The Tottenham midfielder missed his nation's 3-0 win over Latvia on Friday with a thigh problem but is in line to return for Tuesday's encounter.

Modric could even start the clash as Croatia look to continue their good start to their campaign, which saw them top Group F after the opening round of matches.

Croatia failed to qualify for the World Cup finals in South Africa this summer and coach Slaven Bilic admits the setback saw confidence levels drop.

But he is confident his side are back on track following their morale-lifting defeat of Latvia last week.

Bilic said: "I'm not only delighted because of the victory against Latvia but because we thought Latvia would be our most difficult away match.

"We had a dip in confidence after World Cup qualifying but we shouldn't be euphoric just yet."
