The Croatian U21 national team opened a new qualification cycle with the victory. As expected, she took all three points from the Faroe Islands. Coach Dragan Skočić can be satisfied because this is his first victory since leading this national team. He also led it at the European Championship, but he did not become famous. He won one point but did not score a goal.

The first match in the qualifiers was a one-way match. Croatia is of better quality than the Faroe Islands. You could see that right from the first minute. As it is a youth national team, we can always expect some kind of circus. At halftime, Croatia led 2:0 with goals from Šimić and Hodža, and in the 76th minute, Beljo increased the lead.

Of course, the circus was activated and the Faroe Islands scored two goals, both times the scorer was Olsen. In order to avoid any surprises, Ljubičić scored in the second minute of stoppage time for the final score of 4:2. The player of the match was Veldin Hodža.

This national team has great potential. A great future awaits these players, both in the national team and at the club level.
