Marko Pjaca (28) was thrilled a month ago when he received a call-up to the Croatian national team for matches against Latvia and Armenia. Although many predicted Marc Pašalić would be called, Pjaca was ecstatic about the opportunity and expressed his eagerness to be back in the national team. However, his joy was short-lived as he experienced muscle pain and had to withdraw from the squad for the next game.
Despite his setbacks, Pjaca remained optimistic and reflected on his injuries throughout his career. He emphasized that everything happens for a reason and tried not to let them consume him. He focused on recovery and moving forward, which he believes has helped him become a better player. Pjaca also shared how watching the matches on TV gave him motivation to return to competition as soon as possible.
Throughout his career, Pjaca has faced numerous challenges due to injuries. Despite these obstacles, he remains determined to make a full recovery and continue playing at the highest level possible. He is grateful for the opportunities he has had thus far and is hopeful that one day he will return to competition without any further setbacks.
