On the road to Euro 2016, Balkan nations endure mixed fortunes

Mehmed Bazdarevic has been charged with turning round the fortunes of struggling Bosnia and Herzegovina.

A year ago, Bosnia and Herzegovina was in a football trance when the national team opened their World Cup campaign vs. Argentina in the Maracana stadium. Twelve months after their first-ever major tournament, however, the Bosnians will host Israel in a Euro 2016 qualifier on Friday surrounded in a completely different atmosphere.

Seeded in the first pot for the first time ever the Dragons were, together with Belgium, favourites in a group that also includes Wales, Israel, Cyprus and Andorra, teams...

Rise of Chelsea and Leicester transfer target Andrej Kramaric of Rijeka

Andrej Kramaric, who is being compared to a young Davor Suker, scored in his official debut for Croatia against Malta in August.

Striker Andrej Kramaric is set to join Leicester City's bid to stay in the Premier League, preferring regular first-team football over the lure of Premier League leaders Chelsea. It marks the latest high point in his rise through the footballing ranks.

Kramaric could have been involved in a sensational and historic transfer almost four years ago, after Robert Prosinecki was named the new coach of Red Star Belgrade. Prosinecki moved from Dinamo Zagreb to Red Star himself back in 1987, as a 18-year-old...

Hajduk Split's refusal to play is the latest problem for Croatian football

When the Hajduk Split players walked on to the Poljud Stadion pitch Saturday, the almost 8,000 fans present in the north stand cheered them with loud singing and also lit flares.

Just minutes before, the team had returned from Zagreb, where they were supposed to have played Dinamo, their fiercest rival. However, after some of their supporters were denied access to Maksimir Stadion, Hajduk decided to disobey the rules.

They refused to play the 198th derby which, in the short term, has been registered...

Three Points: Italy vs. Croatia

Croatia respond quickly to Italy's early goal to draw with in this group H clash of the table leaders in a game that was extended due to flares being thrown onto the pitch.

A trio of observations on Italy and Croatia's 1-1 draw in Euro 2016 qualifying.

1. Conte takes the draw

Antonio Conte believes appetite comes with eating -- winning begets winning. Up until now Italy had won all four games since his appointment and another one on Sunday would have matched the record for the best ever start made by an Azzurri coach, as established by Edmondo Fabbri and equalled by Azeglio Vicini.

So why, then, did Conte say before the game that "we don't need to win to be satisfied...

Match-fixing: More regulation needed

OK, so at some point in the past two weeks (at what point -- as you'll see -- is crucially important) a convicted match-fixer named Wilson Raj Perumal decided to chat with a German journalist from the magazine Der Spiegel.

They chose to do so on Facebook (possibly because it's still 2009 where they live, or maybe because Snapchat was unavailable). In the course of the conversation, according to Der Spiegel, Perumal claimed that the Cameroon squad at the World Cup had "seven bad apples in it" and...

Assessment: Croatia's disappointment

Croatia failed to deliver on its pre-World Cup promise, and ESPN FC blogger Aleks Holiga looks back at the highs and lows of their brief campaign.

One sentence, World Cup recap

Croatia disappointed by not playing to its strengths and bowed out having fallen apart in the key match against a really well organised Mexico side.

Star Man

Much to everyone's surprise, it wasn't any of the key players. Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic all showed a somewhat average form with only a few flashes...
