Bilic wary of Turkey fightback
Croatia 3 Turkey 0
Tuesday 15 November 2011
Croatia coach Slaven Bilic has forbidden complacency from his players despite their 3-0 first leg lead against Turkey. "We have already forgotten the game in Istanbul," Bilic said. "The first thing we all said in the dressing room was that we are only halfway through our task because we face a difficult 90 minutes on our own turf."
Bilic will be without the suspended Vedran Corluka and Tomislav Dujmovic. Turkey manager Guus Hiddink has Arda Turan, Sabri Sarioglu, Emre Belozoglu and Hakan Balta suspended. Turan told a Turkish newspaper Hiddink's "timidity" was to blame for Friday's result.
