Before the break, Perišić had two more promising opportunities, while Modrić and Pašalić also tried to score, but a one-goal lead still stood when the second half begun - with four substitutions made by head coach Dalić

A couple of further chances were missed - Rebić, Kramarić, and Perišić couldn't find the target - and Armenia responded with an equalizer, to continue its nine-match unbeaten streak. Wbeymar produced a screamer to make it 1:1.

On 6 June, Croatia visits Belgium in Brussels, and faces England in the first EURO 2020 challenge, on 13 June in London.
