Our players are great fighters: Zlatko Dalic


“The cycle has ended, and I keep to my word,” said Tite quoted in The Guardian. “There are other great professionals that can replace me.” “When their goalkeeper is the best player on the field, the game is talking to you,” he said in reference to Croatia’s Dominik Livakovic.

“I understand that I am the most responsible, but we are all responsible for the loss. It’s not about being a hero or a villain. There is no such thing in sports. Sometimes we have a great performance, we shoot at goal, and the ball deviates. That’s normal. But I can respect the result,” he added.

“The fifth penalty is the decisive one. There is more pressure and players who are mentally prepared are best to take it. Time will answer that,” he replied when asked how his tenure should be judged.

The Crotia coach Zlatko Dalic paid tribute to his country’s one of the greates victories after a miraculous comeback to reach their second straight World Cup semi-final. “We are a small country,” he said. “Our players are great fighters. Our honesty, hard work and professionalism reflects on us. People are surprised by our ability to do such a phenomenal thing. But we expected it.”
