Left-wing provocateurs

Klasnić's goal marked another huge step in a comeback that looked almost unthinkable when he suffered renal failure in January 2007, and he will now be hoping to claim a regular starting berth. As it was, only Rakitić and Pranjić of the lineup that faced Poland had previously started in this tournament, both having featured in the 2-1 defeat of Germany that helped sew up a quarter-final against Turkey on Friday. Coach Slaven Bilić's intention was to give the duo another chance to develop their routines down the left flank, and his plan worked perfectly. The youngsters combined brilliantly all night, orchestrating a vast number of chances – including the goal itself. "I think myself and Danijel work very well together and I'm happy we get to play together," said Rakitić. "I hope we can do just as well against Turkey. We always do a good job."
