Rakitic Out of Nations League Clash Against England

Coach has confirmed that Midfielder will play no part in Croatia’s crunch clash with the Three Lions.

Rakitic was substituted during the second half of Croatia’s dramatic 3-2 victory at home to Spain on Thursday, with Tin Jedvaj hitting a 93rd-minute winner.

That result set up a decider against England at Wembley on Sunday, but Rakitic will be unable to play due to his injury.

“I asked for the change because I had discomfort,” Rakitic said after the Spain win.

Croatia will qualify for the finals of the inaugural Nations League if they beat England in a repeat of the World Cup semi-final, but will be relegated to League B if they lose.
