In an attempted move to tuck England`s Michael Owen, Croatia coach Slaven Bilic has hammed our number 10 for insinuating the team that beat England home and away doesn`t have a player who would get in the England First XI. After watching the 3 Lions I`m fully in agreement with the mad eyed former Hammer. Bilic mused:

“There’s a bit of arrogance when we see words like ‘No player from the Croatia team would play for England’ – that is simply not true.You have to realise football is played in the rest of Europe on a high level. But I respect the English a lot. When everyone is fit they have a chance to win in Europe, maybe even the World Cup.’
