2022年世界盃:克羅地亞在周三F組的第一場比賽中面對摩洛哥

最後更新日期:.來自世界盃部分

中場球員盧卡-莫德里奇希望克羅地亞在周三對陣摩洛哥的2022年世界盃揭幕戰中,能在他們的世界盃歷史上寫下新的篇章。

"我們在2018年所經歷的是一次難忘的經歷,在我們的腦海中不可磨滅,"這位克羅地亞隊長說。

"我們會談論它,並在我們的餘生中進行回憶,但我們需要把它放在一邊。"

現年37歲的莫德里奇在俄羅斯領取了金球獎,因為他是該賽事的最佳球員,他還說:"俄羅斯世界盃的許多球員都不在這裡,新的球員來了,高質量的年輕球員有新鮮的能量。

"這是一項新的賽事,我們必須這樣看待它。

"我們被寄予厚望,全力以赴,把最後的力量留在球場上。

"如果這意味着我們得到了好的結果,那麼很好--如果不是,我們必須昂首挺胸,因為我們已經盡力了。"

在Al Khor的Al Bayt體育場進行的比賽是周三(北京時間10:00)的第一場比賽,也是F組的首場比賽,該組還包括世界排名第二的比利時隊和1986年以來首次參加世界盃的加拿大隊。

克羅地亞在排名中位列第12位,比摩洛哥高出10位,該國曾參加過五屆大賽,但只在1986年從小組賽階段出線過一次。

Walid Regragui在三個月前取代Vahid Halilhodzic成為摩洛哥主教練,他的首要任務之一是將切爾西中場球員Hakim Ziyech召回國家隊。

"Regragui說:"我們的球員將需要哈基姆-齊耶赫的最佳表現。"當哈基姆有這種信心時,他是世界上最頂尖的球員之一。

"我們需要他的質量,他將付出一切。

"這將是一場非常困難的比賽,我們將適應並全力以赴。我們將表現出巨大的動力,並尊重對手。

"當然,克羅地亞在這場比賽中是最受歡迎的--他們參加了上屆世界盃的決賽,並且擁有金球獎球員盧卡-莫德里奇。

"重要的是我們以積極的態度踢摩洛哥的足球,付出一切,之後我們就沒有遺憾了。"

摩洛哥後衛Nayef Aguerd已經從季前賽中的腳踝傷勢中恢復過來,儘管本賽季西漢姆只在英超聯賽中出場一次--在11月12日2-0擊敗萊斯特的比賽中作為替補。

克羅地亞沒有新的傷病問題,切爾西中場馬泰奧-科瓦契奇儘管最近與膝傷作鬥爭,但可以出場。

  • 沒有 這是摩洛哥和克羅地亞在世界盃上的第一次交鋒。他們之前唯一的一次交鋒是1996年12月在卡薩布蘭卡舉行的哈桑二世獎盃賽中。這場比賽以2比2結束,產生了三張紅牌。克羅地亞在點球大戰中以7-6獲勝。
  • 沒有 克羅地亞在對陣非洲對手的兩場國際足聯世界盃比賽中以6-0的總比分獲勝(2014年4-0對喀麥隆,2018年2-0對尼日利亞)。
  • 無 這將是摩洛哥第六次參加世界盃,但自1986年以來,他們還沒有通過小組賽,當時他們在16強中最終被德國淘汰(1-0輸掉)。
  • 無 這是克羅地亞第六次參加世界盃。在之前的五次中,他們要麼在小組賽階段被淘汰(三次),要麼至少進入半決賽(兩次,包括2018年的決賽)。

Midfielder Luka Modric wants Croatia to write a new chapter in their World Cup history when they face Morocco in their 2022 tournament opener on Wednesday.

"What we went through in 2018 was an unforgettable experience, indelible in our minds," the Croatia captain said.

"We will speak about it and be having recollections for the rest of our lives, but we need to put it aside."

Modric, now 37, collected the Golden Ball award in Russia for being the tournament's best player and added: "Many players at the Russia World Cup are not here, new players have come, quality young players with fresh energy.

"This is a new tournament and we have to look at it that way.

"We're expected to play our hearts out, give our best and leave the last atom of strength on the pitch.

"If this means we get good results, then great - if not, we have to keep our heads high knowing we gave our best."

The match at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor is the first game on Wednesday (10:00 GMT) and the opening one in a Group F which also contains a Belgium side ranked second in the world and a Canada team playing in their first World Cup since 1986.

Croatia are 12th in the rankings, 10 places above Morocco, a nation that has played at five previous tournaments but only made it out of the group phase once, in 1986.

Walid Regragui replaced Vahid Halilhodzic as Morocco head coach just three months ago and one of his first tasks was to recall Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech to the national side.

"Our players will need the best of Hakim Ziyech," Regragui said. "When Hakim has this confidence, he is one of the top players in the world.

"We need him with his quality and he will give everything.

"It's going to be a very difficult match, we will adapt and play our hearts out. We will show great motivation and respect for the opponents.

"Of course, Croatia are favourites in this game - they played in the final of the last World Cup and have the Golden Ball player in Luka Modric.

"What's important is we play Morocco's football with a positive attitude, give everything and afterwards we have no regrets."

Morocco defender Nayef Aguerd has recovered from the ankle injury he picked up in pre-season, despite only making one West Ham appearance in the Premier League this season - as a substitute in the 2-0 loss against Leicester on 12 November.

Croatia have no fresh injury concerns, with Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic available despite struggling with a knee injury recently. • None This is the first encounter between Morocco and Croatia at a World Cup. Their only previous meeting was in the Hassan II Trophy in December 1996, played in Casablanca. The game ended 2-2, producing three red cards. Croatia won 7-6 on penalties. • None Croatia have won their two Fifa World Cup games against African opposition by an aggregate of 6-0 (4-0 v Cameroon in 2014, 2-0 v Nigeria in 2018). • None This will be Morocco's sixth appearance at the World Cup, but they have not progressed past the group stage since 1986, when they were eventually eliminated by Germany in the last 16 (losing 1-0). • None This is Croatia's sixth World Cup appearance. In the previous five, they have either been eliminated in the group stages (three times) or at least reached the semi-finals (twice, including the final in 2018).
