Croatian Football Federation president, Davor Suker: "Vrsaljko played with half a knee against England, was a warrior"
At the end of Croatia-England game, Davor Suker, president of the Croatian Football Federation, went down to the dressing room to congratulate the team.
“I told Modric how much he ran but I knew that Vrsaljko was playing with “half” of his knee. I went down to the dressing room to congratulate him who was a warrior, just like his teammates. That is why we won. We have quality because Croatian football always invests. We have done so heavily in the youth sector. Our population is only four and a half million and so we have to use our resources well. We are looking for players throughout our country.”
