The Croatian football federation has announced two friendlies for the Croatia national team this autumn.
On 6 September 2018 Croatia will face Portugal in Portugal, just five days ahead of their UEFA Nations League clash.
In October, Croatia will host Jordan for the first time on 15 October 2018, three days after Croatia meets England at home in the UEFA Nations League.
Croatia first played Portugal at the 1996 EURO and lost 3-0. The two nations have also met in friendlies in 2005 (0:2) and in 2013 (0:1). At 2016 EURO, Portugal knocked out Croatia in the quarterfinal.
Croatia’s next friendly will be against Brazil in the UK in June before facing Senegal in Osijek. After the World Cup, Croatia’s UEFA Nations League campaign starts.
