Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic will have his contract extended after qualifying for the World Cup within weeks of being hired.

The Croatian Football Federation (HNS) said its executive committee will "verify this agreement" next week.

Dalic took charge for Croatia's final qualifying group game when coach Ante Cacic was fired after drawing with Finland 1-1 at home.

Under Dalic, Croatia won in Ukraine 2-0, then eliminated Greece in the playoffs 4-1 on aggregate on Sunday.

HNS president Dakor Suker said Dalic "absolutely justified our confidence in him, confirming he was the right choice."
