Croatia was considered the weakest team of this group before the EURO started, but they produced already two big surprises. First they have get the victory against Hungary, and in the second game they defeated the World Champions from Netherlands.

It was a close game, with fighting and good defenses, but the best goalkeeper was Tea Pijevic today on the Croatian side. The Netherlands after yesterday’s defeat against Serbia was disappointed but their play was not good enough to take the two points today. The Dutch team was struggling and even they managed to follow up closely with their opponent, but in the decisive moments, they did not have the solutions to seal the game in their favor.

With this victory Croatia is qualified to the Main Round, meanwhile, Netherlands must win against Hungary with a big difference.
