Croatian coach Ante Čacic was pleased with the winning entry to the European Championship against Turkey (1: 0), but also urged the Balkan team to quickly forget the opening triumph. “The first match is always very difficult for both teams, but we did it.” After we gave (at 41 minutes) the first match was very hard for both teams, but we did it. “

We were more likely to hold the ball, have had more chances and twice hit the goal.I have to be happy because it is important to start the group victorious.You will encourage you in the next two games, “said Čaččič at a press conference. P> However, he does not overpower and is already thinking of a fight with the selection of Pavel Vrba. “We do not take anything for granted.We do not think we have advanced.
