The match was suspended after 22 minutes of play on Saturday following a downpour that left the Maksimir Stadium pitch unplayable.

It was Vida's first worldwide goal for four years.

Luka Modric claimed Federation Internationale de Football Association "showed they don't care about players" after Croatia beat Kosovo 1-0 in World Cup qualifying, in a fixture played over two days.

Cheered on by 7,000 spectators at Maksimir Stadium on a cloudy but dry Sunday afternoon, the Croatian team tried to score as soon as possible but all their efforts ended up missing the target or in the hands of Kosovo custodian and captain Samir Ujkani.

The victory sees Croatia usurp Ukraine at the top of Group I, while their near-neighbours Kosovo remain bottom. If they did care, they would have postponed the Turkey - Croatia game to Wednesday.
