Zlatko Dalic and his men have a rather uphill task in terms of securing their place in the World Cup competition.

Two losses and a draw prior to this competition gives them a lot to think about and base their preparations accordingly. Making sure they bring the best of their quality to this game will be optimal.

Cyprus have a point to prove in this competition and they can start by trying to come away with the result in their game against Croatia. Their form hasn’t been that of a team that can depend on just that coming into this game. Two losses and a win prior to this in the UEFA nations league gives them something to build on. They need to showcase a whole other level of quality to try and compete against the Croatian team.

Croatia vs Cyprus, Team News :

Dalic has an almost full strength squad for this competition. After Ante Rebić dropped out of the original list due to injury, Bruno Petković, who injured his shoulder during yesterday’s game against Gorica, has now dropped out. Unfortunately, we were left without two important players in the attack. Barring injuries or a suspension in their game against Slovenia, Dalic knows he needs to make sure to make to most of the resources he has.

Cyprus have a full strength squad barring the suspension of Konstantinis Laifis. It’s something positive for them to take into this fixture. Making sure they retain all their resources through their first fixture will be integral as well.
