Eduardo ensures Croatia retain second spot

ANDORRA LA VELLA - Two goals in the first half gave Croatia a 2-0 win over Andorra to retain second place in World Cup qualifying Group Six on Wednesday. Croatia opened the game with a series of promising crosses by Darijo Srna and opened the scoring in the 15th minute through Ivan Klasnic's precise shot from the edge of the box. The pace of the game then slowed down with Croatia creating few chances and Andorra rarely venturing past the centre of the pitch until a random cross from Klasnic was slotted in by Eduardo da Silva in the 35th minute. The entire second half saw Croatia, who have 10 points from five games, dominant but failing to create any serious opportunities to increase their lead.
