BREAKING: Luka Modric could miss up to 5 weeks

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

Luka Modric left Croatia's game with a suspected groin injury, and his doctors over at the Croatia training camp indicate that he will miss from 3 to 5 weeks of action, according to Spanish radio show El Partido de las 12. That could mean that Modric might not return to the lineups until the Christmas break ends, since it might be worthy for Real Madrid not to rush him back for the FIFA Club World Cup.

Again, considering how tricky these muscle injuries are -- and also how important he is in Real Madrid's roster -- it would be good for the doctors to evaluate his groin properly just to make sure that he doesn't get injured as soon as he steps on the pitch again.
