Morocco vs Croatia squad for World Cup start 11 for Group F match in Qatar 2022 | Update News

Croatia kicks off its bid to be one better than the previous World Cup when it hosts Morocco on Wednesday.

The wards of Zlatko Dalic were unexpected participants in the final of this tournament in 2018, where they ultimately lost to France.

Croatia is also not destined for glory in Qatar, although a good start against Morocco will no doubt suggest that they may be dark horses.

Lineups Morocco vs Croatia

Croatia boss Dalic is convinced his team is fully prepared for another big World Cup run despite limited preparation time.

Since the tournament is taking place at the height of the European season, we did not have the opportunity to play friendly matches or practice a lot before the start.

But the Croatian manager made an optimistic tone in his press conference before the first match, saying: “We used this time to get used to the conditions that awaited us. I am very glad. We are ready”.

“We chose the highest quality in terms of energy and experience. There is no more doubt, the guys know the composition.

“We have the experience and the energy and we have a good squad. We are in for a tough match. I think we made the right choice.”
