Croatia unsure of World Cup starting XIKovac captained Croatia in his playing days
National coach Niko Kovac has admitted that he has not decided on his team for the opening match of the tournament against Brazil.
Speaking to the media before the squad flew to South America, he also said that he will be watching the host nation’s friendlies against Panama and Serbia but did not expect any surprises from Brazil.
"I still don't have the lineup for the match against Brazil. We will give a chance to the majority of our players against Australia and will decide about the lineup for Brazil.
"We know everything about the Brazilian team. They will play two more friendly matches that we will analyse them and see if they make some changes. Personally, I don't expect to see anything new," said Kovac.
