Just as many fans that turned up to watch Dinamo Zagreb play Paris St. Germain in the UEFA Champions League in Zagreb turned up on Friday to watch the Croatian national team train.
6,000 fans turned up in Mostar at Igor Stimac’s side’s open training run as they prepare to face Scotland in a World Cup qualifier in Zagreb this Friday night. The team have been a hit in Medjugorje where they have been based ahead of the 7 June clash with fans coming out in droves every time the team appears.
After UEFA stopped a friendly match with a local Mostar team from going ahead on Friday, Stimac split his squad into two and put on a training match for the thousands of fans who showed up. “Preparations have been brilliant. Medjugorje is an oasis of peace, and Mostar is fantastic also,” said Stimac, adding that he would not be under estimating Scotland on Friday.
