Ryan Giggs has warned his side to be cautious of Luka Modric as Wales will face Croatia in the Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Wales were drawn in Group E alongside Croatia, Slovakia, Hungary, and Azerbaijan.

Giggs, who became Wales manager in January, is confident of his team’s chances of qualification and was happy to be in a five-team group.

The 45-year-old while happy with the draw, singled out Croatia as the biggest threat for his team as they aim qualification.

“It’s a five-team group so I think you’ve got to be relatively happy with that,” Giggs told Sky Sports.

“It could have been worse, could have been better.

“There are some tough teams in there, Croatia being the stand-out one. In Modric, they’ve got one of the world’s best players.

“They’ve got some really, really outstanding players. A team that’s just full of character never gives up. So we’re going to have to play really well to beat them.”
