Mario Mandzukic

After securing a host of trophies with Dinamo Zagreb, Mandzukic earned a move to the German Bundesliga in 2010 and he has put together a decent season with Wolfsburg in this build up to this international football festival in Poland and Ukraine.

Croatia coach Slaven Bilic has plenty of options in the striking department as the likes of Ivica Olic, Eduardo and the in-form Nikica Jelavic push for starting places at Euro 2012, but he will have to find a way of getting this talented performer into his team after his impressive contribution to the qualifying push, which included three goals from 10 appearances.

At home on the wing or as a lead striker, he may be asked to play a more reserved role if coach Bilic opts for a more conservative formation in this summer’s tournament, but he has been experimenting with a 4-3-3 line-up that would allow Mandzukic to go hunting for goals this summer.
