Croatia head coach Zlatko Dalić and defender Domagoj Vida held a press conference regarding the upcoming friendly international with Jordan.

Zlatko Dalić

"This match will be useful, to give an opportunity to the players who have played less in the national team. They will have a chance to secure their place within the squad in the next matches. I hope for a full crowd, a nice atmosphere, a good performance, and Croatia's victory. Due to minor injury, Kovačić joins Modrić, Rakitić, and Perišić in returning to their respective clubs, and barring other problems, Livaković, Bartolec, Vida, Lovren, Milić, Badelj, Pašalić, Rog, Kramarić, Pjaca and Rebić are the starting lineup. In the second half, Jedvaj, Mitrović, Santini, Livaja, and Bradarić come on. We have seen a video of Jordan, and I know two of their players - one really fast, similar to Sterling. Jordan will try to outplay us, seeking a positive result. Croatia as the World Cup runner-up is now a target, an extra motivation for every opponent, and we must retain our reputation playing at a maximum level. We are now in a winless streak, and we have to start winning. I hope we can play well"

Domagoj Vida

"Being the captain is a special honour, pleasure, and joy. To lead Croatia is an extra motivation, and I would like to thank the head coach for trusting me. Of course, this friendly will be a quality test for some players who are not always in Croatia's starting lineup. We are looking forward to finally have home fans' support, and I hope for a good performance as well, and a win over Jordan, and an enjoyable evening for all the spectators"
