Safet Susic will face journalists next Monday and recite 23 names that will be on the passenger list on the flight to Rio.

However, not many surprises are expected. On more than one occasion, the man himself admitted that his selection is very limited and that he has to rely on the team that he had in the qualifiers. 

The difference in quality between first-choice players and their alternatives is huge, so Susic has pinned his hopes to a nucleus that has been built in the previous three campaigns.

This is the same generation that lost to Portugal in the play-offs twice, but also had France on the ropes in Paris in 2011 when a controversial Samir Nasri penalty denied them a place in Poland and Ukraine.

The generation that began its rise under the guidance of Miroslav Blazevic in 2008 has now matured and will be at its peak in Brazil.
