Zlako Dalić's men, already qualified for the World Cup, used the March international window to visit the host country and test some options for the upcoming challenges.

Against Slovenia, Croatia took the lead as Ćaleta-Car found Kramarić, who fired past Oblak in one of rare first-half opportunities. Perišić soon came close to second.

After the break, Modrić and Juranović tried a shot, while Livaja and Oršić couldn't find the target in the closing minutes to seal Croatia's win.

A minute into added time, Slovenia capitalized on a corner, as Bijol's header crossed the line to secure a 1:1 draw.
