Nikica Jelavic gets among the goals as Croatia record a 4-0 win over South Korea.

Everton's Nikica Jelavic found the net as Croatia recorded a 4-0 international friendly victory over South Korea at Craven Cottage this afternoon.

The deadlock was broken in the 32nd minute by Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic, who headed in from close range.

Veteran full-back Darijo Srna then made it 2-0 four minutes before the break when he curled the ball into the net from the edge of the area.

Jelavic, who replaced Mandzukic at the break, got his name among the scorers with 54 minutes played when he converted a pass from former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luka Modric.

The scoring was rounded off five minutes later by Fulham centre-forward Mladen Petric, whose chipped effort nestled in the net.
