Nikica Jelavic returned to the scorers list for the first time since the start of January with a goal in Croatia’s 4-0 international friendly win over South Korea on Wednesday night.

The Everton star made it just two goals in his last 12 appearances in all competitions when he came off the bench at half-time at Craven Cottage to slot home Luka Modric’s through ball with his first scoring opportunity.

Jelavic had made it 3-0 after Mario Mandzukic and Darijo Srna had put the Croatians in control before Fulham’s Mladen Petric scored on his home ground with a deft chip to wrap up the contest in the 85th minute.
