Croatia started off their Euro 2016 qualifier campaign in a positive manner as they grabbed an important home win over lowly Malta side.
Eager to entertain their home crowd, the Balkan side immediately put on an attacking effort since kick off in search for goals.
Despite dominating proceedings, it was far from an easy task for the home side as they failed to score any goals during the first 45 minutes.
After the break, Crotia finally got themselves in front through Luka Modric's effort on 46 minutes.
The host sealed their victory on that tie when Andrej Kramaric snatched his team's second nine minutes from time.
