Niko Kovač’s side were greeted by arctic-like conditions when they arrived in Reykjavik last night, and it looks like the weather is so bad that they will not get a chance to train at the venue for Friday’s clash.

Laugardalsvöllur stadium is under cover and the teams have been barred from training on the pitch. The weather forced the Croatians to train indoors on Thursday. Kovač has not given much away with regards to a likely starting eleven for tomorrow’s match, although there is speculation he will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Real Madrid’s Luka Modrić and Seville’s Ivan Rakitić in the two defensive midfield roles. 600 fans from Croatia will make the journey to Reykjavik for the match.
