With Spain and Italy in the same group, Croatia is going to have some work to do at the European Championship. Michel Vorm Hotspur Shirts . The Croatians reached the quarterfinals four years ago, and a large chunk of the team that lost to Turkey are back for the tournament in Poland and Ukraine. "We showed in 2008 that we know how to play and we will be ready again," Croatia coach Slaven Bilic said. "We went to Austria (in 2008) to win the Euros and we are going with the same ambitions now." Euro 2012 will mark the fourth time Croatia has played in the tournament since gaining independence from Yugoslavia 21 years ago. The team qualified by beating Turkey in the playoffs, but in return they were handed a tough draw. Croatia will open Group C against Ireland on June 10 in Poznan before facing Italy and defending champion Spain. "Croatia have always been capable of winning big games against the favourites," midfielder Darijo Srna told UEFA. "We can choose between an easy way of qualifying, or a harder way of doing it -- the easy way being to win the first game against Ireland, take three points, and then try to get those additional points in the other two matches." Croatia has a number of creative talents -- including Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric and Bayern Munich striker Ivica Olic -- that will look to unlock the Irish defence, which has only conceded three goals over the past year. "They are tough, strong, well-organized and defend very well," Bilic said. "The only surprise would be if Trapattoni made them more attacking ... but that would only make us happier." Much will rest on the silky skills of Modric, who has been an integral part of a Tottenham team that briefly challenged for the Premier League title. Olic, who is headed for Wolfsburg and at 32 may be playing in his final major international football tournament, could also be key, especially if he manages to win the Champions League with Bayern later this month. Bilic will also have one of the most inform European strikers at his disposal. Though he has yet to establish himself in the first team, Nikica Jelavic will be hoping to carry his form from English club Everton into the tournament. He has scored 10 goals in 15 appearances since his arrival at the end of January. "Modern football is so competitive, physical and tight so you need a player up front who can hold the ball but is always very dangerous in the box," Bilic said. "Nikica is good in the build up, good in every part of the game really, and is also very hard for an opponent to mark."

Two weeks after the Kings became NHL royalty for a second time; sitting on top of the hockey world, Stanley Cup in hands.LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Clippers President Andy Roeser is taking an indefinite leave of absence while the NBA restructures the franchise in the wake of owner Donald Sterlings lifetime ban. Roesers immediate departure was announced Tuesday by the NBA. The league announced plans last week to appoint a CEO to oversee the franchise in Sterlings absence. "This will provide an opportunity for a new CEO to begin on a clean slate and for the team to stabilize under difficult circumstances," NBA spokesman Mike Bass said. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life, fined him $2.5 million and urged owners to force him to sell the Clippers a week ago, responding to league-wide outrage over racist comments made by the 80-year-old real-estate mogul. Sterling is the NBAs longest-tenured owner after buying the Clippers in 1981. Roeser, one of the Clippers alternate governors, is one of the leagues longest-tenured executives, having just completed his 30th season with the team. Roeser has been a loyal frontman for Sterling since the franchises days in San Diego, and he stood by Sterling during every controversial stretch of the owners career. Only radio and television play-by-play announcer Ralph Lawler has worked for the Clippers longer than the 54-year-old Roeser, who became team president in 2007. But Roeser infuriated many longtime Clippers employees last week after Sterlings private conversation was made public by TMZ. While nearly everyone else was reacting with outrage, Roeser released a statement questioning whether the recordings of Sterling were legitimate, while simultaneously apologizing on Sterlings behalf for sentiments about Magic Johnson on the recordings. Eric Dier Hotspur Jersey. Roesers statement was sympathetic to Sterling and criticized V. Stiviano, Sterlings longtime associate and the other voice on the recordings. Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Roesers statement upset many loyal Clippers employees who had been horrified by Sterlings comments. Rivers held meetings with much of the Clippers front-office staff last week while Sterling was ousted, encouraging them to keep working for the franchise. Roeser joined the organization in 1984 from an accounting firm. Two years later, he became executive vice-president, overseeing all facets of the teams business operations. He has been president of the Los Angeles Clippers Foundation since it began in 1994. He helped bring Rivers to Los Angeles from the Boston Celtics last June, and was part of the acquisition of All-Star guard Chris Paul in 2011. Roeser also oversaw the development and construction of the teams training facility that opened in 2008. Rivers is the Clippers senior vice-president of basketball operations, working alongside executive vice-president of player personnel Gary Sacks on the basketball side of the teams operations. The Clippers overcame the distraction of Sterlings banishment to outlast Golden State in a seven-game first-round series on Saturday night. After just one day off, they returned to the court and trounced Oklahoma City 122-105 on the road Monday night in the opener of their Western Conference semifinal series.
