Croatia U-17 Beat France To Qualify For Euros

The Croatian U-17 football side has qualified for the European Championship with a 1:0 win over France in Croatia on Saturday.

The Ivan Gudelj coached side will now head to Slovakia in May for the European Championship after Lulic scored the decisive goal in the 7th minute of the match . If Croatia finish in the top 6 at the Slovakian tournament then they will book themselves a place at the U-17 World Cup in the UAE in October and November.

“I am proud of the guys, they played brilliantly. I can not single anyone out, well done guys. Let them enjoy this victory,” said Gudelj.
