Mario Ivanković, the coach in Slobodan Starčević’s technical staff, says about this national team action:
“Preparations are proceeding according to the set plan. Fortunately, we do not have any problems, cancellations or injuries. All the players are ready and doing a great job in training. We invited a lot of players and we have three matches ahead of us in which each of them will get playing minutes. We have a lot of work ahead of us and we have to prepare the team for the qualifications as well as possible. Here we will have the opportunity to see who we can count on in the future. Our goal is to make a step forward compared to the previous period, and we have subordinated everything to achieving success in the end.”
The young national team players will travel to Velika Gorica tomorrow. The match with Malta is scheduled for 4th June, and two matches with Qatar are on 7th and 11th of this month.
