Kalinic Out of the Croatian National Team Squad
It has been confirmed officially that AC Milan striker Nikola Kalinic has pulled out of the Croatian national team squad due to a thigh injury.
The forward played 79 minutes from the Rossoneri’s 0-2 defeat to AS Roma yesterday, but later revealed that he had used painkillers to play in the match.
Croatia coach Ante Cacic revealed today that Kalinic will be checking in Milan to find out how severely the injury rate is, and the Federation now ensures that he will not be fit to join the squad.
“Nikola Kalinic will miss the qualifiers against Finland and Ukraine due to a thigh injury confirmed by MRI today in Milano,” the statement from HNS said.
Kalinic is a player belonging to Fiorentina, but he has been on loan to AC Milan since mid-August this year.
