Ivan Perisic, a midfielder for Croatia, claimed that the team is extra driven to win today’s 2022 World Cup match against Canada.
Recall that after Canada’s spirited loss to Belgium in their World Cup opener on Wednesday, manager John Herdman admitted he ordered his team to “go and “eff” Croatia” in an on-field huddle.
Coach Zlatko Dalic responded to the situation by saying: “The Croatia team deserves respect from everyone. By the way we played and behaved at the World Cup, we have demonstrated that.
We came in second place overall and in the world. We respect everyone equally, so we demand that the teams we play against respect us. It is not respectful to use language in this manner.
I second the head coach, and I can’t wait for the game to start, said Tottenham midfielder Perisic, who was seated next to Dalic.
