Semi-sational – Josip Juranovic shines as Croatia knock Brazil out of the World Cup

Twitter has been blowing up over the performance of Celtic full-back, Josip Juranovic against Brazil this afternoon in Qatar as Croatia reached the World Cup semi-finals ant the expense of the favourites after winning a penalty shoot-out 4-2 after a 1-1 AET draw. The Celtic defender has been really impressive throughout this World Cup and continued his fine form in today’s Quarter-final tie versus the Samba Stars.

Interest in Josip is bound to peak after this tournament but the fee that many have predicated has almost certainly been blown wide open after his display in the last-eight tie with Neymar and co. Hugh MacDonald had suggested that the Hoops would be looking for £10 million plus for Juranovic and I think that would be considered derisory now in light of recent events.

Twitter has been buzzing with people talking about the Croatian international and BBC are raving about him too. Jermaine Jenas and the punditry panel of Alex Scott, Jurgen Klinsmann, and Micah Richards are waxing lyrical over the display from the man Ange Postecoglou signed from Legia Warsaw.

Take a look at some of the reaction to Jura’s performance:

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.
