    Does he or Halilovic have a younger brother in the u17s? Because I remember seeing a familiar name, but can't remember which it was.

    Edit: Maybe it was Halilovic...

    I was very impressed with that I saw.
    Me too. Pretty cool that he made his international debut in such an important game, and even better that he had a very good performance. At first I was very skeptical about timac deciding to play with no DMs, but it went well and turned out great for Kovačić. Well done.

    Halilovic is more talented but as it looks more stupid as well, he is a "star"...Kovacic is down to earth.

    He's great at driving forward, loses the ball a bit too much atm. Very talented though at only 18.

    As a raw player that's very understandable


    Some of these dribbles are very Iniesta-like with more forward-direction.

    Yep many people quickly see that resemblance to Iniesta in his game. One of the very few bright prospects of Inter this season. Hope the new coach gets the best out of him next season.

    He should play a more attacking possition, wastes too much stamina in transition. Will be a great player in few years

    Eh disagree. Some players benefit from starting in more reserved positions because they are best at running forward full force and startling the defenders as they run by.

    Exactly. Kovacic himself said recently that his preferred position is CM.

    I still think he'd be used much better at AMF.
