Croatia head coach Zlatko Dalić has selected the players for the upcoming encounters with Denmark and Austria, on two final UEFA Nations League matchdays.

Following a home defeat against Austria and a home draw with France, Croatia won in Denmark and France to reach the second place in Group A1. In September, Zlatko Dalić's men can secure the Final Four berth. 

Croatia hosts Denmark in Zagreb (22 September, 20:45) and visits Austria in Vienna (25 September, 20:45), with 25 players on Dalić's list, and seven more on stand-by.

"As usual, at the beginning of the season, there are challenges like injuries, transfers, and club status. This squad does reflect our thought before the World Cup, but several spots are still open. We did a great job in Denmark and France, these performances produce self-confidence and now we have a chance to reach the Nations League final tournament. That would be an extraordinary result, considering our opponents, but it will not be an easy task. We respect both Denmark and Austria, and we require team spirit and unity. We want to win, but we also need to prepare for the World Cup", Dalić said.

Croatia squad for Denmark and Austria:

Goalkeepers: Dominik Livaković, Lovre Kalinić, Ivica Ivušić

Defenders: Domagoj Vida, Dejan Lovren, Borna Barišić, Josip Juranović, Joško Gvardiol, Borna Sosa, Josip Stanišić, Martin Erlić, Josip Šutalo

Midfielders: Luka Modrić, Mateo Kovačić, Marcelo Brozović, Mario Pašalić, Nikola Vlašić, Lovro Majer, Luka Sučić

Forwards: Ivan Perišić, Andrej Kramarić, Bruno Petković, Mislav Oršić, Ante Budimir, Marko Livaja

Stand-by Josip Brekalo, Duje Ćaleta-Car, Luka Ivanušec, Marin Pongračić, Kristijan Jakić, Antonio Mirko Čolak, Nediljko Labrović
