Croatia are hugely optimistic ahead of tonight's big match against Italy at San Siro. After all, Italy have not defeated Croatia since the country declared independence.

"I look forward to the matches like this one – it will be 
spectacular. Our opponents are among the best team in the world," said Croatia star Luka Modrić. "The atmosphere is great in our dressing room and traditionally we are good against big opponents. I believe we will be happy after the match in Milan."
