The Croatian should be fine.

Luka Modric had to leave Croatia's game against Bulgaria at half-time with pain in his groin. The midfielder is not injured as Croatia's coach Ante Cacic decided to play it safe.

"I wanted to take him off because he had some pain in his groin and we did not want to take any chances," said Cacic.

Although Modric should be fine, he could also need to take some time to recover properly from this physical problems. Real Madrid have already lost Karim Benzema for a couple of weeks with a hamstring injury picked up during this FIFA break and losing Modric could also be devastating.

Knowing how tricky muscle injuries are, Modric should not feature for Croatia until his condition is tested. Real Madrid will host Levante this next weekend and that could be a good game to give Modric some more rest in order to have him ready for the upcoming matches against PSG.
