Marko Pjaca (28) was ecstatic when he received the call to be a part of the Croatian national team for the matches against Latvia and Armenia. Although many people predicted Marc Pašalić to be called, Pjaca was overjoyed at the opportunity and expressed his readiness to return to the national team. However, his excitement was short-lived as he suffered from muscle pain and had to withdraw from the next match.
Despite this setback, Pjaca remains determined to recover and continue his career. He has always struggled with injuries and has faced challenges in playing a consistent string of games throughout his career. Nevertheless, he believes that everything happens for a reason and tries not to focus too much on his injuries but rather on recovery and moving forward.
Pjaca opened up about his career, reflecting on how he keeps the silver medal from the 2018 World Championship in a special place at home. Watching the matches on TV has been a source of inspiration for him, and he is grateful for the opportunities he has had so far in his career. Despite these difficulties, Pjaca remains hopeful that he will return to competition soon.
