Croatia vs Wales: match preview

Croatia, a team with a hard-won reputation for punching well above their weight, take on another in their opening UEFA Euro 2024 qualifier. The Vatreni, ranked No.7 in the world by FIFA, are the odds-on favorites in Group D, whereas Wales are about to take a step into the unknown.

Neither team has played since the World Cup, and while Croatia signed off with a 2-1 victory over Morocco to take third place, Wales bowed out with a 3-0 defeat to England that was scarcely competitive, if at all.

Rob Page installing Aaron Ramsey as Gareth Bale’s successor to the armband hasn’t done much to lift the mood of supporters. They've been behind him all the way, but the lifeless World Cup campaign and Bale's subsequent retirement offered a perfect opportunity for a reset. Instead, this Wales team has the feel of a tribute act to a bygone era. 

Funnily enough, that's the very same criticism that's been levelled at Croatia for several years, but Zlatko Dalic's men keep proving the critics wrong. Even at 37 though, Luka Modric is a different animal to Ramsey who, despite being five years the Madrid man's junior, has played precious little football at club level over the past four years. 

So it is that 21-year-old Brennan Johnson has found himself thrust forward as the team's new saviour, though a groin injury has ruled him out of the clash at Stadion Poljud in Split. With Turkey also in the group and only the top two finishers assured of a place in next summer's Euros, getting points on the board nice and early is vital for both teams.
