Croatia U21 to end campaign with pride

Croatia U21 and Romania U21 are only aiming to finish their campaign in the Euro U21 with a win, as both are already eliminated here. Croatia and Romania both aim to finish their campaign in the Euro U21 strong. These two teams faced early elimination, after they are both without a single point in their matches. Croatia is at the third of their group standings without a point, while Romania is with the same point, sitting at the fourth. Moreover, this is only the second time that these two teams meet each other. They had their first meeting in 2019, where Romania claimed a 4-1 win. This record made Croatia to be more eager to win this match. This meeting will be on June 28, 2023, at 2:45 AM (GMT+8).

Croatia is coming into this game from a 1-0 loss against Spain on their last meeting, which secured their elimination on the contest. This is actually the fastest conceded goal ever scored in the history of Euro U21. They allowed their opponents to score a goal as early as 20 seconds from the start of the game. It is just unfortunate that Croatia failed to win any of their games, especially their last one. A win in their previous match could have gave them the opportunity for the next round. Croatia is hoping that they could avoid losing without a single goal for the third time through this game. It is just unfortunate that Croatia have yet to get a single win here, despite having a good form. Additionally, what motivates Croatia to win here is because they want to avoid the same fate as they had in 2019.

Considering that their squad is a little impressive on their last match, no changes are expected to happen for this match. As they aim for a strong finish, they would still rely with Roko Simic, who have the most experience in their squad.

Romania on the other hand sits at the bottom of their group standing, as they also failed to score a single point in the contest. They are coming from a 1-0 loss against Ukraine on their last match, ending their hopes for the next round. Victor Dican’s goal in the 87th-minute for Ukraine gave Romania their elimination. This is not surprising though, as they are currently winless in their last nine matches across all contests. Considering that they are already eliminated in the contest, just like their opponent, they have nothing but pride here. It is just unfortunate that Romania failed to make use of their home advantage, being the hosts of the contest. With that, they are hoping to somehow give their fans something ro celebrate as they exit the contest.

Jovan Markovic is one of the players who were able to produce two strikes for Romania in their matches. Due to this, he is one of the players Romania is leaning on to at least give them a win here.
