If Vrsaljko does not make it, one option for Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic will be to bring Vedran Corluka into central defence and push Domagoj Vida out to right-back.

"I think they (England) have been fantastic, a breath of fresh air". After he retired, he turned to coaching and, ultimately, became interim manager in 2016 when England's former team manager Sam Allardyce lost his job amidst allegations of improper conduct.
