Kovac: Italy are favourites

Croatia Coach Niko Kovac is the first to list Italy as favourites in Group H qualifying for the 2016 European Championships.

The Croats have been paired with the Azzurri as well as Bulgaria, Norway, Azerbaijan and Malta after today’s draw in Nice.

“I am satisfied with the draw, but to be objective, I think Italy are the favourites in our group,” Kovac has reacted to reporters.

“However, the rest of the teams in this group are also serious contenders.”
