This Croatian U20 team is not as strong as in previous D1 campaigns, but could be very dangeours if someone underestimate them. Biggest weakness is lack of depth on D, and stronger side of team is, or should be, chemistry, as almost every player plays in same team.

Yes, Tomljenovic is starting goalie, he won't be only if he loses both of his legs . He is little bit shaky so far in the season, but most of the times he gives his best in NT uniform.
Yeah, another Croatian poster told me in another section of the forum that Croatia had a good couple of years of junior guys who played in better leagues abroad like Finland who are now too old.
