Rebic ruled of Croatia’s World Cup qualifier against Malta

Ante Rebic will not be in Croatia’s squad that will be facing Malta in the World Cup qualifiers this month as the AC Milan forward has been ruled out with a muscle injury, the Balkan nation’s FA (HNS) said on Friday.

Kristijan Lovric, who plays for Croatian top-tier side HNK Gorica, was called up to replace Rebic as the 2018 World Cup runners-up get their qualifying campaign underway.

“National team coach Zlatko Dalic and the medical staff have been in contact with Rebic and the medical staff of his club AC Milan and it has been established he will miss the opening three World Cup qualifiers,” the HNS said in a statement.

Croatia visit neighbours Slovenia in their opening Group H match next Wednesday followed by home games against Cyprus on Saturday and Malta on March 30.
