The expectation will be great when Poland faces Croatia for the first time in an international
competition in the last match of Group B in Klagenfurt.

After tow wins against Austria 0-1 and Germany 1-2, the Croatian team have already wrapped
up top in Group B, I think that Croatia has made a big surprise in this EURO 2008, we all expected that Germany will win
this group as one of EURO 2008 favorites and Croatia will compete against Poland for the second place in group B.

They will be relaxed in their last match against Poland as they look forward to a quarter finals against Turkey my other surprising team.

Croatia coach: “We can’t wait for the match to start. Our opponents are a great side but we
have a strong desire to continue playing well and achieving good results,” said the 39-year-old.
“This will not be a reserve side,” he commented. “We have 23 players in all and there is no
first team, second team or reserve team. I have no doubt whatsoever that my team can beat
Poland, whatever team I put out. I have total respect for Poland but I also have confidence
in my players.”

Poland destiny is out of their own hands, They must defeat Croatia on Monday in Klagenfurt
for more than two goals and hope that Austria beat Germany witch is not expected.

Poland coach: “We have to put our effort into what we have in our hands,” said the Dutchman.
“We can’t control events in Vienna. All I can do is plan with my players to try and get the
win over Croatia. We are focusing on our task and then we have to hope things elsewhere go
our way to qualify through the back door.”

commenting on Croatia: “Croatia have a certain philosophy of playing and that will not change
very much, no matter who is playing,” he said. “Positions and styles are more or less fixed,
so it’s just a case of different players doing the jobs. I’m confident we have done our
homework on every player in the squad of 23.”
