Nikola Kalinic has reportedly turned down his World Cup runners-up medal.

He was quoted as saying, “thanks for the medal, but I didn’t play in Russia.”

Kalinic was infamously sent home from the Croatia team after refusing to go into a match as a substitute, and so maybe missing out on an opportunity of a lifetime has taught him some humility.

LOL I don’t see it either.

On to the links.
