Occupation of the Island

According to what’s written in British press, Eduardo, Modrić, Ćorluka and Kranjčar could easily greet more of their teammates from the national team at the Island. Mentioned are Olić, Å imunić, Kovač, Rakitić…


Stipe Pletikosa, Josip Šimunić, Robert Kovač, Vedran Ćorluka, Danijel Pranjić, Niko Kovač, Ivan Rakitić, Luka Modrić, Darijo Srna, Niko Kranjčar, Ivica Olić.

These are eleven players who started the match against Germany on 12th June in Klagenfurt. Three of them are already members of the clubs form Premiership, but what makes this story interesting is the fact that by the end of the summer at least six teammates form the national team could join them.

In explanation, if you are tracing all the gossips which comes mainly from the British press, lately they are writing that Liverpool wants Olić, while Fulham is interested in Josip Šimunić.

Robert Kovač has also expressed his will to play in Premiership, while exactly after the match against Germany Ivan Rakitić appeared in medias as a wish of Chelsea.

True, speculations about the move of Stipe Pletikosa to Manchester United and Danijel Pranjić to Tottenham are a bit older, but they are still interesting for the context of the story.

Moreover, in that sense it should be mentioned that Wigan was overlooking Ivan Klasnić in the last couple of days (but has also allegedly receded), and one time Everton wanted Dario Šimić.

Not to forget that our coach was a wish of Manchester City and West Ham for a long time, the same as that soon recovered Eduardo da Silva will continue defending the colors of Arsenal.

Therefore, there is a possibility that the next gathering of Vatreni will start at the London aerodrome Heathrow, what is in the first row, another great compliment to Croatian players.
