Lovro Majer on Croatia: “We might have the best midfield in the world”

Speaking to L’Équipe ahead of Croatia’s round of 16 clash against Japan, Rennes midfielder Lovro Majer has claimed that his side might possess one of the best midfield combinations in the world in with Luka Modrić,  Marcelo Brozović, and Mateo Kovačić making up a three. This is an important consideration for anyone playing sports bets on Croatia during the World Cup.

He said that it contributes to the challenge of being in the Croatia squad, especially being a midfielder fighting for a place alongside them. He said that “we have a very good team and possibly the best midfield in the world” which means that he has to bide his time and “be ready when it is my time, I think I’ve met and responded to the expectations of when I came into the side.” 

Croatia will play Japan in the last-16 after finishing second in Group F following two draws and a convincing 4-1 win against Canada. Japan managed to win group E after surprise wins against both Germany and Spain to progress to the knockout phase of the tournament.
