Step forward Finland's Pyry Soiri who, on his worldwide debut, struck a last-minute equaliser away to Croatia.

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric admits Croatia's World Cup qualifying is on the brink of "catastrophe".

As it stands Iceland lead the group on 19 points, while Croatia and Ukraine are tied for second on 17 points with Turkey just three points behind in fourth place.

If Croatia beat Ukraine then that should seal a playoff spot, however, a draw could see Croatia miss out altogether.

"All was well until the game against Iceland and, suddenly, it could all be for nothing", admitted Modric.

And when asked what went wrong for Croatia, Modric was similarly scathing.

"That's the honest truth, the situation is catastrophic, but we still have a chance to make it right". To be precise - Čačić didn't seem to really know just who we were playing against, instead of keeping his mind on Finland, he was analysing Iceland all the time.

The reason for the resignation Cacica were the poor results of the national team of Croatia in qualifying for the world Cup. "It is unbelievable that we are struggling against teams like Kosovo and Finland, where before we would have beaten them easily". On the eve of "Checkers" missed the victory over Finland (1:1) and nearly lost the chance for direct qualification to the world Cup in Russian Federation.
