The Croatia midfielder Luka Modric said that the national team of Ukraine is the main opponent in the qualifiers for the 2018 world Cup.
“We are really looking forward to the game against Ukraine. And fan support is particularly important for us. We believe that the fans will be with us in difficult times. Favorit? We respect the national team of Ukraine, they have a very strong team. They are our main rivals in the group,” said Modric at a press conference.
“I hope that tomorrow will be able to demonstrate their best football. However, our game is a team game. No one plays for himself. The result depends on teamwork”
“I’ve played against Ukraine. Our team played well, but failed to achieve a positive result. I hope tomorrow it will work”
“Shevchenko, by far, is the main star of the team. He is the best striker in the history of Ukraine. Now he is doing a good job on the post of coach of the national team”
The meeting between Croatia and Ukraine will start on 24 March at 21:45 Kyiv time.
