Marko Pjaca (28) was thrilled a month ago when he was named to the Croatian national team for matches against Latvia and Armenia. Although many people expected Marc Pašalić to be called and Pjaca to only have a chance of making the list, Pjaca expressed his readiness and excitement for the call-up, stating that he is physically prepared and eager to be back in the national team. However, his happiness was short-lived as he suffered muscle pain and had to withdraw from the team to recover for the next match. Not long after, he was ruled out of competing in the next match as well.
Pjaca opened up about his career, expressing that he believes everything happens for a reason. He reflected on his injuries and how he tried not to dwell on them but instead focused on recovery and moving forward. He also talked about watching the matches on TV and how he keeps the silver medal from the 2018 World Championship in a special place at home.
Throughout his career, Pjaca has struggled with injuries and has had difficulty maintaining a consistent string of games. Despite these setbacks, he remains determined to make a full recovery and continue his career. He is grateful for the opportunities he has had and is hopeful to return to competition soon.
