Nikola Kalinic will reportedly be sent home from Croatia’s World Cup squad, after the Milan striker refused to come on against Nigeria.

Zlatko Dalic’s side won 2-0 on Saturday night, thanks to an own goal and a Luka Modric penalty.

According to 24sata though, the Coach asked Kalinic to come on for Mario Mandzukic with five minutes remaining, but the striker said he couldn’t as he had a back problem.

Juventus winger Marko Pjaca came on instead, and the website is reporting that Kalinic will be sent home today.

A Press conference has been announced for 16.15, and which point it’s expected to be officially confirmed.
