Croatia calls on loaded midfield for Euro 2016 roster

Tuesday May 31st, 2016

Croatia brings a loaded midfield to Euro 2016 to take on a tough set of group foes.

The Croatians must face Spain, Turkey and the Czech Republic, but will do so with the likes of Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic, Ivan Perisic and Mateo Kovacic in tow, along with Mario Mandzukic leading the line up top.

Liverpool's Dejan Lovren was left out of the squad, but veterans Darijo Srna and Vedran Corluka are part of the defense that will look to slow down its competition. 

Here is Croatia's roster in full:

GOALKEEPERS: Danijel Subasic (Monaco), Lovre Kalinic (Hajduk Split), Ivan Vargic (Rijeka)

DEFENDERS: Darijo Srna (Shakhtar Donetsk), Vedran Ćorluka (Lokomotiv Moskva), Domagoj Vida (Dynamo Kyiv), Ivan Strinić (Napoli), Gordon Schildenfeld (Dinamo Zagreb), Šime Vrsaljko (Sassuolo), Tin Jedvaj (Bayer Leverkusen)

MIDFIELDERS: Luka Modrić (Real Madrid), Ivan Rakitić (Barcelona), Ivan Perišić (Internazionale Milano), Mateo Kovačić (Real Madrid), Milan Badelj (Fiorentina), Marcelo Brozović (Internazionale Milano), Marko Rog (Dinamo Zagreb), Ante Ćorić (Dinamo Zagreb)

FORWARDS: Mario Mandzukic (Juventus), Nikola Kalinic (Fiorentina), Marko Pjaca (Dinamo Zagreb), Duje Cop (Dinamo Zagreb), Andrej Kramaric (Hoffenheim)
