Croatia secure progress
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.
