Mislav Orsic (30, Zagreb), who honed his skills in the K-League, led Croatia to third place in the 2022 Qatar World Cup with a picturesque final goal.

Croatia won 2-1 with Orsic’s winning goal in the 42nd minute of the first half in the 3rd and 4th place match against Morocco held at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha, Qatar on the 18th (Korean time). He opened the opponent’s goal with a fantastic right-footed kick shot in the 42nd minute when the score was tight at 1-1.

While waiting for a pass from the left corner of the opponent’s penalty area, he fired a shot with his right foot without delay when Marco Libaya (29, Split) poked the ball lightly from the center. It was a difficult position to put strength on his right foot, but Orsic bent his body to the right and hit the ball hard. .

In fact, scoring with an exquisite curve in the left corner of the penalty box, in an angle-free position, is actually a technique Orsic enjoyed using in the K-League. From 2015 to 2018, Orsic played under the registered name ‘Orsha’ in the K-League Jeonnam Dragons and Ulsan Hyundai.

Orsic, who scored 28 goals and 15 assists in 101 matches, wore the uniform of Dinamo Zagreb, the 토토사이트 strongest player in his country, in May 2018 based on his performance in the K-League. The following year, he played an A match for his national team and was also included in the final list for the World Cup in Qatar. In Qatar, Orsic played an active role as an outstanding ‘joker’.

Except for the 3rd match of the group stage (Belgium), she stepped on the ground as a substitute in all matches up to the quarterfinals against Brazil. After delivering the key goal in the second group match against Canada (4-1 win), he helped the dramatic 1-1 equalizer in the 3rd minute as a substitute in the 9th minute of the second half of extra time in the match against Brazil, and was eliminated as the fourth kicker in the penalty shootout. I did my part.

European media also praised Orsic’s winning goal, which was scored with a ‘K winding kick’ that was polished in Korea. Britain’s ‘The Sun’ highlighted Orsici with the main headline ‘OR-SOME’, a combination of Orsic’s name and the word ‘awesome’. ‘Sky Sports’ also praised, “Orsic’s fantastic curve could not stop Yashin’s diving.” ‘Daily Star’ praised it as a “fascinating and high-quality goal”.

A ‘love call’ from the big leagues is expected against him, who fully demonstrated his presence in Qatar by recording 3 attack points (1 goal, 2 assists) in a relatively short 161 minutes. Already at the beginning of the season, there were local reports that Arsenal and Burnley of the English Premier League (EPL) were interested.
