Ivan Strinic

Injuries have been something of a concern for Strinic this season and there have been times during the course of the campaign when his fitness for Euro 2012 has been a concern, but he has made it in time and should fill the left-back role he made his own during the qualifying competition.

Starting in eight of his nation’s 12 qualifiers for Euro 2012, this former Hadjuk Split star looked the part as he began to grow into the demands of international football and he will have a big role to play in what will likely be a little changed Croatia defence this summer, following the injury to Dejan Lovren.

He impressed on his way through the junior ranks of the national team and is now heading into his first major tournament as a senior player. Croatia’s defence is viewed as their weak spot this summer, so Strinic has a big role to play in keeping them tight at the back.
