Modric adds to Bilic woes

LUKA MODRIC played no part in Croatia's final warm-up game ahead of Euro 2012 last night as Slaven Bilic's men conceded a last-gasp equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Norway in Oslo.

Modric missed training on Friday was left out of the squad last night amid concerns for his fitness, but medical staff gave no indication of the problem, saying only that "it's nothing serious and there are no signs of any illness".

And there was further bad news for Bilic ahead of next Sunday's opening Group C game against Ireland as Vedran Corluka was also rested as he reported feeling back pain a few days ago, while Ivica Olic asked to be substituted with 71 minutes gone due to an injury.
