Europe (uefa) - Qualification Round 2023/2024
In Group D here Croatia are the top favorites, but Wales and Turkey will want to make their life difficult as possible. The outsiders are Latvia and Armenia. So the Croatians start their European Championship qualification adventure on Saturday and will want to record their first success at home. Currently number seven in the world they manage to establish more in the elite, of course also thanks to the successful World Cup. But this success is no longer of any use, the upcoming European Championship is a completely new tournament. On the side of the Welsh, on the other hand, there is not exactly pure optimism since the Dragons have really never won against Croatia. There is no question, the Croatians are among the best teams in the world. They may not play exhilarating attacking football, but their defensive strength and ability to never give up is incredible. The strong World Cup was by no means a product of chance, because before that almost everything went according to plan in the strongest division of the Nations League. Wales are by no means a feared opponent but they have never conceded more than two goals against Croatia. While Croatia played a great World Cup after 1-1 against the USA, 0-2 against Iran and 0-3 against England, the Dragons went back home.
