Croatia will travel to Windsor Park to play Northern Ireland in a friendly on Tuesday 15th November.

The game will be staged four days after Northern Ireland host Azerbaijan in a World Cup 2018 qualifier at the South Belfast stadium.

The Croats boast a star-studded squad including Real Madrid playmaker Luka Modric, Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic, Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic and Inter Milan midfielder Ivan Perisic.

"This will be a great game for us. Croatia are a top-class European team and it's great that we will be playing them at home," said Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill

"We have not played a home friendly against this quality of opposition for quite some time.

"It will no doubt be a real test for us, and it will also provide us with an opportunity to look at some of the players in our squad who have not featured in the team much before now."
