Beljo receives first call-up for Croatia’s senior team

UEFA Nations League, then U21 Euros

First Team 12.06.2023, 13:49

FCA striker Dion Beljo has been called up for Croatia’s senior team for the first time in his career. They will face the Netherlands in the UEFA Nations League semi-finals on Wednesday, 14th June (20:45 CEST).

Beljo has been selected as a replacement for centre-back Joško Gvardiol, who has left camp with an injury. “It’s an honour for me to be called up to the national team. The Nations League is a big competition,” said the 21-year-old, who took part in team training last week.

Croatia are looking to book their place in the final, which will be played in Rotterdam on Sunday, 18th June (20:45 CEST). The winners of the tournament are guaranteed a place at EURO 2024 in Germany next summer. The losing semi-finalists will play a third place play-off also on Sunday (18:00 CEST). 

Beljo’s summer will continue after the Nations League. He is in Croatia’s squad for the U21 European Championships in Romania and Georgia, alongside teammate David Čolina.
