England boss Fabio Capello was given a glimpse of what to expect next season as Luka Modric got Croatia´s Euro 2008 campaign off to a winning start in the 1-0 victory over Austria.

Capello was at Vienna´s Ernst Happel Stadium to watch the team that knocked England out at the qualifying stage - and they will meet again as they try to reach the next World Cup.

Encouragement for Capello came from some shaky moments in the second half for Slaven Bilic´s side but they held on after Modric, Tottenham´s £16.5million summer signing, had tucked away a fourth-minute penalty.
