Croatia’s manager Ante Čačić has cut his original 27-man squad he named for UEFA Euro 2016 in France down to the final 23 on Tuesday evening from the squad’s base in Rovinj…

Čačić has had his squad together for over a week and had a good chance to look at players vying for the final few spots during camps in Koprivnica and Rovinj, and the warm-up match against Moldova last Friday. The four players who failed to book seats on the plane for France and have been released from the squad are keeper Dominik Livaković, Domagoj Antolić, Duje Ćaleta-Car and Alen Halilović.

Croatia’s final UEFA Euro 2016 Squad:

Goalkeepers: Danijel Subašić, Lovre Kalinić, Ivan Vargić

Defenders: Darijo Srna, Domagoj Vida, Gordon Schildenfeld, Tin Jedvaj, Vedran Ćorluka, Ivan Strinić, Šime Vrsaljko,

Midfielders: Luka Modrić, Ivan Rakitić, Mateo Kovačić, Milan Badelj, Marcelo Brozović, Ante Ćorić, Marko Rog,

Strikers: Marko Pjaca, Ivan Perišić, Mario Mandžukić, Andrej Kramarić, Nikola Kalinić, Duje Čop
