Croatia coach Slaven Bilic has accepted his side cannot afford to play for a draw when they face England at Wembley in their final Euro 2008 qualifier.

England require only a point to secure their passage to Austria and Switzerland next year but Croatia have already qualified and a draw would mean they would finish top of Group E. However, the former West Ham defender insists he cannot afford to set up his team to stifle England.

"Nobody is favourite when they play away against England so we would be happy for a point. A point at Wembley is always a good result but you can´t play for a draw," said Bilic.
