Croatia head coach Zlatko Dalić presented his squad for the upcoming Nations League Finals, to be held from 14 to 18 June in the Netherlands.

Croatia national football team reached its first Nations League Finals by winning the group with France, Denmark, and Austria, thus joining European powerhouses Netherlands, Italy, and Spain. In the first semifinals, Croatia takes on Netherlands on 14 June in Rotterdam.

Head coach Dalić called up 24 players, with seven stand-by call-ups, and by 5 June at 23:59 CET the final squad with 23 names will be sent to UEFA. Marcelo Brozović is scheduled to play the Champions League final with Inter on 10 June, and he will join the national team following this match. 

Croatia meets on 5 June and will hold practice sessions in Rijeka, while the flight to Rotterdam is scheduled for 12 June.

"This list confirms that we believe in the current squad - with minor changes, these are the World Cup bronze-winning players and they have earned our trust. At the end of the season, there is the issue of fatigue, but we have a historic opportunity to win the first trophy, and we'll try to refresh and prepare the team to reach its maximum level. We have the utmost respect for our opponents, and firm belief in our quality and unity. As the host nation, Netherlands will be very motivated, but we'll also have support for extra strength. It's a tough job, but we want to make these two final steps", Dalić said.
