Eduardo’s assist hands Croatia the winner

By 1970’s Gooner

There was a last minute change of plans by Bilic when Petric, who was expected to sit out this game due to an ankle injury, declared himself free of pain and therefore Eduardo had to wait for his chance on the bench.

The Romanians started the game better with their crisp and incisive passing. It was not a surprise that they went ahead on 22 with a well taken goal by Marica.

Croatia equalised with Rakitić’s 35 meter free kick on 28 minutes.

Eduardo came on the 61st minute for Olic and was quick to make an impact. He chased everything, showed a lot of determination but above all played without fear.

His insistence brought Croatia’s winning goal when surrounded by a host of Romania’s defenders he fought for the ball managing to pass it to the unmarked Nico Kranjkar who steered it home from a couple of yards.

Although he played for only 34 minutes Eduardo must be feeling a lot better now having appeared in a competitive game, making a decisive impact and above all coming through unscathed both physically and mentally.

Next game Cardiff?

Bear in mind this is a friendly and nothing at stake.I will pass judgement after a series of matches when points are at stake and the tackles fly in.

brilliant little pass by dudu. it's his presence on the pitch that makes him so good.

Yes we may have players coming back,i.e Eduardo etc but unless our midfield can pick a forward pass we have only scraps to pick off. Only one goal in four games is awfull! Denilson can only pass sideways! Song is a poor excuse for Flamini. I can't wait until Fabregas, Wallcot and Rosicky(hopefully) are back boosting our attacking lines, then maybe we will see football worthy of the price we pay tickets for!
