Bilic proud of second-stringers

Published Add your comment

Croatia coach Slaven Bilic spoke of his pride after seeing his much-changed side continue their 100% record at Euro 2008 with a 1-0 win over Poland in Klagenfurt.

With Croatia already guaranteed top spot in Group B following victories over Austria and Germany, Bilic opted to shuffle his pack for their final pool match but the newcomers did not disappoint their coach, putting on a convincing display.

A delighted Bilic said: "We are proud for several reasons, firstly it´s a great achievement to win three games in a row, especially at a European Championships. We certainly aren´t the first to do it, but there haven´t been many before us."
