Tin Lučin was Croatia’s top scorer with 6 goals. Coach Hrvoje Horvat was happy after the match.

“We can be happy, we won a difficult game, it was not nice to the eye, we tried everything, improvised, managed to keep ourselves in it in the first half. We managed to turn around the game and finally celebrate at the end. The guys deserved this,” Horvat said.
