Croatia vs Greece live stream Thursday 09 November 2017 FIFA World Cup 2018 Qualification
Croatia vs Greece Thursday, 21:45, Zagreb, Maksimir. Live Stream .
After the draw of the qualifying tournament, Croatia seemed to be the clear favorite of Group I. But the "checkers" frankly failed the second round of selection: defeats from Iceland and Turkey, a minimal victory over Kosovo and a draw with Finland all led to the resignation of Ante Chacic before the end of the selection.

In the last round of Croatia it was necessary to beat Ukraine. With this task, the wards already Zlatko Dalich managed - Kiev's double Andrei Kramarich brought them to the play-offs.

Greeks did not make a miracle in group H - and to outstrip Belgium could only be a miracle. But they fulfilled their task, ahead of the national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is worth noting the reliable defense of the Hellenes - only 6 goals conceded for 10 rounds (3 of them - from Belgium) became the key to success for the team of Michael Skibe. True, against the Croats will not play a fundamental defensive player - Costas Manolas. He received a yellow card for the delay in the last minutes of the 9th round. FIFA considered that the player Roma did it intentionally to "zero" the cards before the playoffs and therefore wrote him another banquet match.


The trainers say:

Zlatko Dalich, Croatia:

"Everything is in our hands, and although we respect Greece, Croatia must show its best qualities." Of course, rain weather would have been more beneficial to Greece, but weather or injuries can not be an excuse for us. about something else.

I believe in this national team. The whole country is waiting for success, and I'm ready. Greece lost only to Belgium, which proves their strong defense and discipline. "


Michael Skibbe, Greece:


"My players, who have extremely high international experience, mainly play in the defense." It would be foolish not to use it.
The Croatians are an incredibly experienced team with such stars as Modric, Rakitic or Manjukich. They are the clear favorites. But in the group match against Belgium (1: 1) we have already shown that we are able to achieve a positive result, being outsiders "
