Croatia coach offers resignation

Croatia coach Igor Stimac claims he offered his resignation after a 2-0 defeat to Scotland in their World Cup qualifier on Tuesday evening.

Despite progressing to the play-offs courtesy of a second-placed finish in Group A, Stimac insists Croatia’s performances under his command have simply not been good enough.

"It is a bad defeat I have to say. I offered my resignation because of the latest results of the national team," said Stimac.

"I need to show a moral responsibility and if there is anyone who doesn't believe in my work in Croatia I want to give them the chance to change something now."

Croatia were already assured a spot in the play-offs prior to the loss, but failed to register a win in their final four World Cup qualifiers.

Stimac’s Scotland counterpart Gordon Strachan, meanwhile, was pleased his side were able to end their campaign on a high in front of their home fans at Hampden.

"It was a nice way to finish the week. It's been enjoyable but hard work and when you put that kind of hard work in it's always nice to get a performance and a win," Strachan said.

"It was a big difference from the first game against Wales but the players have gradually turned it around and they can be really proud of themselves."
