Rovinj (DPA) – After a disappointing run so far in the European Championship group stage, vice world champion Croatia hopes an all-or-nothing game against Scotland will send a signal.

“What is lacking is the result which gives us a boost in confidence,” said striker Bruno Petkovic. Asked whether the spirited and strong Scottish selection was to be adequately countered in these qualities as well, he said: “The sport will best answer every question.”

Victory needed against Scotland

The Croatians were drawn 1–1 from the Czech Republic after a 1–0 win against England. In Glasgow on Tuesday (9 pm), the team will play for a win against Scotland. The 26-year-old Dinamo Zagreb attacker said Scotland have a very solid and homogeneous team. “That he drew against England says a lot about him.”

Overall, Croatia played below expectations in the European Championship, Petkovic admitted. The pressure for selection around captain Luka Modric is also great. “We have to give 100 percent in the last game and get three points,” said future Leipzig defender Josco Guardiol.
