Marcelo Brozovic name rises throughout the social media recently for some reason. His block against Barcelona in a Champions League known as the ‘crocodile wall’ went viral on Twitter and Instagram.
One had to admit that Brozovic made the way of defending against a freekick looks amazing. A rare piece of defensive art, who deserves a round of applause.
Infamous crocodile wall
The Inter Milan’s midfielder was the fastest to think on another way to stop Barcelona from scoring. Brozovic dived to block the ball using his back body instead of jumping to block a Luis Suarez freekick.
The ball went below the walls of jumping Inter’s defenders. Luckily, crocodile Brozo was there to block it. Besides that, it shows his credibility to think and act fast. Picasso would be proud of that.
Crocodile at home
What an idea to dress like a crocodile for your Halloween. Brozovic might be having the best Halloween ever with his family.
The Croation shared some pictures on his Instagram with the caption ‘Coccodrillo + EpicBroZo’, alongside an emoticon of a crocodile. He received more than 170 000 likes for that post.
Furthermore, not only his sense of humor is increasing but so does his character and performance inside the football pitch.
Inter’s midfield general
Brozovic now turns to be an integral part of Inter’s midfield. Inter have plenty of options in the midfield position. Brozovic’s recent performance earn him his spot in Spaletti’s starting eleven.
He joined the Nerazzurri in January 2015. The signing of Radja Nainggolan from AS Roma earlier this summer meant to booster Inter midfield. Brozovic somehow managed to keep his place.
Although he’s been criticized by his passing ability, the did improve significantly especially in defending as well as scoring goals for the team.
The former Dinamo Zagreb man had been linked to several clubs in recent years. Chelsea, Arsenal, and Manchester United had been linked with Brozovic but he opted to stay at San Siro.
One for the future
The Nerazzurri star was one of the key players for Croation during their historic World Cup campaign. The defensive midfielder play side-by-side with Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic for Croatia. They finished their 2018 FIFA World Cup as runner-up, losing 4-2 to champion France.
This is Croatia best ever achievement in the international stage. The last time they achieved such recognition was during the 1998 World Cup in France. They finished the campaign on 3rd place, with Davor Suker end up as golden boot winner.
Moreover, Brozovic now stands on the right path for becoming one of the world best midfielder.
