Brazil and Croatia are going to be head to head in a quarterfinal of the FIFA World Cup on December 9th at Qatar’s Education City Stadium.
The runner-ups of 2018’s FIFA World cup would be hoping to end the ongoing record of not winning over South American nations.
Croatia’s neck-to-neck win over Japan was not that promising. Luka Modric, who is the captain of the team, and the other team members will want to clear their strain of the penalty shootout win over Japan.
Now, both teams are looking good if we talk in terms of the quality of players but only some players may provide the best of them in that match.
Here is the list of 7 players to watch
7. Marcelo Brozovic
Looked very good so far in the world cup, and his passing, tackling, running, and stamina are well-known. Although he is frequently used as a deep-lying playmaker or box-to-box midfielder, he is regarded as a versatile midfielder who can excel anywhere in the middle of the field.
Casemiro is a midfielder with a high work rate who is intellectual, physically powerful, aggressive, and hard-tackling. He may create problems for the Croatian attack.
5. Luka Modric
Despite being 37, he is doing good for his team in this World Cup. Modric is frequently used as a creative player who controls possession from the middle of the field to dictate the game’s pace.
4. Ivan Perisic
The man of important matches also scored against Japan. He can be deadly if left freely. Brazil’s defense needs to keep an eye on him.
3. Vinicius Junior
He was an excellent young talent who showed his importance in Real Madrid and Brazil. He is scoring, proving assists, and building a game for the team. He is just too good.
He showed the world his quality in Brazil’s opening game and also scored an amazing goal (the best goal of the world cup so far). There is no denying that Brazil’s young players are always over the top.
1. Neymar Jr.
Can miss the leading man of the game. All eyes him, as he is playing his last world cup. Many non-Brazilians are supporting Brazil in this World Cup just because of him. Everyone wanted him to win one major trophy.
