Wales can head into their clash with Croatia this evening "with renewed optimism" according to striker Steve Morison.
It follows Wales' 2-1 win over Scotland last Friday night thanks to a late double from Gareth Bale.
Friday night's result mean they have now moved off the bottom of Group A up to fourth place.
But despite the optimism tonight's match is certainly not going to be a walk in the park for Chris Colemen's men with their opponents sitting joint top of the with Belgium.
The win over the Scots was the first of the Coleman era, after he replaced the late Gary Speed at the helm in January.
Wales had endured a disappointing start to the campaign, opening with defeat to Belgium, before suffering a 6-1 thrashing in Serbia.
But Morison insists they never gave up hope of delivering results under the new manager
There could be several changes to tonight's team with defender Adam Matthews in line for a possible return to action.
Matthews, who missed the Scotland match due to an ankle problem, has travelled with the squad to Osijek and will be assessed ahead of kick-off.
Meanwhile Midfielder Aaron Ramsey will miss tonight's match through suspention after picking up his second yellow card of the campaign in Friday's contest, with Dave Edwards having been called up in his place.
