According to reports in Croatia, manager Zlatko Dalić has decided to send one of the players in the 23-man squad home due to indiscipline.
Croatian newspaper 24sata, says AC Milan striker Ni­kola Kalinic will be sent home from the World Cup af­ter refus­ing to come on as a substitute in Croatia’s 2-0 victory over Nigeria on Saturday evening.
Dalic asked Kalinic to replace Mario Mandžukić with five minu­tes left on the clock but the striker refu­sed, saying he has a back inj­ury.
The Croatian manager still made the substitution, bringing on Juventus winger Marko Pjaca.
Croatia have called a press conference today and the announcement that Kalinic has been expelled from the squad is expected to be made official, leaving the team with 22 players.
An own goal from Oghenekaro Etebo and a Luka Modric penalty gave Croatia a 2-0 win over Nigeria at the Kaliningrad Stadium.
