The Euros are here, and Croatia is ready to make a stand! After a hard-fought qualification cycle, Ante Budimir scored the winning goal over Armenia, securing their spot in Germany. As a striker, there’s no feeling quite like scoring that winning goal and knowing you’re part of the team that will be going to the big stage.
Budimir was thrilled with his performance, saying “I am very happy that I was at this gathering, and for a striker there is no better feeling than scoring a goal.” He also praised his teammates for their resilience and determination in the face of adversity.
Despite facing some challenges during October, Budimir believes that Croatia has always been ready to give their all against any opponent. And he knows that they’ve earned their spot in Germany fair and square.
When asked about his favorite goal in his career, Budimir couldn’t help but mention the one he scored against Slovenia to take them to the Euros. But he knows that this latest goal will be one he’ll always remember.
As for what Croatia can do at the Euros, Budimir says they know what they want and are ready to give it everything they’ve got on the field. And with Josip Juranović joining them in the second half after missing out due to injury, it looks like Croatia is set for another successful tournament.
