There are only 2 Medveščak players that have gained eligibility, the new players are not eligible to play for Croatia and will not be until they have played two full seasons in the country.

The better Croatia will become, the less they will need to rely on foreigners. That's typically something that smaller teams do, and if anything it hinders their progression.
