As Croatian Football Federation received Ivan Perišić's SARS-CoV-2 positive test result, the national team medical staff has informed the relevant epidemiological authorities of the situation and confirmed that the national team has respected all the civil protection measures of the Republic of Croatia and the UEFA Return to Play Protocol during the EURO 2020.  

In accordance with the submitted information, the epidemiological authorities have assessed the respected measures and confirmed that the test-positive Ivan Perišić stays in 10-day isolation, while the other national team players, coaching staff and delegation members require no self-isolation. Croatia national team takes off from Pula to Copenhagen on Sunday, 10:35 CET, and plays Spain on Monday, in the EURO 2020 round of 16, at 18:00 CET.

"We are aware that this situation can happen to every team and every individual. Therefore, we have respected the national measures and the UEFA Protocol from Day 1, to prevent the self-isolation measures for a greater number of players. Considering this new development, the medical staff is doing everything in its power to prevent the further spread of the virus, as we successfully did last autumn, when individual cases occurred during the UEFA Nations League. This includes the antigen testing that confirmed there are no other positive persons in the national team. We regret that Perišić will miss the Spain encounter, and wish him a speedy COVID-19 recovery, with as few symptoms as possible", said team doctor dr. Saša Janković.
