Ivan Perišić: “Canada surprised us but there is no fear.”

Speaking before Croatia’s World Cup meeting with Canada in Group F, Tottenham and Croatian forward Ivan Perišić explained his team had no fear for their Canadian opponents while praising former Bayern Munich teammate Alphonso Davies. The 33-year-old said:

“Canada surprised us with how much they ran and pressed. That’s the key. We have to be competitive and aggressive at that level, but there is no fear, if we are the real Croatia everything will be fine. Although, they were better against Belgium... [Davies and I] played several games together and I really enjoyed playing with him on the left side. I don’t know how best to describe him, he has speed, ease of movement and he has progressed, the sky is the limit. But other Canadians are good too but I’m eager to show what we can do and I’m hopeful of success.”
