"We are fine. But we don’t know at what stage of the game we are, whether we are nearing the end of the first half, the second half, but it is certain that we are preparing and that we will play extra time if necessary," concluded Beroš. Adding "The whole of Croatia is on pitch and we are playing a match against coronavirus for the health of the entire nation. It is essential to follow the instructions."
