Croatia won their match against Estonia, 1-0 in a Euro 2008 qualifier and the goal came from Eduardo Da Silva, Croatia’s Brazil born sensation a.k.a Dudu. He now has 6 goals in 6 appearances including a hat trick against Israel in a tough road victory and a looping header over Paul Robinson (a game that the Tottenham goalie would love to forget) that gave Croatia victory over England.
Eduardo Da Silva, Mladen Petric, and Ivan Klasnic have scored 16 goals while the defense anchored by Robert Kovac, Dario Simic,and Vedran Korluca have only given away four for an impressive +12 goal differential in the Euro qualifiers.
Croatia is now on top of group E with Israel and Russia trailing them. England is in fourth position. This week will see crucial group encounters with Croatia taking on Russia and England playing Estonia this Wednesday, 6th June.
Eduardo Da Silva has mentioned that his favourite club is Sevilla and he would like to leave Dinamo Zagreb at the top of his game. More on Da Silva and a YouTube clip of his 31 goals for Dinamo.
