Mandzukic 'potentially serious' injury

Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic sustained a “potentially serious” ankle injury while playing for Croatia last night.

The striker had been on the scoresheet in the World Cup qualifier against Finland, but limped off after an hour.

It was a blow to the same ankle he has been struggling with recently.

“Mario’s problem is potentially serious, as he limped away despite the fact he has a very high pain threshold,” explained Croatia Coach Ante Cacic.

“Over the next few days we’ll see the extent of the issue and work out what is to be done next.”
