Breaking News:Zlatko Dalic disgraces Kalinic after refusing to play against Nigeria


Zlatko Dalic spits fire as he angrily sent striker Nikola Kalinic home from the World Cup in disgrace after refusing to come on against Nigeria on Saturday where Croatia won by 2 – 0.

The AC Milan striker was angry after being left on the bench but was asked to come in but his body language was not what went down well with the manager.

This was the fourth successive international fixture where he had been left on the bench after earlier complaints of a back problem.

Marko Pjaca, nominally a wide player, came on instead and Kalinic’s subsequent exit means Croatia have just Mario Mandzukic left within their squad as an out-and-out No.9.
