GNK Dinamo Zagreb Identification Clinic

Marin City Sausalito FC in partnership with California Youth Sports Management and Dave Fromer Soccer is hosting the 2nd annual GNK Dinamo Zagreb Youth Academy Identification Clinic. This is an Identification clinic we are brining right here to southern Marin where academy coaches will observe players and may identify those with potential to be invited to train at the Dinamo academy in Croatia.

Learn from one of the world’s top youth academies know for developing some of the best Croatian players in the world including Luka Modric, Mateo Kovacic, Eduardo de Silva, Dejan Lovren, Marcelo Brozovic, Dominik Livakovic (goalkeeper) and many more. The influence of GNK Dinamo Zagreb on the Croatian national team, and the one that reached the World Cup final in 2018, is incredible — eight players in the squad in Qatar, including Croatia’s greatest ever player Luka Modric, were developed by the club.

Croatia is ranked 7th in the world despite having a population of only 3.9 Million people. In comparison, California has 39.2 Million and the Bay Area alone has 7.9 Million. Given these statistics, it’s clear the Croatian’s are developing youth players so effectively they are considered among the best at producing top players worldwide. Croatia, a small and quite beautiful country, has outperformed top European countries in Fifa rankings including Spain, Belgium and Italy, they’ve been able to outrank them all and sell players to top clubs like Real Madrid, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspurs, and many more.
