Tihana Hoping Croatian Men Can Do What The Women Could Not Do On Friday

Former Croatian women’s international and the first ever female coach of a men’s football club in Croatia Tihana Nemcic, knows what it is like to play for Croatia against Serbia, but she is hoping that Friday night’s World Cup qualifier in Zagreb produces a different result than it did in 2010.

“I actually played against the Serbian women’s national team. It was in 2010 in Vrbovec, Croatia and unfortunately the Croatian women’s national team lost that day 2-1,” Tihana told Croatia Week.

Tihana, who made world headlines earlier this year when she was appointed boss of Croatian football side NK Viktorija Vojakovac, making her the first ever female coach of a men’s football club in Croatia, says Friday’s match-up promises to provide plenty of entertainment, fun, tears and surprises.

“I believe in the quality of the Croatian team and have no doubt they will play to their potential and collect 3 points…But, I don’t like to give predictions because we all know the ball is round. The unpredictability of football is one of the reasons why we love this game so much!” said Tihana, adding that she will be watching and analysing the match from the comfort of home after tickets sold out within hours for the match at Zagreb’s Maksimir stadium.
