Dalic took over the team led by Luka Modric, one of the best midfielders in the world, and will try to stay undefeated against Ukraine in Kiev in the last 2018 World Cup qualifying match scheduled for Monday night.

The victory of Ukrainian team may secure its reaching the World Cup finals if Croatia loses in the last match of the group stage.

Modric did not support Cacic after the game, as Croatia are in danger of losing their playoff spot.

"What do we do [with Coach Ante Cacic] now?"

Friday's draw left Croatia second in Group I of European qualifying for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation, on 17 points alongside Ukraine, with Iceland in pole on 19. We spoke to the players, they are professionals, they know coach depends on results.

Dalicho immediately have to deal with serious competitive objectives - October 9 Croatia in the final match of world Cup qualifiers in Kiev on NSK "Olympic" will play with Ukraine. The Football Association, where the ones at the top outnumber the football team itself, will have to face some shock therapy ahead of the last qualifying match for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"It was turbulent night, we figured out the team was missing something - we won four of a possible 12 points in last four matches".

He added that Dalic 'will lead the team in the crucial game against Ukraine and we are hoping for a positive outcome'.

Dalic, who was most recently in charge of Al-Ain in the United Arab Emirates, is the man tasked with sparking an immediate turnaround in fortune.
