Croatia coach Kovac sacked for poor results in Euro qualis

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) Croatia coach Niko Kovac was sacked on Wednesday for poor results in 2016 European Championship qualifiers.

Croatia has only one point from the last two games, a 0-0 draw in Azerbaijan and a 2-0 defeat in Norway. The Croatians lie third in Group H.

Potential successors will be interviewed in the next 10 days, said Davor Suker, the head of the Croatian Football Federation. He gave no names.

Kovac took over from Igor Stimac in 2013, and led Croatia to the 2014 World Cup.

Croatia was stripped of one point in Euro 2016 qualifying after a swastika was painted on the field before a match against Italy in June.
