Dalic is looking forward to leading the team in Russian Federation.

Dalic came in on a game-by-game basis, and after securing victory against Ukraine (2-0) and then against Greece (4-1) in the playoffs, the 50-year-old made the decision to offer him the position an easy one. Croatia also confirmed their place at the tournament with a goalless draw against Greece, following a 4-1 victory in the first leg. With three goals advantage in his hands he set a strong defense. As we agreed quickly when we first met, we have again reached an agreement very quickly, which proves that we have a common interest, which is the success of the Croatian team. With that in mind, it is hard to predict which team will win so I think the result is a bet which we should definitely avoid in this game. "The players did their job and they've earned their very well deserved place at the World Cup", Dalic said after the match in Piraeus.

Greece coach Michael Skibbe dropped half of his players from the disastrous first-leg showing in Zagreb, and the return of Roma defender Kostas Manolas kept Croatia striker Nikola Kalinic in check. "It would be insane not to put Dalic at this position".

Zlatko Dalic will continue coaching the Croatian football team after reaching agreement with Croatian Football Federation (CFF) President Davor Suker during a meeting here on Tuesday. Tonight we were excellent and Croatia were not good.

The financial terms shouldn't be a problem as CFF has earned eight million United States dollars by reaching the World Cup.

On December 1, at the official draw in Moscow, Croatia will hope for a group that would help its chances to make it to the knockout stage, something that didn't happen since 1998 in France when the team won a bronze medal and put the small southeastern European country on the world map of football. However, despite having more possession, chances were few and far between and they failed to test Croatian goalkeeper Danijel Subasic until the 87th minute with Panagiotis Tachtsidis having his shot saved.
