Croatia captain Dumaguy Vida played 45 minutes of his team’s 3-3 draw with Turkey before discovering that he had tested positive for the Coronavirus just hours before the match

The 31-year-old center back had retested a negative Covid-19 on Monday with his national team mates ahead of a friendly against Turkey and subsequent Nations League matches against Sweden and Portugal.

But the tests on the morning of the match in Istanbul saw a « possible positive result » for the Beşiktaş defender during the match, and therefore he was replaced by Philip Urimovic as a precaution

After that, further tests confirmed that he did indeed have the virus and was immediately isolated

According to a statement issued by the Croatian Football Association: « The medical service of the Croatian national team received initial information at the end of the first half between the two halves that there is one possible outcome. »

« This is a common test procedure, and the » suspicious « result is retested to confirm the result

‘As at that time coach Zlatko Dalic had already made the decision to change Vida, the medical service of the national team isolated Vida in accordance with all epidemiological measures until the test results were confirmed

It is decided that all members of the national team and other employees, whose test results were negative, will travel to Stockholm, taking into account that the national team has complied with all epidemiological measures, in accordance with the European Football Association’s return to play protocol

Croatia had to come from behind on two separate occasions before wasting their lead in a 3-3 draw in Istanbul, which included Vida receiving a penalty kick for Everton striker Senk Towson to put it into the net.

Dalic’s team will face Sweden on Saturday in the Nations League and are currently third in Group C in League A, but have only scored three points from their first four matches
