World Cup 2018: Croatia's Ivan Perisic Might Miss Final Showdown Against France

Ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup final clash between Croatia and France on Sunday, Croatia semi-final hero, Ivan Perisic, remains a major doubt over injury.

Croatia winger, Ivan Perisic, is reportedly a major doubt for his country’s first ever World Cup final after suffering a thigh injury in their semi-final game against England on Wednesday.

Croatia will face France in Sunday’s final after coming from a goal down to beat England.

Perisic received treatment in a Moscow hospital on Thursday after playing a key part in Croatia’s semi-final win over England at the Luzhniki Stadium.

The 29-year-old, Inter Milan winger scored and provided an assist for Croatia in the 2-1 win and was named the Budweiser man of the match in the encounter.

Perisic after his side’s win over England, believes that defeat to France 20 years ago in the semi-finals will help spur on his team-mates when the two sides meet again on Sunday.

“France stopped us in the semi-finals in 1998,” he told FIFA.com

“We will have some extra motivation because of that, for sure. But this is a totally different story. They are favourites, but we will do our best to surprise them. We have three days to prepare ourselves.

“We are all happy to be staying in Moscow, that was our goal. Our dream is so close now.”
