Nobody will give us anything for free. We will have to put in a huge effort to get a good result. I am satisfied with our progress but we have not finished the job. [Azerbaijan coach] Prosinečki has implemented a new style of play to his side, and with the fans behind them he will be very confident. But, I believe in my team.

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."
