Croatia opened their FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign with a 1-0 victory over the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Croatia, under the charge of Igor Štimac following Slaven Bilić's departure this summer, are looking to reach their sixth major tournament in seven attempts. They are on the right road in Group A thanks to Everton FC striker Nikica Jelavić's goal midway through the second half.
