Internazionale Milano's new signing Ivan Perišić belives Croatia will win their next two European Qualifiers, in Azerbaijan and Norway. "We have to score in Azerbaijan as soon as possible as it would be much easier to play after that. I was good in the first match against them, but this will be something different. In Azerbaijan we will be faced with the heat and Norway are very good at home, so we need to be focused and concentrated, as we want to settle things down before the matches against Bulgaria and Malta in October."
The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has decided to impose a deduction of one point on the Croatian Football Federation (HNS) for the qualifying competition of the 2014–16 UEFA European Football Championship.The HNS has also been ordered to play its next two home matches in UEFA competition behind closed doors and not to play any of its remaining qualifying games at the Stadion Poljud in Split. In addition, the HNS has been fined €100,000.
The HNS was facing charges for racist behaviour at last month's European Qualifiers Group H match against Italy in Split, a 1-1 draw.
An appeal must be made within three days of the dispatch of the reasoned decision.
