Croatia’s national team coach, Zlatko Dalić, was ecstatic at the press conference following their victory over Wales in the World Cup Qualifier. The match was a tough one, and they had to fight hard to get through the group stage. However, they emerged victorious and will now be going to Germany for the next major competition.
Dalić expressed his relief and happiness at the result, saying that it was a big success and anything more than that was a plus. He also thanked the fans for their support, saying that they were vital to their success.
The coach had high praise for his players, particularly Budimir and Sosa who he felt brought back great value to the team. He also mentioned Marc Pašalić as someone who had been an excellent addition to the team.
Dalić acknowledged that there were things that needed to be fixed in order for Croatia to repeat their success in Russia and Qatar. He said that they needed to be more efficient in scoring goals and creating chances, as well as being more vertical and lethal with their play.
Armenia’s national team coach Oleksandr Petrakov also spoke about the match, saying that Croatia was a very strong opponent and that he replaced Zalaryan at halftime due to injury concerns.
