Disappointing Evening For Our Lone International In Action



It was a very disappointing evening for Martin Dubravka and Slovakia in Croatia for their 2020 Euro Qualifier. After taking a surprise 0-1 lead into the half on a 32nd-minute goal by Robert Bozenik, it was all Croatia in the second half to seal Group E with a 3-1 win.

A 56th-minute goal by former Newcastle target Nikola Vlasic started the comeback, though it was coming for some time. Martin Dubravka just couldn’t get his hand on the ball and was beaten on the long-range effort.

The second goal for Croatia came soon after on a 60th-minute corner. There was nothing Martin could do on the header by Bruno Petkovic, who had it far too comfortable in front of the net.

Then to make matters even worse for Slovakia, left-winger Robert Mak was sent off after receiving a second yellow in the 66th minute. Ivan Perisic added a third goal for Croatia in the 74th minute as Slovakia’s collapse was complete.

This was a match Slovakia truly needed something from. They now fall to 4th place in Group E on 10 points and will need to defeat Azerbaijan in Slovakia on Tuesday night. Not only must they win, but they have to hope that Wales and Hungary draw when they face each other in Wales on Tuesday.

    Not sure how a half empty stadium would hinder a sale, motivate a seller more like.

    Amazingly you’re not the only Spanish speaker who has an internet related job but we don’t all feel obligated to comment non stop 24/7.

    It seems my phone was so keen to post about your work being
    internet related and how you’ve time to kill, it jumped the gun!

    On the point of your work being web-dependent, I seem to remember a certain Tony Balloony claiming much the same – he too seemed to spend his life on here, being a narcisstic, controversial poster ever looking for arguments.

    What’s the saying about idle hands….?

    Speaking of Andrew’s TV interview last night, anyone seen the reviews of Woking Pizza Express on TripAdvisor? There’s some comedians out there. https://tinyurl.com/snqfbgv

    Can we all agree that Shola is probably not as intelligent as Jib?
