Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic has announced a provisional 32-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™.
This extended list, which will be whittled down to 23 by the 4 June deadline, features no significant surprises or unexpected omissions.
Dalic, who guided Croatia through the European play-offs, will again be pinning his hopes on star players such as Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic, Mario Mandzukic and Ivan Perisic.
All squads are provisional until the final list of 23 players is announced by FIFA, following their submission by participating teams, on 4 June.
