Modric fit to face Cameroon

News

The Real Madrid star was previously a doubt for the crunch Group A tie after hurting his foot in his country's controversial 3-1 loss to tournament hosts Brazil.
 
"Luka is going to be 100% fit," said Kovac. "He did well Tuesday and Monday in training, no problems there. He will be 100% match fit."
 
"We know what this match means to us and Cameroon. We’ve come here to play football and win three points because it means so much to us. Let’s not dwell on the maths, let’s focus on the game and the three points.
 
"Cameroon have to win to have any chance, and so do we. We could even play for a draw but we want three points, we will play our game.
 
"They are a strong team with high quality, but we want to impose our style of play. It is the same as I said after Brazil: if we play the same way I don’t see why we wouldn’t progress. We will fight and I am convinced that we are going to win the game."
 
The upcoming contest is a must-win for both countries, as defeat will seal their elimination in the opening round of the competition. Group rivals Brazil and Mexico both have four points from two matches.
