Slovakia national team uniform
The Slovak national team is a team that has not played at the world championships for a long time, but began to attend continental championships regularly, albeit unsuccessfully. At Euro 2016, they were eliminated in the 1/8 finals, and at Euro 2020 they were not able to leave the group at all, although they beat Poland in the first game – 2: 1, but then lost to Sweden and Spain – 0: 1 and 0 : 5, respectively. Now Stefan Tarkovich’s wards will try to qualify for the 2022 World Cup, where everything is going on with varying success: they played in a draw with Cyprus, Malta and Slovenia, but they managed to win against Russia – 2: 1. So it turns out that in the standings of group H the Slovak national team is in third place, lagging behind the leaders by only one point.
Croatia national team uniform
The Croatian national team has not experienced any problems for a long time in order to enter major international tournaments. The last time they did not play at the 2010 World Cup, after which they constantly play at the continental and world championships, and at the 2018 World Cup they even became finalists. At Euro 2020, the “checkers” performed not in the best way: in the first round they lost to England – 0: 1, then shared the points with the Czech Republic – 1: 1, and in the decisive game they beat Scotland – 3: 1, which allowed them to reach 1 / 8 final, which was followed by a defeat from Spain – 3: 5. Now Zlatko Dalic’s wards will try to qualify for the 2022 World Cup, where they managed to lose to Slovenia – 0: 1, beat Cyprus and Malta – 1: 0 and 3: 0, respectively, and shared points with Russia – 0: 0, remaining in first place in group H.
