There was an intense battle with Denmark for the top spot in their Nations League group which Croatia ultimately won by just a point. Defeating Austria 3-1 in the final group game was enough with the favorites France enduring a miserable campaign by finishing second-last in the standings. Croatia won the double over Les Bleus and the Danes and will call it a success con losing their first game of the tournament 3-0 to the Austrians.         

The Euro 2024 Qualifiers in March started their proceedings in 2023. In the first match, the Checkered Ones drew 1-1 with Wales even after leading the game for almost the entirety of the match. The visitors snatched the point with a stoppage-time equalizer from Nathan Broadhead after Andrej Kramaric gave the lead just before the half-hour mark. Dalic’s side did not repeat the mistake in the next game by taking their chances in the 2-0 win at Turkey.
