In 10mins time Ivano Balić (the greatest of all time) and Venio Losert will most likely start their last game for Croatian national team, hopefully they'll go out as winners, because they deserve that.

Alilović can't save a beach-ball, put Losert in Goluža, you ignoramus.

19-14 for Croatia at the halftime break, it looks like playing defense is optional today.

I'd say their weakest link is left-wing, and even there they're superb.

I'd picture the 4 best all time teams like this, in order:

France 2008-2011
Sweden 1990s
Russia 1990s
Croatia 2003-2007


...

As for Croatia's left-wing, since Cavar, it's all been "decent" or "good".
Kaleb, Sprem, Nincevic, Strlek... Are all "good" players, but none of them came close to ever equaling the threat we had in Dzomba on the other wing for years.

And as for Horvat, he was "okay".
But Cupic has that special energy when he scores, gets under the opponents skin, lifts the team up... Horvat doesn't have that.

Sad to see Balic go out like this, I hope they win bronze for him.
The guy is the GOAT, after all (and I don't think I'm being subjective here, he's been voted that numerous times on different international sites and magazines).
So you're saying the Swedish 90s were not big game players?

Agreed, it looks like we're clearly the better team and both teams are just going trough the motions, there's no urgency in the game at all.

Hungary lost all confidence, this is starting to look like a slaughter.

Croatia has been the better team and clearly deserve this medal. Looks like they will win it.

Also epic acting/diving/embellishment by 9 in Croatia some time ago xD

Hungary looked depleted and Croatia was clearly the better team.

Karabatic always leads with his knee when shooting, so it's extremely hard to defend.

He also acts all inocent all the time even tough he throws a lot of forearms to the throat and he likes to dive and whine a lot.

Heja Sverige!

These Slovenian refs are slowing down the game way too much which favours the French team.

Excellent defense by both teams. Sweden are struggling with the offense.

Great defending by Sweden, they would be leading if they had better finishing from 6m, and also the 9m throws.

But good start

Not liking the start of this half.. And for gods sake, show some consistency refs. I dont mind what they are doing, just do it both ways.
