Cacic selects Croatia Euro 2016 squad

Ante Cacic has moved to announce his provisional Croatia Euro 2016 squad that will eventually be trimmed to 23 players before 31 May.

Vatreni made it to the tournament finals by finishing second behind Italy in their qualifying group and are set to battle Turkey, Czech Republic and Spain in Group D.

The national team coach has announced his preliminary 27-man squad for the tournament in France, and there have been no major surprises on his list.

As expected, Cacic opted against recalling Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren, while full-back Josip Pivaric remains sidelined through injury.

Red Bull Salzburg defender Duje Caleta-Car and Dinamo Zagreb goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic are on the list, but they are unlikely to travel to France.

Napoli left-back Ivan Strinic returns as Croatia face all sorts of problems on the left hand side, but there is no place for Shakhtar Donetsk striker Eduardo da Silva.

The squad will gather on 20 May in Zagreb and they will face Moldavia and San Marino in final warm-up fixtures for the Euro 2016.

Provisional Croatia Euro 2016 squad: 

Goalkeepers: Danijel Subašić (Monaco), Lovre Kalinić (Hajduk), Ivan Vargić (Rijeka), Dominik Livakovic (Dinamo Zagreb);

Defenders: Darijo Srna (Šahtar), Vedran Ćorluka (Lokomotiv Moscow), Domagoj Vida (Dynamo Kiev), Tin Jedvaj (Bayer Leverkusen), Ivan Strinic (Napoli), Gordon Schildenfeld (Dinamo Zagreb), Šime Vrsaljko (Sassuolo), Duje Caleta-Car (Red Bull Salzburg);

Midfielders: Luka Modrić (Real Madrid), Ivan Rakitić (Barcelona), Ivan Perišić (Inter Milan), Mateo Kovačić (Real Madrid), Milan Badelj (Fiorentina), Marcelo Brozović (Inter Milan), Ante Ćorić (Dinamo Zagreb), Domagoj Antolić (Dinamo), Marko Rog (Dinamo Zagreb), Alen Halilovic (Barcelona);

Strikers: Mario Mandžukić (Juventus), Nikola Kalinić (Fiorentina), Marko Pjaca (Dinamo), Duje Cop (Malaga), Andrej Kramaric (Leicester).
