A Croatian player, Nikola Kalinic will be full of regrets as he is going to miss the Russia 2018 world cup final which Croatia will be playing against France on Sunday.
Nikola Kalinic was sent home right from the team’s first game at the world cup cup due to pride. After he was told by the coach to come on as a substitute 5 miniutes to the end of the game against Nigeria, Kalinic refused. He was the second top striker after Mario Mandzukic depended on by the Croatians.
After the game, Kalinic refused to apologize to the coach despite pleas from other coaching staff for him to do so. That led to him getting sent home.
Away from the team, he shared pictures showing him having a nice time, as it appeared he thought the team could never make it far in the tournament.
Fortunately for the team, they are now in the first ever final since reaching the France 98 semifinals. That alone has written their names in the hearts of every Croatian.
