The Association of the Football Federation of Azerbaijan (AFFA) have promoted assistant Makhmud Gurbanov to replace departed coach Berti Vogts on an interim basis. 

The former Azerbaijan midfielder, nicknamed the Professor, will lead the team in the next European Qualifiers fixture vs Norway. The 41-year-old will likely be replaced by a permanent coach after matchday four.

Azerbaijan coach Berti Vogts on the upcoming meeting with Croatia:

I watched Croatia's matches against Brazil and Mexico at the World Cup. It will be extremely difficult for us to play against a team like this, but we will do our best to get a decent result. While they are used to playing every three days, such a schedule presents a big challenge for us. I also remember that in 1998, a game against Croatia was my last as Germany coach.
