Croatia's Niko Kranjcar insists that Wednesday night's Group E decider at Wembley will not be a straightforward procession to Euro 2008 for England.
Croatia are through to Austria and Switzerland but jubilation is tinged with frustration after the loss of their unbeaten qualifying record in the rain and mud of Macedonia on Saturday evening. Kranjcar insists that the team who reached the World Cup semi-finals nine years ago want to show they can be contenders again next summer.
