Croatia imposed themselves away against Slovakia and showed why they are favorites to lead the Group E. The Croatians went to the city of Trnava and put four past the hosts this Friday. Nikola Vlasic, Ivan Perisic, Bruno Petkovic and Dejan Lovren scored the four goals for Croatia.

Croatia played a great first half against Slovakia in Trnava. The crossbar saved the hosts on two occasions, and it seemed like it would end up in a goalless draw until Nikola Vlasic showed up.

Vlasic brought Croatia to the lead with great solo action. He received the ball, created some space, and managed to beat Martin Dubravka in a great precise effort. 0-1 Croatia.

It was Vlasic’s first goal for the A team, and it could hardly have come at a better time. The goal literally fell in the last second of the half; as soon as the Slovaks took the ball out of the center, the referee blew for the last time.

In the second half, Croatia extended their lead. The goal was a little bit unusual, but all that matters is that the ball went in. It came in through Perisic, as he shot and the ball deflected off, and tricked Dubravka, falling into the goal. 0-2 Croatia.

The Slovaks were in a knockdown after the second goal, and the third was just a matter of time. It finally arrived in the 72nd minute. And what a goal from Petkovic. The Croatian player received the ball, rounded two Slovaks, including the most expensive player in the field according to Transfermarkt, Skriniar, and fired home. Dubravka even touched the ball, but couldn’t save it. 0-3 Croatia.

The 4-goal thriller was completed by Dejan Lovren in the 89th minute. The Liverpool defender scored a header past Dubravka, who could have done better. 0-4 Croatia.
