Croatia was considered maybe the biggest outsider at the beginning of the EURO, but now after three victories in the groups everybody was waiting with excitement how they will do in the Main Round. And Croatia did not disappoint in the first match against Romania either.

Romania started much better, was in lead 5-8, but Croatia worked themselves back into the game again and equalized 8-8, then making an 8-1, was in 14-9 lead. Blazevic, Jezic, Kalaus, and Micijevic were the main leaders in the attack, in defense Pijevic in the goal and Debelic in the central defense caused hard minutes for Romania. Neagu did not have a very good match here at the EURO yet, but she fights and always tries to help her team. Today Dedu and Buceschi tried to reach up to the expectations, but this was not enough. Croatia took their fourth victory today, one sensation after another the team of Neead Sosteric has produced, with a B-team, as they are missing the whole line from Podravka, staying home with covid19 infection.
