OptaPaolo, the Italian account for football stats company Opta, has posted on social media that Inter’s Ivan Perisic is the top assist provider for Croatia at this summer’s EURO 2020.
Inter fans will be well aware of the 32-year-old Croatian’s impressive creative ability, with the player assisting numerous goals in a Nerazzurri shirt since joining from Wolfsburg in 2015.
Croatia progressed from their group with the help of the Inter man’s important attacking contributions, and he will hope to add to his tally in the knockout rounds.
Opta’s tweet reads: “3 & 4 – Ivan #Perisic is now the Croatia’s top assist provider at the EURO’s (3). The Inter player was directly involved in each of Croatia’s last 4 EURO’s goals (2 goals, 2 assists). Patriot.”
