Ivan Rakitic’s oppression has taken its toll on Barcelona and Croatia

Ivan Rakitic’s oppression has taken its toll on Barcelona and Croatia”

Meanwhile, England manager Gareth Southgate said his side had improved since losing to Croatia in the World Cup semifinals.

Who do you think should replace the Croatian at Barcelona if he misses their matches?

Croatia, the 2018 World Cup runner-up, has struggled since its success in Russian Federation and sits in last place with one point-though it could still top the group if it beats Spain and then England on Sunday.

"I think that both teams tactically are always well prepared and both teams have a brilliant opportunity to get to a semi-final".

For me, the last two months have been really positive. We've added more depth to the squad in terms of young players and competition for places.

"We have learned with every experience that we've had".

At first the midfielder was considered a doubt for the match against England but it's been decided by the player, Croatia and FC Barcelona that it'd be best for him to return to Barcelona so he can undergo tests. "Unfortunately, we are going to play without him".

"We want healthy players and Ivan in this moment is not 100 percent ready". "He is a fantastic talent".

The Liverpool defender was in a boisterous mood after beating Spain on Thursday, blowing Group 4 wide open, revelling in an elbow on Sergio Ramos, calling Spain's players 'p******' and warning England they would be next.

The match with Croatia is one we're really looking forward to.

They've already done that in getting to a semi-final but they can't sit there and say we were the team along with 1990 who got to the semi-final. We've got huge respect for them, their players, their coach, their mentality.

'But also we've got belief that we're improving, that we're learning all the time and people can see how hungry we are to succeed so we've got great motivation ahead of tomorrow's match'.
