Slaven Bilic believes Croatia´s performance against England at Wembley will show just how far they can go at Euro 2008 next summer.

The pressure is all on Steve McClaren´s men in the final Group E qualifier, as the hosts must avoid defeat to secure a place in Austria and Switzerland. Having finished third in the 1998 World Cup as a player, Bilic knows the current crop of talented Croats have a chance to make history of their own next summer.

"I told the players that we have already started our preparation for Euro 2008 - and we could not imagine a better test than against England," declared Bilic, who had spells at both West Ham and Everton. "I know the strengths of my team and this game will give us a real idea of just how much quality we have at the moment."
