    Nope.

    Corluka doesnt play right back for croatia.
    He plays central back or left back.

    Srna captain of croatia is playing at right back.

    The report from the game.

    Corluka was very good at central half first half.
    Corluka played left back second half and did a very good job and raped the right back of france with some trick.

    Modric started with some bad passes in first half but improved the more the game went.
    He played too high up the pitch tho. He is not very good behind the striker.

    Pletikosa came in second half and did a very good job when tested.

    Kranjcar was very bad today. Lost the ball a lot of times and didnt do much forward.

    He he played good. He had the best chance for croatia when he totally destroyed mexes.

    He took the ball of mexes and ran to score the 1-0 but then lloris did a great save.

    If perisic passed it would have been a goal tho.

    He's playing really good lately in Bruge, he has a great chance of becoming the top goalscoarer in the league. Belgian press have linked him with us a few times, and there would have been a bid of 7 mil euro's.

    dont see where he would play in our team.

    A step to tottenham would be way way too huge for him.

    I see him more in a team like dortmund.

    ---------------runje-----------------
    ---corluka--lovren--simunic--pranjic--
    -------vukojevic---modric---------
    --srna-----perisic------kranjcar
    -------------jelavic------------------

    This is the lineup that stared game.

    Charli was in 1H on RB and in 2H on LB and was solid. Noting special, did his job ok in deffence without any mistake. Since France had most of possession he didn't try to attack too much. Funny thing is that he looked more dangerous on LB then on RB.

    Modric looked very tired, especial in 2H. Few tackles on him ware very non-friendly and at the moment i thought that he got injured but played 90 min. This wasn't his evening or, and this is just my opinion, he is more comfortable playing Spurs style of football than NT style. By that i mean: he and Kranjcar can't play together. Especially when Modric is on his preferred position, DLM. Kranjcar and his defender are crowding the middle on the left and Modric always has 2 or 3 players that covers him.

    Kranjcar. Coach should really try to play him as AM in 451, what we played today. Midfield is to crowded when we play like this. We just stand too narrow and since he is't the fastest player defender is almost always on his back and when he get the ball there just is't enough time to create anything or to have enough space to use his shot. Defensibly he did ok. Their RB was never left alone.

    Pletikosa played in 2H and had few nice saves. Looked very confident even under pressure when defenders returned ball in not so ideal situations. Overall, very good half by him.

    I can assure you 100% we started like this:

    -------------------------------runje----------------------------------
    -------srna-------------corluka----------lovren---------pranjic---
    -------perisic------------vukojevic-----simunic---------kranjcar-
    ---------------------------------modric------------------------------
    -------------------------------jelavic---------------------------------

    and then it was

    -------------------------------runje----------------------------------
    -------srna-------------simunic----------lovren---------corluka---
    -------Rakitic------------vukojevic-----modric---------kranjcar--
    ---------------------------------Petric-------------------------------
    -------------------------------kalinic---------------------------------

    I have to correct you on this one :)

    Corluka started as RB and swiched to LB second half. When in your life have you seen Simunic play Midfield :D :D :D

    It was wrong in the tactic grafic before the match, but they lined up on the field

    corluka-lovren-simunic-pranjic
    vukojevic
    srna-modric-kranjcar-perisic
    jelavic

    Ok, I can see that you are already discussing this :)

    In no way was simunic playing mid. My tactic is the wright one :)

    No matter where Vedran played, he played. He would be key when we play against Real Madrid. Ronaldo will switch between right and left and I'd rather have Corluka in defence rather than Hutton (who was crap against Brazil last Saturday).

    Charlie is definitely a more solid choice for RB. He just makes me cringe when he makes those forward runs. 8/10 he loses the ball or passes poorly, then when he does beat his man, his crosses have been woeful.

    Maybe his lack of games has contributed to this...though he appears very composed in defence.

    I think Modders should be benched for the Wigan game. he looked out of sorts in the international games. maybe bring him on in the second half if things aren't going our way...best keep him fresh for real madrid.

    kranjcar....classy player, But he won't start. end of story.

    Stipe... Being our third choice keeper, I can't see anything he does on the international stage changing anything for spurs.

    This is true, everyone who saw game can confirm this line up.

    All 4 Tottenham players were very good, Pletikosa was our best player 2nd half.

    u are wrong again.

    Simunic played a lot of times in midfield for hertha bsc and did a very good job.

    that was our starting lineup on paper but perisic was on the wing and modric played behind the striker in the game.

    if you dont believe me watch the recorded game again where they show the lineups of both teams.
