I don't think Croats consider Serbians their cousins.

Denmark are not crap.....................How can you call a team with Delaney, Eriksen, Poulsen, Vestergaard, Christensen and Schmeichel crap?

I don't see how Serbia is more balanced than Croatia. We have pretty much a complete team. The quality up front is questionable, but Mandzukic, Kramaric, and Rebic might develop and peak in time.

Also, from watching both teams, I believe we move the ball much better, especially offensively, than Serbia. Both teams are gritty when need be. But I thing we have 1 more level of class.

Of course, I'm Croatian and have a bias. But I like to think I keep it as objective as possible.

More important Serbia have all four backilne players who are good in the air which is where Costa Rica is counting on.

And SE have both RB and LB that cannot contribute in this area. Yet Eze was not considered in the SE squad.

Take Savic and Matic out of the middle and Serbia are toothless, where as Brozovic and Kovacic can easily replace Ivan and Luka for Croatia....................So Croatia is better for me.

It's close. But I like their balance of role players Matic and Luka Milivojević compared to flair players Tadic and Savic. I also like the fact that their two full backs Ivanovic and Kolarov are experienced but still young enough to contribute. Overall Croatia has the higher profile players though.

Good Victory for Serbia.....................Good to see AARP members RB Ivanovic and LB Kolarov bombing up front to support the attack.

Bad concept.
Costa Rica playing to the strength of Serbia; high balls into the Serbia backline.

Or at least low probability of being a successful strategy.

Maybe. I just think that with Croatia there is a case of too many chiefs not enough Indians, whereas the Serbians have players content with totally doing the donkey work.
