Croatia-Northern Macedonia 3-0

Croatia overwhelms North Macedonia in Rijeka. It started with Kovacic rewarded for his presence number 100 in the red and white national team and a North Macedonia that is not willing to be the sacrificial victim, even if è followed in Rijeka only by a handful of fans. And so è the Giallorossi try to trouble the home rearguard. Croatia, però, slyly finds the goal at the first attempt. Majer’s free kick, Dimitrievski doesn’t even move and è 1-0.

Pleasant match, played at a good pace and which in the end of the first half saw the doubling of Majer, who took full advantage of a Petkovic bank and, alone in front of the Macedonian extreme defender, gave him no chance again.

After halftime Trajkovski immediately tries but the former Palermo man&#39s conclusion does not trouble Livakovic. When Croatia restarts on the counterattack è always dangerous: Baturina shoots high wasting the 3-0 ball.

The pinwheel of changes on both sides upsets the teams on the field and the pace drops significantly. The third Croatian goal is signed by Marco Pasalic, who solves a scrum in the area with a cannonball that ends up under the crossbar: the result does not change anymore.
