"You don't have to be wise to understand that this match is crucial for the 1st place in the group. It;a a game between two very good opponents. They are almost equal. Whoever wins will be a surprise to me. When a player is injured, the team must not collapse, even if he is the best like Bogdanovic for Croatia. Injuries happen in sports. The team has to find the player that will guide the rest of the players when things don't go well. Croatia has a lot of talent and the opponnt doesn't know to whom to focus on. We managed to win against Slovenia but this is not enough against stronger teams" the retired center said.
