The Croatian women’s national team beat Romania 1:0. It was the last match of Croatia’s premier edition of the League of Nations B. Croatia won the second place in Group 2, thus qualifying for the playoffs for the A League.

This is a phenomenal success for Croatia, and the players found a way to win towards the end of the game. The scorer was Ivana Rudelić in the 81st minute, and she scored the goal after a double pass with Petra Pezelj and after she went around the home goalkeeper.

Nenad Gračan is the coach of the Croatian women’s national team. He was very pleased, but also happy because of the success he had achieved. It is obvious that Gračan is doing a very good and fair job with the women’s team.

I congratulate all the players who were a part of this really great result, which we can be proud of. Of course, thanks also to my staff who did a great job in this competitive cycle. This is the best indicator of our progress, this result is proof that we can, I believe that the confidence of the girls will increase further ahead of the new challenges that await us.

Nenad Gračan, Croatian Women’s National Team Coach

Croatia will find out its opponent in the playoffs on Monday, December 11, and the possible opponents are Belgium, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The matches will be played on 21 February and 28 February.

Thus, the Croatian women’s national team will play in the playoffs in Ferbuary, and let’s hope that they will be focused and that injuries will bypass them. If they are placed in a higher tier of the Nations League, then it is an even greater shame that we do not have a football infrastructure. Good luck to the girls in the further competition.

GROUP A:
Finland 6 5 1 0 18:2 16
Croatia 6 3 0 3 5:10 9
Slovakia 6 2 2 2 7:8 8
