2018 FIFA WC: Croatia star doubtful for the final

XtraTime Web Desk: Croatia ace Ivan Perisic could miss the World Cup final after picking up a thigh injury in the win over England.

The Inter Milan ace, 29, has been one of the standout players of this year’s tournament and scored the equaliser against the Three Lions.




The winger was taken to hospital for scans on a thigh knock that could rule him out of Sunday’s showpiece final.

And the whole of Croatia will be praying his leg can recover from the blow in time to face France.




Mario Mandzukic got the extra-time winner for the men in black as they get set to go one further than they did in the 1998 World Cup in France, when they were KO’d in the semi-finals by the hosts.
