Worlds Apart

‘Football connects people’ – Legendary Croatian footballer Davor Suker

With Russia and Croatia ready to face off in the World Cup quarterfinal, Croatian football legend and president of the Croatian Football Federation Davor Suker shared his thoughts on the game. 

The Croats are “hungry to win,” Suker said. One shouldn’t underestimate Croatia, because “we can control the ball,” he went on. “Today who controls the ball more can have more time to score, more time to play,” Suker said.

In the meantime, Russia is “very tough” and “well prepared.” Suker predicts “we [will] have a tough game, I mean 50-50.” 
“Statistically, it’s one of the best World Cups, more goals outside, the ball is quicker. The shoes, the grass, the media, everything is better than in the past,” Suker also said.
