The trainer wanted the lineup Wednesday not to concede, but from his words during the press conference, it fell on that the addition to the reserves carried on. “Lozano is connected. He is fit, but still has some structure and adjustment is needed. We may of him still not expect miracles,” said the trainer.

The 21-year-old vleugelaanvaller played this summer with his country at the Confederations Cup in Russia. At the beginning of this month lost to Mexico in the match for third place Portugal.

Cocu is on guard for the Croats. “Osijek has technically skilled players. The team has good attackers with scoring ability. It will be no easy race.”

The duel in Eindhoven starts on Thursday at 19: 00. A week later, the return in Croatia. The winner of the diptych of the place for the play-offs for a place in the group stage of the Europa League.
