The national team hopes the midfielder will be at his best to help them beat the 2004 European champions and secure a place in the tournament in Russian Federation.

It was a shame that Switzerland didn't manage to qualify as the first place from group B, but considering they were fighting until the last match for it with European champions Portugal - it goes to tell you just how clean of a favorite they are in this matchup against Northern Ireland.

The game's only goal arrived on 58 minutes with Ricardo Rodriguez converting a penalty. Not exactly fair, but enough to give Switzerland a huge advantage en route to the second leg on Sunday in Basel. A solid defensive performance in Athens on Sunday will send Zlatko Dalic's side to Russian Federation, and this result has put them in pole position to secure the coveted spot. I thought the referee had blown for a foul or an offside.

Croatia took a decisive step toward World Cup qualification Thursday, overwhelming Greece for a 4-1 victory in the first leg of their playoff.

He then netted the second, latching on to a cross by left-back Ivan Strinic.

Greece found a lifeline on the half-hour mark when Sokratis Papastathopoulos headed a corner back across goal, and Marcelo Brozovic could not keep it out despite getting a head to it on the line.

Greece briefly got back into the match when Sokratis Papastathopoulos headed home off a corner kick in the 30th minute moments after the Croatian defense almost fell apart.

The World Cup Playoff matches in Europe have begun, with Croatia and Switzerland taking huge leads to carry into the second legs.

The performance of the evening came at the Maksimir Stadium in Zagreb, as Croatia scored three times in the first half to ease past Greece.

Dalic was named as coach in October after Ante Cacic was sacked following a damaging 1-1 home draw with Finland, as the team ultimately finished a disappointing second to Iceland in Group I. Italy, however, is known to play the most important matches on the highest level, so we still have them as a favorite in this match. "But we have only done half of the job, we should have a good rest and play a good match there (Greece) on Sunday", Modric added.
