The 19-year-old was a rare high point over the final few weeks of Ronald Koeman's tenure as Everton boss and has been rewarded for his form with the chance to earn his second cap for his country.
Vlasic's first appearance for Croatia came in a friendly against Mexico in May but this will be his first senior cap since joining the Blues from Hajduk Split.

What we need is a manager with good experience of getting the best out of young players oh wait.

A potential Everton legend we have here.

I would have felt peeved with the way he was hung out by OFM in press and television interviews.

I wonder whether some just watch the highlights (there's a laugh) and make their mind up from those.

It can only be good as far as experience is concerned, just try to avoid injury please.

Seriously, he does look mint. He seems to get better each time I see him.

That aside, we need some quality German or Brazilian players in our side. Those two national sides are easily the best international teams right now.

Skilful kid with a great attitude who looks like playing for Everton means something to him. Loved that run on Sunday where he beat four men. I hope when he gets the pace of the game he'll stop giving the ball away, but Rooney did it just as much!

Pickford has limitations. He's short for a GK so any shot that goes over his head always seems to go in. He can't glove the ball. How many goals have we conceded where he can't hold onto the ball and gives the enemy a 2nd shot which is more often that not converted into a goal?
He's great at getting down low against low shots (because he is short), but awful at higher aimed shots. Keane looks lost at times. Jags is still the better option. Kenny is bang average, and poor when compared to Seamy at the same age.
