25-Year-Old Forward VfL Wolfsburg Bundesliga
Perisic scored a brace and his first goals of the season Monday as Croatia cruised to a 6-0 win over Azerbaijan in European Qualifying Group H.
Having been out with a shoulder injury, Perisic only played his first game of the season at the end of September. Three Bundesliga and one Champions League appearance later and the Croatian is still to find the net for his club. This game will therefore have been welcome relief with Perisic coming on as a first half substitute and getting two first half goals. First he scored an excellent header from Ivan Rakitic's free-kick and soon after headed a second from Danijel Pranjic's cross. Regardless of the quality of the opposition, the performance means that Perisic is up and running and will be looking to carry this form into Saturday's league fixture with Freiburg.
