Croatia Striker Sent Home From World Cup After Refusing To Come On Against Nigeria


Croatia striker Nikola Kalinic has been sent home from the World Cup in disgrace after refusing to come on as a substitute during their 2-0 victory over Nigeria. Croatia have thrown Nikola Kalinic out of their World Cup squad after he refused to play. The striker was named on the bench for Saturday’s opening Group D clash against Nigeria. National boss Zlatko Dalic ordered the striker to get ready to come on late in the 2-0 victory over the African nation. However, Croatian media outlet 24sata claim the AC Milan star declined to enter the fray. And that has led to Dalic axing the 30-year-old and sending him home this morning. The shocking incident was referred to by the manager after the game when he told reporters the team had finished without injuries but “with a problem”. The Croatian FA has not confirmed the forward’s expulsion. Dalic is set to speak to the media later this afternoon. The news comes amid apparent transfer talks between Milan and Sevilla for Kalinic. The La Liga side want to bring the experienced ace in on a season-long loan but the Serie A giants are looking for a permanent £17.5million deal.
