New Croatia U18 football boss Zoran Vulić has started his reign in charge with a victory over England at St. George’s Park on Monday…
Croatia went into the break 1-0 down after England’s Chelsea striker Alex Kiwomya had given them the lead. Whatever Vulić said at half-time seemed to work as Croatia scored two unanswered goals through Marko Stolnik and Hajduk Split’s Nikola Vlašić. Vlašić is the 16-year-old brother of famous Croatian high jumper Blanka Vlašić.
