Gordon Schildenfeld

There have not been too many Croatian internationals named Gordon down the years, but this centre-back has warmed to his task with Slaven Bilic’s team after making his senior debut against Liechtenstein in November 2009.

His first competitive start came against Israel during the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign and while he may not be a first choice starter for Croatia this summer, coach Bilic is a big admirer of a centre-back who hails from a mixture of Slovenian and Austrian stock.

“A successful squad relies on those waiting for their chance taking it at the important moments and a guy like Schildenfeld gives us some security in the defensive positions,” says Bilic. “We have looked to give everyone respectable time on the pitch ahead of Euro 2012 and I have great confidence in Gordon’s abilities to perform at a high level if I need him.”
