nail biter versus Georgia for Croatia. Georgia literally scored on their only chance, and it was from a cross where a guy sandwiched between Corluka and Srna somehow won a header into the net. Croatia dominated the rest of the match, hitting the post three times before scoring twice in a span of two minutes. It still wasn't a good performance, but its hard to play against an opponent defending with 10 men in their own 16 yard area
Greece will win tomorrow, but I'm still hoping they slip up against Israel or Georgia away, but judging by the way Croatia played today and really since Euro 2008, its far from a guarantee we will beat Israel at home or get a good result in Athens. The problem in this group is so far every team has bunkered against Croatia and we don't have quality wingers or the speed to effectively break these teams down.
The black one was nice. Green has been worn a lot in previous eras by German teams as an away shirt, it's paying tribute to the 1972 Euro winning team IIRC which I suppose is appropriate if they do indeed wear it for the first time in the Euro's next year
Parker has not been good enough for this level, unconcentrated passing, not enough strength, tackling or running, not covering opponents well enough and generally poor off the ball movement. Whatever his role is supposed to be, it's not much of a benefit for the team.
Ziegler just signed a contract with Juventus, Inler and Lichtsteiner are also on the list of Juventus Benaglio apparently is close to Arsenal, and you still have very talented players like Shaqiri or Xhaka playing in the Swiss league. It will be interesting to watch, how they will develop in the future.
