Croa­tia se­cure progress

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Total Football -

Croa­tia made it five play-offs un­beaten as they drew 0-0 in Greece to qual­ify for the World Cup fi­nals 4-1 on ag­gre­gate. Hav­ing done the hard work four days ear­lier by tri­umph­ing in the first leg in Za­greb, Zlatko Dalic’s team fin­ished the job com­fort­ably against a muchim­proved Greek team. But the at­mos­phere was in­tim­i­dat­ing and Luka Mo­dric was pic­tured squint­ing when a laser was shone into his eye. Croa­tia also qual­i­fied for the World Cup via the play-offs in 1998 and 2014.
