The Croatian football team has trained for the first time at Liverpool’s Anfield stadium on Saturday afternoon ahead of their World Cup warm-up against Brazil on Sunday.
The Croatian squad flew into Liverpool on Saturday before making their way to the home of Liverpool FC. Zlatko Dalic’s 24-man team was greeted by a handful of fans as they got off the bus at Anfield.
Dalic then put the squad through their paces as they prepare for a clash against Brazil on Sunday. The Croatia manager has no injury worries after a week-long camp in Rovinj last week with all players fit.

Dalic is expected to start tomorrow’s match with his preferred eleven but he has already said that most of the squad will get some game time. Dalic has some healthy headaches, namely at centre back and on the wings.
Dejan Lovren, who returns back to his home club, is pushing Vedran Corluka for a starting spot with the Spartak Moscow defender returning from injury.
Another player who looks like he has played his way into the starting line-up is Eintracht Frankfurt’s Ante Rebic. Reports suggest that left-winger Ivan Perisic may switch to the right-wing to make way for Rebic.
Tomorrow’s match kicks off at 3 pm. Croatia will then head to Slavonia to prepare for their final warm-up against Senegal in Osijek on 8 June.
