Hareide pointed out that Croatia is a team that can defend and attack well with a flexible group of players who are able to adapt to different situations. Victorious in all three of their group games, they are the fourth highest-scoring side in the competition and have played some vibrant football at times, not least in the heavy defeat of Argentina.

Marcelo Brozovic can provide stability at the base of midfield, Ivan Perisic is unsafe on the flank and Hoffenheim's Andrej Kramaric is an effective playmaker. A Denmark clearance attempt from its own area bounced off a defender, right into the path of Mario Mandzukic. Perisic's pace and end product can prove to be the difference between the two sides.
