Croatia set Saudi date

Croatia will play a friendly against Saudi Arabia in Zagreb on 28 March four days after their UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifier against F.Y.R. Macedonia.

Croatia have arranged to play a friendly against Saudi Arabia in Zagreb on 28 March four days after their UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifier against F.Y.R. Macedonia.

Poor surface
The current Group E leaders will face the side placed 64th in the world in the most recent FIFA rankings after playing F.Y.R. Macedonia in Zagreb. Slaven Bilić's side are due to start 2007 with a friendly game against Norway in Rijeka on 7 February, although the condition of the pitch may force the Croatian Football Federation to switch the game to an alternative venue.
