumped over to cross Reine-Adelaide and did not give a chance Josip Posavc. The tricolor definitely did not want to make an effort. The match was usually weak and boring. There was not much. It is enough to say that for 90 minutes the Croats had no clear shot.
They created the best opportunity in just over 20 minutes before the end of the meeting. Intimate bliss was well known to Polish supporters Sandro Kulenović. The Legia Warszawa striker, who scored four goals in the last season of the Lotto Ekstraklasa, resolved his position well, but kicked the beam. Nothing has changed until the end.
They can arrange a tie.
The victory of France means that the team has six points in their account, which is the same as the leader of Romania. The start of Monday of these teams will decide on the promotion for the semi-final of the Euro-21. It seems, however, that it will not be a struggle for the whole. The results in the other two groups were organized in such a way that the draw would mean promotion for both teams concerned.
Curiously, Croatia, which is widely regarded as a place with many young football talents, has never won a European championship until the age of 21. So far, it has two draws and six losses. The young Croats did not avenge their older colleagues, who lost 2: 4 to France last year.
