Cameroon, who lost 1-0 against Mexico in their opener, are seeking their first World Cup win since 2002 .Their next opponents Croatia, who have failed to reach the knockout stage since an impressive third-place finish in 1998, are also fighting for survival after losing their opener 3-1 against Brazil.Coach Niko Kovac was confident he would have Modric available and welcomed the return of suspended striker Mario Madzukic, who will reclaim his spot from Nikica Jelavic to lead the line in a 4-2-3-1 formation.Initial outbursts over a contentious penalty to Brazil with the score 1-1 quickly gave way to pundits' criticism of Kovac's tactics as Croatia sat back after taking an early lead, and the 42-year-old coach promised a more adventurous strategy against the Cameroonians.
