Croatia are up and running on the road to Euro 2012, while Greece know they must do better.

Group F looks like being keenly contested, with any number of sides harbouring ambitions of snatching a top-two finish.

Croatia, though, appear to be strong favourites to take top spot, with a 3-0 win over Latvia on Friday seeing them put down an early marker.

Mladen Petric put them on their way after 42 minutes in what could have been a tricky trip out on the road.

Ivica Olic then added a second on 51 minutes, before Darjo Srna put the seal on a comprehensive success eight minutes from time.

Elsewhere, Greece were held to a 1-1 draw on home soil by Georgia.

A point would not have been what the Greeks had hoped for ahead of kick-off, but it could have been a lot worse.

Alexander Iashvili handed the visitors a shock lead with just three minutes on the clock, but that effort was cancelled out when Nikos Spyropoulos spared the hosts' blushes on 72 minutes.
