Kranjcar Rakitic (SMF)

Vukojevic (DMF)

Strinic Srna (SB)

Simunic Corluka (CB)

Runje (GK)

I'll post soon new roster.

I believe the formation there was 4-2-3-1, just like today against Israel. Against Greece it was 4-4-2.

Current squad:

Goalkeepers:
1. Pletikosa
12. Runje
23. Subasic

Defenders:
2. Strinic
3. Simunic
5. Corluka
13. Schildenfeld :lol: :lol:
20. Lovren
11. Srna
??. J. Buljat :lol:

Midfielders:
6. Pranjic
7. Rakitic
8. Vukojevic
10. Modric
16. Dujmovic
19. Kranjcar
??. Pokrivac
14. Gabric

Strikers:
9. Eduardo
17. Mandzukic
18. Olic
21. Bilic
??. Petric

Recent Callups:

Goalkeepers:
Delac
Blazevic

Defenders:
Mladen Bartulovic :shock:
Knezevic
Cale
Vida
Luka Vucko :shock:
Pamic

Midfielders:
Badelj
Ilicevic :|
Sharbini

Strikers:
Jelavic (injured for 4 months)
Klasnic
Kalinic

Slaven Bilic gave a chance to some, in my opinion, players that doesn't deserve to play for national team. Players that are bad overall (Schildenfeld, J. Buljat) and players that I haven't heard ever before (if they were any good, I would atleast know where they play, Mladen Bartulovic and Luka Vucko).

The current formation is 4-4-2, altought they play sometimes with a 4-3-3 system (Mandzukic/Petric over Rakitic)

Olic (CF)

Eduardo (SS)

Kranjcar Rakitic (SMF)

Modric Vukojevic (CMF DMF)

Strinic Srna (SB)

Simunic Lovren (CB)

Runje (GK)

No they never played 4-3-3, thats 4-2-3-1, In Isreal it was like this:

Eduardo (CF)

Kranjčar(LMF) Modrić(AMF) Olić(RMF)

Pranjić(CMF) Rakitić(CMF)

Strinić(SB) Šimunić(CB) Schildenfeld(CB) Ćorluka(SB)

Runje(GK)

In Latvia it was the same but Ćorluka played CB and Srna on the right, Vukojević was on Pranjić place, Petrić was RMF, Eduardo AMF and Olić CF. Rakitić is now a CMF.

And Schildenfeld is really awful, I think Lovren should be the third choice CB.
