ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic looks like he will be staying with the national team after leading it to the World Cup final.

There have been reports that Dalic could leave because of problems with the federation. But Dalic says he and Suker "resolved all the issues" during their meeting.
