Luke Modric not seriously hurt, Croatian FA Reveal

Warren Little

Luka Modric was not seriously injured in the opening game against Brazil and will return to normal training with the rest of his teammates, the Croatian FA have confirmed.

Luka Modric's injury picked up against Brazil is not significant, and the midfielder will return to training with the rest of the side as normal.

Modric will rest on Sunday, along with the rest of the side, before returning to normal duties. He is expected to start the next game.

Modric picked up the injury to his foot in the opening game against Brazil, but after being sent for a scan, tests have revealed that there was no fracture or damage to ligaments or tendons, with the Croatian FA releasing the information to the public after the player went for an MRI scan in Salvador earlier.

Croatia will have a difficult task to pick themselves up after their opening controversial loss to Brazil, and their progress likely rests on the outcome of their game against Mexico, who earlier defeated Cameroon 1-0 in the early game on Saturday, thanks to a goal from Oribe Peralta.
