Diary

Friday, 2 November 2007 -  Slaven Bilic has named his 23-man squad for their decisive Euro 2008 qualifiers against Macedonia and England.  Manchester City defender Vedran Corluka is included, along with Portsmouth midfield man Niko Kranjcar and Arsenal striker Eduardo Da Silva.  Bilic said: "We are facing two very difficult away games.  I hope we won't have any problems with injuries. Other than that, we have nothing to be afraid of."  Defender Hrvoje Vejic, who plays for Russian club Tom Tomsk, is the only real surprise in the squad while Jerko Leko misses out through suspension.
