Bilic: Pranic ended with the national

bilic out from coratia national team

Croatia coach Slaven Bilic was adamant that defender Daniel Pranic will not play for their suffering, while he was national coach. The reaction of the specialist comes after the defender refused to shake hands with him after a friendly game between Croatia and Ireland in Dublin.

29-year-old has recorded Pranic 39 appearances for Croatia since 2004. Recently, the defender is used primarily as a reserve, as was the case for equality and 0-0 on Wednesday.

"Pranic showed dissatisfaction with the status in the team. No longer rely on it. This is not punishment, but a permanent solution, "coach Bilic was adamant.

Croatia next month renew their European qualification with a match against Israel in Zagreb. Currently the team is in second place in Group F, a point behind Greece.
