Croatia beat Iceland 2-0 in Zagreb to book their place at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil next summer – despite playing much of the contest with ten men.

Mario Mandžukić opened the scoring on 27 minutes but was sent off shortly after making the breakthrough. Captain Darijo Srna struck to ease any nerves almost immediately after half-time, inflicting a body blow from which Iceland never recovered.
