Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic looks to be picking just the right time to find his best form for his country at the World Cup.
This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who note that the 30-year-old will be hoping to be decisive for Croatia in their key final group stage match against his Nerazzurri teammate Romelu Lukaku’s Belgium.
Brozovic looked a bit off the pace in Croatia’s opening group stage draw with Morocco, which was his first start for club or country since coming back from a thigh strain that had caused him to miss more than a month of action.
Against Canada over the weekend, however, the Croat started to really show why he is a key player for both his club and country.
Croatia cruised to a 4-1 win over the Canadians, which along with their draw with Morocco means that they are well-placed to qualify for the round of sixteen with a result against Belgium.
Meanwhile, Lukaku’s Red Devils suffered a damaging loss to Morocco on Sunday, and they absolutely need a result against Croatia if they are to have hope of reaching the knockout rounds.
Lukaku has barely featured for his national side at the tournament, with just a disappointing cameo in the loss to Morocco, whereas his Inter teammate Brozovic is already starting to look his best ahead of the massive head-to-head match.
