Croatia forward Ivan Perisic tested positive for the coronavirus and will miss the match against Spain in the round of 16 of the European Championship.
Perisic will have to self-isolate for 10 days, the Croatian team said in a statement. The rest of the squad and coaching staff tested negative.
“Medical staff isolated Ivan from the other members of the national team,” the Croatian team said, “and immediately and thoroughly informed competent epidemiological authorities about the situation, providing evidence of complying with all the necessary measures aimed at protection against the spread of coronavirus.”
The quarantine period will also sideline Perisic if the 2018 World Cup finalists reach Friday’s quarterfinals and the semifinals on July 6.
